M. 2002. When strange things start hap­pen­ing around the house and peo­ple be­gin dy­ing, mum Ste­fanie Pow­ers re­alises she should have lis­tened more closely to her son’s tales about some­one in the cup­board. Rou­tine thriller am­bles on to a pre­dictable end. Martin Neufeld. 8.30pm, One

M. 2007. Mo­tor­cy­clist stunt­man dreams of be­ing like Evel Knievel, jump­ing over lines of buses on his chop­per. Script runs out of juice while he’s still revving it though. Com­edy wastes the tal­ents of Satur­day Night Live alum­nus Andy Sam­berg. Some funny mo­ments, but not enough to power a 90-minute com­edy jump. Isla Fisher. 8.30pm, Show­time Pre­miere

M. 2011. Story de­bates an is­sue that has for cen­turies in­trigued bril­liant minds. Did Wil­liam Shake­speare write his plays?

Vanessa Red­grave, Rhys Ifans, Joely Richard­son. 8.30pm, Movie One

M. 2011. Sem­i­nary stu­dent trav­els to the Vat­i­can to study ex­or­cism, where his doubts con­front him when he meets a pri­est with ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in the field.

AV. 1995. Dark, grim, stomach-churn­ing thriller about a po­lice search for a se­rial killer whose mur­ders are in­spired by the seven deadly sins. A su­perb Mor­gan Free­man is a dig­ni­fied se­nior po­lice­man, near­ing re­tire­ment; while Brad Pitt is his brash young side­kick. Beau­ti­fully filmed thriller, but not for the squea­mish.
