Posted by on

Happy October! Between the return of Onion News Network, Malcolm in the Middle, Indie Screams, and our Arrested Development marathons, we are confident that we are turning October into rock-tober. If you want to rock, while sitting comfortably on your couch, here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Last year, we made a list of the ten scariest movies we could stand to watch. On the list? George C. Scott’s foray into horror, “The Changeling,” which we are showing at 3:45 p.m. ET. Sorry!

Tuesday

It’s Tuesday, which means a new episode of Onion News Network is on the air and in your living room. In tonight’s action packed episode, Cross Examination’s Shelby Cross leads a crusade to rip through every home in America to search for missing one-year-old Baby Kate. Meanwhile, in the FactZone, Brooke and the ONN team report that the iPhone 5 will come conveniently packaged with rumors about the iPhone 6. Tune in at 10/9 C for the best news in America.

Wednesday

Stay up late to watch “Zodiac,” the true story behind the murders that many crime scholars believe to be the most perplexing series of unsolved crimes in modern history. David Fincher tells the mysterious tale of the infamous Zodiac killer, a relentless serial killer is stalking the streets of the San Francisco Bay Area, leaving citizens locked into a constant state of panic, and baffled authorities scrambling for clues. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, and Robert Downey Jr. as men determined to track the clues and find the killer. It starts at 12:30 a.m. ET.

Thursday

In a feverish attempt to air movies with October in the title, at 3 p.m. ET we are showing “The Hunt for Red October” The Tom Clancy novel turned movie stars Alec Baldwin as eccentric CIA analyst Ryan and Sean Connery as Soviet submarine commander Marko Ramius. Ramius sets the plot in motion when he murders his political adviser, burns his orders, and steers his sub Red October towards American waters, hoping to defect. The CIA, aware that the Red October was about to embark on an evasive mission to demonstrate its ability to avoid detection and fire its nuclear missiles upon U.S. installations, believes that Ramius is insane, and that he plans to start World War III.

Friday

Get a double dose of terror that will turn even the saltiest sea dog into a landlubber when we air Open Water and Open Water 2 back to back. The scares start at 7:15 p.m. ET.

Saturday

Pro Tip: Skip the pie when Tim Burton’s “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” airs at 8 p.m. and 12:15 a.m. ET. Johnny Depp stars, not as Dr. Seuss, but as the best barber on Fleet Street, so long as you never want to exit his shop.

Sunday

Spend Sunday getting your socks scared off with “Exam” at 4:15 p.m. ET, “Horsemen” at 6:30 p.m. ET, and Steven King and George Romero’s “The Dark Half” at 8:30 p.m. ET. These movies are so scary you’ll be calling Father Dyer before you know it.

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.
