There is not much we don’t like about Guillermo Del Toro’s 2006 film Pan’s Labyrinth and we are so excited that it is playing on Sunday, October 24th at 8:15 p.m. ET. It’s a fairytale played out against the darkly political backdrop of the Spanish Civil War.

As with many fairytales, the trouble starts as young Ofelia’s mother marries a cruel man and is forced to stay in bed during a troubled pregnancy leaving Ofelia on her own. Much like Alice, Ofelia stumbles into a strange world of fawns, frogs, and fairies, but Del Toro has imagined a wonderland far more ominous than anything Lewis Carroll could have imagined. Ofelia is convinced by the fawn, Pan, that she may be the lost princess of magical kingdom. For a lonely little girl grieving for her father, this is a dream come true, even though the dream is very much a nightmare comprised of life-threatening tasks that Ofelia must complete to reclaim her kingdom and her father.

Del Toro skillfully weaves political intrigue into the fabric of the fable creating a rich mixture of myth and mystery. The film is also absolutely stunning, even the moments that have you turning from the screen in horror are striking in their ghastliness. The palette is super saturated and it is clear that Del Toro took some lessons from the graphic novels he tapped into in Hellboy as well as the creeping horror from The Devil’s Backbone to create a truly unique film. You will probably never see another film quite like it. Until, Mr. Del Toro strikes again.

Watch the trailer below and then be sure to tune in on Sunday at 8:15 p.m. ET

Pan’s Labyrinth airs on IFC on Sunday, October 24 at 8:15 p.m. ET.

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.
