‘Hostel’ and Other Hotels You Don’t Want to Stay In

‘Hostel’ and Other Hotels You Don’t Want to Stay In (photo)

Posted by on

When watching even the trailer for Eli Roth’s gory pic, Hostel, my face looks like this, but I watch it over and over again, because it is an edge-of-your-seat grossfest that must be seen. And I am not alone. People across the world have seen the movie multiple times and love it. It has spawned two sequels and a dozen of copy cats. People can’t get enough of Hostel. If you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again and again, it is airing tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET. I’m not going to mom out and tell you that your face is going to stick like that, either.

One thing everyone who watches Hostel can agree on, though, is that they would rather turn in their International Youth Hostel card and use their Europass to sleep on the train in an entirely different country than to stay at that particular lodging. Here’s the trailer for Hostel. Now, what kind of review do you think this place gets on

What other hotels or motels or B & Bs would you like to avoid in your travels?

Clearly no one wants to stay at Motel Hell. Well, maybe vegetarians would be okay:

Despite Alfred Hitchcock’s assurance that the bed is comfortable and the Magic Fingers divine, you probably want to avoid Psycho‘s Bates Motel, too:

The Shining took place in a deserted ski lodge with a tragic and bloody past, so it is probably best to be avoided. Yeah, Shelley Duvall, I’m talking to you. What were you thinking?:

And we’re definitely going to complain to management if they try and stick us in Room 1408:

Hostel airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET Saturday, Nov. 27 at 9:45 PM ET and Sunday, Nov. 28 at 2:45 AM EDT

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.
