A twisted horror sequel is among the movies on TV tonight

It sees the return of a horror icon.

Finally, the weekend is here!

And if you stay tonight, there are some solid movies playing on TV.

Here are your options.

Deadpool – E4 – 9pm

Ryan Reynolds is the mercenary with a mouth.

The A-Team – Comedy Central – 9pm

Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson and a stage-stealing Sharlto Copley revive the classic TV show.

Zombieland: Double Tap – Movie 4 – 9pm

The long-awaited sequel to the hit 2009 zombie comedy.

The Expendables – Classic Turner Movies – 9pm

Sylvester Stallone directs and stars in this throwback to older action films.

Shut In – Horror Xtra – 9pm

Naomi Watts leads the cast in this psychological horror with a meager 5% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid – TG4 – 9:05 PM

It’s Friday, which means TG4 is showing a western.

Countdown – RTÉ2 – 9:35 p.m.

Not the long-running quiz show, but 2019’s horror about a killer app starring Elizabeth Lail (Netflix’s You).

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 – Virgin Media One – 10:15 p.m.

This superhero sequel starring Andrew Garfield as the titular web-slinger is widely considered the worst Spider-Man movie.

Hellbound: Hellraiser II – Horror Xtra – 22:50

Our pick for tonight is the sequel to the 1987 classic hellraiser.

In the follow-up, teenage Kirsty (Ashley Laurence) is admitted to a mental hospital following the traumatic ordeal she went through in the original.

Unfortunately for her, her doctor (Kenneth Cranham) becomes obsessed with the occult and ends up freeing the Cenobites again.

Much more sprawling and messy than the first Hellraiser, Hellbound at least gives Doug Bradley’s villainous Pinhead more screen time.

It also builds on the mythology of the original, as well as its incredibly crude special effects.

Eagle versus Shark – Film4 – 11pm

This romantic comedy was writer-director Taika Waititi’s directorial debut.

US Marshals – Classic Turner Movies – 11:10 PM

Tommy Lee Jones is reprising the character he won an Oscar for playing in The Fugitive for this much less gripping spinoff. Wesley Snipes and Robert Downey Jr are in support.

Armageddon – ITV4 – 23:15

Michael Bay’s hugely entertaining sci-fi disaster flick starring Ben Affleck and Bruce Willis.

Grudge Match – Comedy Central – 11:20 p.m.

This sports comedy sees Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone play aging boxers who step into the ring for one last fight.

Leap Year – RTÉ One – 11:40 p.m.

Amy Adams travels to Ireland in this much-mocked romantic comedy.
