What to Watch on IFC in April

April showers have nothing on IFC’s April Splatters. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite scream-inducing films for one serious fright night. There’s “It’s Alive,” featuring a mutated baby lizard monster on a rampage of evil; “Monkey Shines,” about a helper monkey on, er, a rampage of evil; “Pumpkinhead,” directed by special effects wiz Stan Winston; and “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,” based on the true story of the mass murderer who videotaped his brutal acts. It all starts pouring down at 8PM on Thursday, April 9th.

On Thursday, April 23rd, kicking off at 8PM, we’ve got a night of indie (or at least indie in spirit) action, starts off with the one, the only “Robocop,” from schlock auteur Paul Verhoeven, about a police officer turned cyborg on a mission of revenge. Next, Bruce Willis takes on the Irish and Italian mobs during the Prohibition era in the gangster-meets-western “Last Man Standing.” Finally, adding some Oscar-winning hustle to the pack, Ang Lee’s masterpiece of martial arts cinema “Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon” rounds out the night with its tale of lovers and warriors defying gravity to battle for a stolen sword.

Plus, if you were unable to attend this year’s festivities in Austin, don’t fret. IFC has your backstage pass to the best of music, film and all things interactive from the 2009 SXSW Festival. “South by Southwest, Behind the Badge” airs all this month.


  • DRUGSTORE COWBOY One of Gus Van Sant’s earliest features, this film stars Matt Dillon as an addict traveling the open road to rob drugstores. Kelly Lynch and Heather Graham also appear. Premieres Wednesday, April 1st @ 8PM.
  • CHASING AMY Kevin Smith directs this cult indie about a male comic book artist (Ben Affleck) who falls in love with a lesbian (Joey Lauren Adams). Premieres Thursday, April 2nd @ 8PM.

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.

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.
