What's a TV movie you highly recommend? As in a film that never got a cinema release but was made for television.

My go to ones are

Alice in Wonderland (1999) and In the Cold Light of Day (1996)

Children of Men. Snowpiercer (2013).
Benjago · 41-45, M
@Sazzio I think those both got like very super limited theater releases so pretty much straight to video/tv....but man....they were both awesome movies.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow. A surprisingly well done horror slasher for being early 80s and made for tv.

One of my favorites I watch every year at's called Trick R' Treat. Pretty sure it was only shown at a couple film festivals before it was released to video/tv.

Defiance 1980 with jan michael vincent, the movie found its success when played on cable tv.

it's on youtube i believe, if you like vigilante films, it is a great film, a hidden gem.
Trilogy of Terror 1975
The killer Zuni doll segment freaked out a nation of children when it was broadcast.

Do Netflix films count as made for TV movies? If so, then [u]I'm thinking of ending things[/u].
The Last Don (1997). It was actually a miniseries, but a decent one.

Salem's Lot. Surprisingly spooky. It was a miniseries, actually, directed by Tobe Hooper(Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist).

I have been searching for a made for TV mini-series that was about desegregation and MLK and the civil rights movement. It was a big deal but I cannot recall the name and struggle to find it in searches.
