What to Watch on IFC: October 17 – 23

What to Watch on IFC: October 17 – 23 (photo)

Posted by on

It’s mid-October and Halloween is right around the corner. It’s time to hunker down on the couch (or love seat, we’re not picky) and watch some horror films before the onslaught of trick-or-treaters starts ringing the doorbell every two minutes.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Ever hear the tale of the Wendigo? It’s a Native American myth that says a man who tastes the flesh of another steals that man’s strength, spirit and essence. His hunger, however, will become an unstoppable craving. Intrigued? Start the week off right with a good fright when Antonia Kidd’s “Ravenous” airs at 9:15 p.m. ET.


After back-to-back episodes everyone’s favorite family drama (did you see the season finale?) Malcolm in the Middle, it’s a brand new episode of Onion News Network. This week ONN in introducing a new piece of technology: An updated touchscreen that Tucker Hope can control with his mind. Tune in at 10 p.m. ET to see the darkest corner of Tucker’s mind.


Indie Screams kicks into high gear when “Penny Dreadful” airs at 7 p.m. ET and 12:30 a.m. ET. In the film, a woman (Rachel Miner) haunted by the childhood car crash that claimed the life of her mother and father finds her worst nightmares coming true when she and her therapist (Mimi Rogers) travel back to the scene of the accident in this tale of terror.


Grab your coconuts, bring out your dead, avoid the Knights Who Say “Ni!” and dodge the carnivorous bunny, because the Knights of the Round Table are heading out in “Monty Python and The Holy Grail” airs today at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. ET.


Desperado brothers (George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino) kidnap a preacher (Harvey Keitel) and his kids, commandeer their RV and wind up in a Mexican strip joint where vampires lurk. Yep, it’s Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk Till Dawn” at 8:45 p.m. ET.


Pro Tip: Stay away from the ground. To prove this point, we’re showing “The Descent” and “Unearthed” back-to-back beginning at 9 p.m. ET. Those two movies will help you get over a fear of flying really really quickly.


Wake up early to watch “Game of Death,” Bruce Lee’s final movie at 8 a.m. ET. The star died before this film was completed, so the producers were forced to pad out the running time with outtakes and alternate shots. They also lifted chunks of footage from “Enter the Dragon” and “Return of the Dragon.” The finished product finally hit the screens in 1978, five years after Lee’s death. The film’s finale pits Lee against such formidable opposition as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Chuck Norris.

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.
