Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Does the prospect of the work week have you running scared? We’ll help you keep perspective by giving you something to be really scared of when we show “Silent Hill” and “The Hills Have Eyes” in a back-to-back double dose of terror. The thrills and chills start at 8/7c.

Tuesday

It’s a movie so nice, we’re showing it twice! Tune in at 8/7c or 11:15/10:15c for Paul Thomas Anderson’s ode to porn “Boogie Nights.” In the film, a producer (Burt Reynolds) guides a young man (Mark Wahlberg) to success in the 1970s porn industry, but greed and egotism lead to his downfall in the ’80s.

Wednesday

A call girl (Rebecca De Mornay) helps a Princeton applicant (Tom Cruise) turn his home into a one-night brothel. Get into some “Risky Business” at 8/7c.

Thursday

We’re showing “The Shawshank Redemption” at 8/7c. The movie is Frank Darabont‘s screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s novella “Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption” starring Tim Robbins as a man wrongly convicted, who lands in a corrupt Maine penitentiary with two life sentences to serve fro a 1947 double murder he didn’t commit. The film also stars Morgan Freeman, who won an Academy Award for his role.

Friday

It’s the night you’ve been waiting for: “Maron” premieres tonight at 10/9c. In the highly-anticipated show, Marc Maron stars as a version of himself – a comic and podcast host who has a few issues. In the first episode, Marc is tormented by an abusive fan on Twitter. With his podcast guest Dave Foley in tow, Marc decides to teach one internet troll a lesson.

Saturday

It’s the debut of the Buzzfeed Block! Each week, starting May 4th, BuzzFeed will craft a list and we’ll provide a movie for a double-team of awesomeness. To kick things off, BuzzFeed made a list of 17 Incredibly Awesome Movie Prosthetics and we’re showing “Boogie Nights,” starring Mark Wahlberg and a scene-stealing prosthetic.

Sunday

Spend Sunday with Schwarzeneggar. At 8:45/7:45c we’re showing “Collateral Damage” starring Arnold Schwarzeneggar as a man on a mission to find the terrorist who killed his wife and son. It’s a noble mission and you’ll be rooting for him the whole time as he travels to Colombia to mete out his revenge.

Final Countdown

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

Rev Up

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.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.
