Five Films to Check Out on Legend This Week – 190922

Legend continues to pack their schedules with great films and TV shows, but here are our picks you shouldn’t miss this week…

   

Tuesday September 20th, 9pm - Quatermass and the Pit (1967)

An ancient evil is discovered when workers are digging in the London Underground and the professor (Andrew Kier) is sent to investigate. Superb sci-fi horror from Hammer Films.

   

Wednesday September 21st, 9pm - Starman (1984)  

Something a little different from the Master of Horror John Carpenter, as this is a sci-fi romance. Jeff Bridges is the alien that arrives in Karen Allen’s life to give her and the human race hope.

   

Thursday September 22nd, 10.50pm - Open 24 Hours (2018)

No, this is not a horror remake of the beloved BBC series starring Ronnie Barker and David Jason. Set in an all-night gas station, a woman on parole settles in for the night shift of her new job.

     

Saturday September 23rd, 9pm - Convoy (1978)

It’s a big 10-4 for Kris Kristofferson and Ali MacGraw, as they star in this cult classic trucking movie that made everyone want to buy a CB. Ernest Borgnine is the Smokey on their trail.

   

Sunday September 24th, 9pm - 12.10am The Vintage Vault

Legend continues to celebrate the Golden Age of genre cinema with a season of double bills. This week, there are a pair of fifties classics. First up is It Came from Beneath the Sea (1957), which boasts spectacular stop-motion effects by Ray Harryhausen. Then the threat is from other worlds in It Came from Outer Space (1953), directed by Jack Arnold.
