this-is-only-a-test_emergency_broadcast_system2

We were never great at Latin, but there is one phrase we remember: Carpe Diem! And you’ll want to carpe that diem when you see what we have on the schedule this week. From “Napoleon Dynamite” to Monty Python to Tarantino we have all your favorites. So go ahead and carpe that diem all night long. Diem means couch, right?

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

We’re kicking the week off right by airing “Teeth” at 9:45 p.m. ET. If you don’t know the movie, it’s like a women’s studies class minus the college tuition plus massive amounts of horror. If a woman with extra teeth in unexpected places doesn’t fill you with terror, how about being left alone in the ocean? “Open Water” starts at 8 p.m. ET.

Tuesday

We’re showing “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” at 8 p.m. ET, so now is probably a good time to wrap the couch in plastic, because you’re about to wet yourself laughing. Even if you need to change your pants, just remember to always look on the bright side of life.

Wednesday

Way before “Black Swan,” director Darren Aronofsky was making us twitch with “Requiem for a Dream.” The dark drug-fueled drama, based on the novel by Hubert Selby Jr., stars Jared Leto, Jennifer Connolly, Marlon Wayans and Ellen Burstyn so you know the acting is top notch, too. The “fun” starts at 11 p.m. ET.

Thursday

Do it right on Thursday night by stocking up on Doritos and Mountain Dew and watching some of Tarantino’s finest work. Yep, we’re showing “Kill Bill.” In “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” which starts at 8 p.m. ET, watch as Uma Thurman awakes from a coma, to seek vengeance against her former boss and his ruthless gang (Lucy Liu, Vivica A. Fox). Then the action continues at 10 p.m. ET, in“Kill Bill: Vol. 2,” Uma Thurman goes after the man’s younger brother (Michael Madsen) and her one-eyed counterpart, before confronting her former boss (David Carradine).

Friday

Get your Friday Night Frights with back-to-back bloodshed from IFC. “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” starts at 8 p.m. ET followed by “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.” We got all the thrills and chills here.

Saturday

While spending your Saturday night watching a gawky teenager (Jon Heder) from an odd family (Jon Gries, Aaron Ruell) help his new friend run for class president against a popular student sounds pathetic, when it’s the movie “Napoleon Dynamite” you know you’re winning Saturday. The movie starts at 6 p.m. ET.

Sunday

In 1971 London, a car dealer (Jason Statham) and his gang of thieves break into a bank vault and find far more than cash and jewelry. That’s right, we’re showing “The Bank Job” and if you don’t watch, Jason Statham will find you and make you. It start at 8/7 c. Don’t be late!
