Five Reasons to Watch ‘From Hell’ Tonight

Five Reasons to Watch ‘From Hell’ Tonight (photo)

Posted by on

In 1888, a ruthless and cold-blooded killer called Jack the Ripper by the press begins hunting prostitutes in East London, and while the murderer’s work is savage, the mutilation of his victims suggests the fiend has an extensive medical background. And then Johnny Depp steps in to save the day or something. Who cares about the specific plot details when you know the movie is going to be amazing because it teams up serial killer lore with one of the best actors of the era and graphic novelists extraordinaire Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell? Tune in tonight for “From Hell” at 8 p.m. ET and/or 12:30 a.m. ET.

Here are five reasons you should watch “From Hell” tonight:

1. Johnny Depp

It’s no secret that we have an HR-approved corporate crush on Johnny Depp. So when he teams up with …well, anyone, we’re there. Did you see the pics from Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows”? Or the “21 Jumpstreet” trailer? Or “Dr. Seuss”?

2. Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell

This dynamic duo has made some of the best graphic novels of all time. The 572-page (collected) serial “From Hell” is no exception. The book takes as its premise a slightly modified version of Stephen Knight’s theory that the Jack the Ripper murders were part of a conspiracy to conceal the birth of an illegitimate royal baby fathered by Prince Albert Victor, Duke of Clarence.

3. Heather Graham

Who doesn’t love her? Well, Candace from “Portlandia” may not be a big fan:

4. Albert Hughes and Allen Hughes

The sibling directorial team best known for their gritty depictions of America’s urban underground in such films as “Menace II Society” and “Dead Presidents,” changed direction for this film and the result is a gritty depiction of London’s urban underground. In the best way possible.

5. Jack the Ripper

An anonymous serial killer is clearly one scary dude, but when David Cross’ “Todd Margaret” gets in touch with his inner Ripper, it’s just as scary.

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.
