What to Watch on IFC in August

Posted by on

310x229_hostel_part_ii.jpg IFC is raising the temperature even higher this August. On Thursday, August 12th, we’re bringing you a night of films so horrifying, they’ll make you sweat with fear. Beginning at 7pm, tune in for the original “Saw,” featuring a freakish madman who violently pits people against each other. Things get even freakier in Rob Zombie’s follow up to “House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects.” Plus, check out Eli Roth’s graphic film duo – “Hostel” and “Hostel Part II,” about unsuspecting travelers whose vacations are anything but relaxing. Faint of heart, be warned.

Next, we’re busting out a mean line-up of good guy/bad guy films Thursday, August 19th and Thursday, August 26th beginning at 8pm. Check out cult 80’s crime flicks “Vice Squad,” about a prostitute helping the police bring down a big-time pimp, and “Slayground,” a revenge-driven film about a father wanting to get even with his daughter’s killer. You can also catch Renee Zellweger in one of her earlier roles as a girl on the run in “Love and a .45,” and a young Matt Dillon robbing drugstores cross-country in “Drugstore Cowboy.” Plus, don’t miss some martial arts combat with “The Protector,” and a good ole’ gangster flick, “The Last Word,” about a writer with mob ties who contemplates selling his stripper girfriends’ stories to Hollywood.

Some of those characters have made their way into the brand new series airing every week on IFC, “Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town,” which revolves around a small town murder, and the pursuit of Death by the local residents. Don’t miss back to back episodes beginning August 20th at 10 pm.

For even more comedy, watch a brand new season of Britcom fave “The IT Crowd” every Tuesday at 10 pm beginning August 10th; more Freaks and Geeks every Friday at 11pm; and even the Three Stooges on IFC Monday to Friday at 2am, and marathons every Saturday at Noon.

And if you missed the original airing, or just want to check out why IFC was happily nominated for two Emmy Awards, tune into “Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut)” Sunday, August 1st at Noon.


LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA Legendary actor and noted director Clint Eastwood gets behind the camera for this film about the Iwo Jima battle between the US and Japan during World War II. Premieres Sunday, August 15th @ 7:35PM.

BREAKFAST ON PLUTO A young Irish transgender leaves his town for London during the 1970s in search of his mother, and ends up finding love and friendship along the way.

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

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.
