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.

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.
