M1979. Deepspace freighter is in­vaded by a mur­der­ous alien which elim­i­nates crew mem­bers one by one. Knock­out spine-tin­gler that prompted three se­quels and var­i­ous rip-offs, scores through fine spe­cial ef­fects, re­al­is­tic, grungy space­ship in­te­ri­ors and Ri­d­ley Scott’s di­rec­tion. Scares the heck out of you from be­gin­ning to end. Sigour­ney Weaver. 9.30pm, Go!

AV. 2006. Fas­ci­nat­ing US take on the HK thriller In­fer­nal Af­fairs with cop Matt Da­mon as a turn­coat re­veal­ing po­lice in­for­ma­tion to Mob boss Jack Ni­chol­son. In turn, un­der­cover cop Leonardo DiCaprio is hard­wired into Ni­chol­son’s out­fit try­ing to find out who the po­lice in­former is. Who’ll find out first? Great per­for­mances all round.
