What to Watch on IFC: March 26 – April 1

March has swept in like a lamb and is heading out like a lion or something like that. All we know is that spring is in the air, which means allergens ahoy. With all the sneezing, wheezing and watery eyes, we are staying inside until winter. Luckily there’s a lot of great stuff to watch on IFC while we wait for our allergy meds to kick in.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Got a case of the Mondays, Garfield? There’s nothing to chase those workaday blues away like watching American history come to life under Michael Mann’s deft direction. That’s right we’re showing “Last of the Mohicans” at 8/7c. Daniel Day Lewis will take those Mondays and kick them all the way to Tuesday.

Tuesday

We’re starting a new tradition here at IFC: Awkward Tuesday. For the inauguration celebration, we want you to curl up with your mom (your dad can come too) and watch “Spanking the Monkey” at 10:30 p.m. ET. We’re know you’re going to want to watch David O. Russell’s challenging and controversial cinematic debut about an introverted college student and the incestuous disaster of a summer that follows his freshman year with your mom to mark the day!

Wednesday

Ah Wednesday, two days down, two days to go, luckily “The Last Legion” will get you over Hump Day in style. The film takese you back to the days of ancient Rome and the time of the Arthurian legends. Starring Colin Firth as military commander Aurelius, who is assembling a cadre of rebels, including Ambrosinus (Sir Ben Kingsley), the Indian female warrior Mira (Aishwarya Rai), and Romulus, a young Roman child poised to inherit the throne the Dino DiLaurentiis-produced film combines the best of fantastical history. The final triumphant stand against the barbarian invaders of Rome starts at 8 p.m. ET. Take that Wednesday.

Thursday

Director David Fincher’s dark, stylish thriller “Se7en” is a memorably dark and twisted thriller. Set in a hellish vision of a New York-like city, where it is always raining and the air crackles with impending death. The film stars Det. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman), as a homicide specialist just one week from a well-deserved retirement, who teams with rookie Brad Pitt to crack a fiendish series of murders based on the seven deadly sins. Be sure to watch the movie, but don’t open the box. It starts at 8 p.m. ET.

Friday

Friday Night Frights takes a creepy twist under Spanish filmmaker Alejandro Amenabar’s direction. “The Others” stars Nicole Kidman stars as a devoutly religious mother of two ailing children who has moved her family to a mansion on the English coast while awaiting her husband’s return from World War II, though he has been declared missing. This is no Narnia, though, and things quickly get spooky and then even spookier. The chills start at 8/7c.

Saturday

Nothing says good times like spending Saturday night locked up safe inside your house while getting the shit scared out of you by watching slasher flicks. We’re here to help you live the dream by showing “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning” back-to-back beginning at 8/7c. Don’t forget, if you cover your head with a blanket you’re invisible.

Sunday

It may be April Fools Day, but no joke we’re going to spend the day trying to make you laugh. To help us achieve our goals, we’re showing “Napoleon Dynamite” at 8/7c followed by “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” at 10/9c. Vote for Pedro!

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
