Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Start your week out right with a double feature of terror. Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” starts at 8/7c starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and some of the scariest twins ever cast in a movie. Stick around for “Evil Dead 2” at 11/10c when Bruce Campbell battles the forces of evil and his own hand in this campy cult classic.

Tuesday

We’re going to war on Tuesday. First, tune in to “Stop Loss” at 8/7c. In the movie, Ryan Phillipe stars as a soldier who has to take matters into his own hands when the Army tries to force him back into active duty in Iraq, even thought his tour of duty has ended. Then at 10:30PM/9:30c, we’re showing “Punisher: War Zone.” Ray Stevenson stars as the comic book action hero come to life and on the run from mob boss Billy Russoti a.k.a. Jigsaw (Dominic West) who is set on revenge after after an encounter with the Punisher left him horribly disfigured.

Wednesday

We’re showing one of our favorite Coen Brothers movies to help us get over the middle of the week: “O Brother Where Art Thou” starts at 8/7c. The movie, which is a version of Homer’s “The Odyssey” as interpreted by Joel and Ethan Coen stars George Clooney as an escaped convict who fled prison with John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson to search for buried treasure in 1930s Mississippi.

Thursday

At 8/7c, watch the movie that jump started Tom Cruise’s acting career: “Risky Business.” The film stars Cruise as a Princeton applicant who turns his parents’ home into a brothel for one awesome night with the help of a comely call girl played by Rebecca DeMornay.

Friday

Before a brand-new episode of “Maron” airs at 10/9c, watch an “Arrested Development” marathon before the show returns for a new season.

Saturday

The Buzzfeed Block returns with an action-packed double feature. At 8/7c tune in to watch Arnold Schwarzeneggar kick Colombian butt in “Collateral Damage.” Then stick around until 10:15/9:15c for Harrison Ford as “The Fugitive” who is on the run from very determined US Marshall played by Tommy Lee Jones after being falsely accused of murder.

Sunday

High school sucks! Spend Sunday remembering all the reasons you’re glad you’re a grownup and never ever have to step foot inside a high school again with a little help from “Freaks and Geeks” and “Out There.” The potpourri (or Chex Mix) of all our favorite episodes starts at 9 a.m. ET and runs all day until we show “The Shawshank Redemption” a.k.a. one of the best movies ever at 8/7c.

Stomach Bugs and Prom Dates

E.Coli High is in your gut and on IFC's Comedy Crib.

Posted by on

Brothers-in-law Kevin Barker and Ben Miller have just made the mother of all Comedy Crib series, in the sense that their Comedy Crib series is a big deal and features a hot mom. Animated, funny, and full of horrible bacteria, the series juxtaposes timeless teen dilemmas and gut-busting GI infections to create a bite-sized narrative that’s both sketchy and captivating. The two sat down, possibly in the same house, to answer some questions for us about the series. Let’s dig in….

E.coli-class-

IFC: How would you describe E.Coli High to a fancy network executive you just met in an elevator?

BEN: Hi ummm uhh hi ok well its like umm (gets really nervous and blows it)…

KB: It’s like the Super Bowl meets the Oscars.

IFC: How would you describe E.Coli High to a drunk friend of a friend you met in a bar?

BEN: Oh wow, she’s really cute isn’t she? I’d definitely blow that too.

KB: It’s a cartoon that is happening inside your stomach RIGHT NOW, that’s why you feel like you need to throw up.

IFC: What was the genesis of E.Coli High?

KB: I had the idea for years, and when Ben (my brother-in-law, who is a special needs teacher in Philly) began drawing hilarious comics, I recruited him to design characters, animate the series, and do some writing. I’m glad I did, because Ben rules!

BEN: Kevin told me about it in a park and I was like yeah that’s a pretty good idea, but I was just being nice. I thought it was dumb at the time.

ecoli-computer

IFC: What makes going to proms and dating moms such timeless and oddly-relatable subject matter?

BEN: Since the dawn of time everyone has had at least one friend with a hot mom. It is physically impossible to not at least make a comment about that hot mom.

KB: Who among us hasn’t dated their friend’s mom and levitated tables at a prom?

IFC: Why do you think the world is ready for this series?

BEN: There’s a lot of content now. I don’t think anyone will even notice, but it’d be cool if they did.

KB: A show about talking food poisoning bacteria is basically the same as just watching the news these days TBH.

Funny or Die Is Taking Over

FOD TV comes to IFC every Saturday night.

Posted by on

We’ve been fans of Funny or Die since we first met The Landlord. That enduring love makes it more than logical, then, that IFC is totally cool with FOD hijacking the airwaves every Saturday night. Yes, that’s happening.

The appropriately titled FOD TV looks like something pulled from public access television in the nineties. Like lo-fi broken-antenna reception and warped VHS tapes. Equal parts WTF and UHF.

Get ready for characters including The Shirtless Painter, Long-Haired Businessmen, and Pigeon Man. They’re aptly named, but for a better sense of what’s in store, here’s a taste of ASMR with Kelly Whispers:

Watch FOD TV every Saturday night during IFC’s regularly scheduled movies.

Wicked Good

See More Evil

Stan Against Evil Season 1 is on Hulu.

Okay, so you missed the entire first season of Stan Against Evil. There’s no shame in that, per se. But here’s the thing: Season 2 is just around the corner and you don’t want to lag behind. After all, Season 1 had some critical character development, not to mention countless plot twists, and a breathless finale cliffhanger that’s been begging for resolution since last fall. It also had this:

The good news is that you can catch up right now on Hulu. Phew. But if you aren’t streaming yet, here’s a basic primer…

Willards Mill Is Evil

Stan spent his whole career as sheriff oblivious to the fact that his town has a nasty curse. Mostly because his recently-deceased wife was secretly killing demons and keeping Stan alive.

Demons Really Want To Kill Stan

The curse on Willards Mill stipulates that damned souls must hunt and kill each and every town sheriff, or “constable.” Oh, and these demons are shockingly creative.

via GIPHY

They Also Want To Kill Evie

Why? Because Evie’s a sheriff too, and the curse on Willard’s Mill doesn’t have a “one at a time” clause. Bummer, Evie.

Stan and Evie Must Work Together

Beating the curse will take two, baby, but that’s easier said than done because Stan doesn’t always seem to give a damn. Damn!

via GIPHY

Beware of Goats

It goes without saying for anyone who’s seen the show: If you know that ancient evil wants to kill you, be wary of anything that has cloven feet.

via GIPHY

Season 2 Is Lurking

Scary new things are slouching towards Willards Mill. An impending darkness descending on Stan, Evie and their cohort – eviler evil, more demony demons, and whatnot. And if Stan wants to survive, he’ll have to get even Stanlier.

Stan Against Evil Season 1 is now streaming right now on Hulu.
