What to Watch on IFC in June

Posted by on

We’re pulling out all the stops this month when it comes to horror, genre, sleaze and shock. June on IFC is not for the faint of heart — check out a grindhouse flick every single night of the week at midnight. The freak fest features films like Dee Snider’s “Strangeland”; pet zombie satire “Fido”; high school horror comedy “Tormented”; campy cannibal classic “Motel Hell”; and “Gothic” (pictured), a seductive and dark twist on the story of Frankenstein from director Ken Russell.

Also check out cult films like teen werewolf dramedy “Ginger Snaps”; ’80s classic “The Gate,” featuring a young Stephen Dorff; and Brazilian sadistic horror with the “Coffin Joe” trilogy. And don’t miss the premiere of Lars Von Trier’s controversial “Antichrist,” and much, much more, all month long.

310x229_priscilla_queen_of_desert.jpgAlso in June, IFC celebrates Pride Month with Out at the Movies. Tune in for a history lesson with the IFC original doc “Fabulous! The Story of Queer Cinema.” Plus, Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce and Terence Stamp star in the hilarious tale of drag queens trekking across the desert in midnight movie classic “The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.”

And, long before he was making million dollar boat movies, Leonard DiCaprio played young, rebellious 19th century French poet Arthur Rimbaud, who embarks on a destructive romance with fellow writer Paul Verlaine in “Total Eclipse.” Check out these films, as well as Cam Archer’s “Wild Tigers I Have Known,” Dirk Bogarde in “Victim,” the bittersweet “It’s My Party,” Gregg Araki’s “Nowhere” and over-the-top action comedy “D.E.B.S” — Thursday, June 3rd and the following week, June 10th starting at 4:45pm.

And, get ready for an all new season of our sketch comedy series Whitest Kids U’ Know. The troupe returns with more antics and back to back episodes every Friday starting June 11th @ 10pm.

310x229_slowburn2004.jpgPREMIERES THIS MONTH:

    • SLOW BURN A district attorney gets caught up in a tangled web after his mistress claims she was sexually assaulted by a man laying dead in her apartment. With Ray Liotta, Chiwetel Ejiofor and LL Cool J. Premieres Wed 6/02/10 @ 8pm.
    • ANTICHRIST A couple (Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg) grieving for their deceased son head out into the woods to try to heal their wounds, only for their relationship to take a shocking turn in this very controversial film from Danish provocateur Lars von Trier. Premieres Wed 6/02/10 @ midnight.
    • THANK YOU FOR SMOKING Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air,” “Juno”) directs this film about a tobacco lobbyist facing the tough task of promoting cigarette smoking as the risks of it become more apparent. Stars Aaron Eckhart. Premieres Wed 6/09/10 @ 10pm.

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.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

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