Five reasons to watch “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”


Posted by on

Tonight at 10:15 p.m. ET we are bringing “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” to IFC. The brilliant mash up of horror and teen-sex comedy stars Kristy Swanson as the bubble-headed cheerleader who learns from a Van Helsing-ish stranger (Donald Sutherland) that she’s, like, the reincarnation of this pure female warrior and stuff, destined to rid the world — or at least the Valley — of vampires. No sooner is Buffy getting schooled in the ways of vampire butt-kicking (much to the consternation of meek pretty-boy beau Luke Perry) than the lead vampire (Rutger Hauer) and his leering cronies show up — and leading up the pack is none other than Pee-Wee Herman himself, Paul Reubens. Fans of this film’s popular TV offspring will appreciate the fang-sharp humor but may be surprised to find little evidence of the spooky atmosphere that permeates the series — though there are some inspired moments, particularly the ridiculous death-by-ruler scene. That’s right, death by ruler. Suck it, Eli Roth! Just kidding, he’s too scary to tease.

Still don’t think this movie is for you? Here are five reasons to watch “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” tonight:

1. It spawned one of the best television shows ever.

That’s as much of an excuse as we need to post this awesome Buffy vs. Edward Cullen mash up. Love you, internet!

2. Kristi Swanson

She was Supergirl, for crying out loud, and now she’s a prom queen-turned-vampire slayer. What’s not to love?

3. Peewee Herman

Aside from general awesomeness, he has one of the most epic death scenes ever.

4. Rutger Hauer

5. Ben Affleck

Yes, the A-List star plays a high school basketball player in the film. Here’s the clip, it’s in Spanish, but you get the drift.

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” airs tonight at 10:15 p.m. ET/9:15 p.m. CT; Saturday, Apr. 7 at 8:00 PM ET; Sunday, Apr. 8 at 12:15 AM ET; Friday, Apr. 13 at 8:00 PM ET; Friday, Apr. 13 at 10:00 PM ET; Saturday, Apr. 28 at 10:00 PM 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.
