Get Scared Shitless Saturday with “Scream 3” and “The Exorcist”


Posted by on

Brace yourself for terror this Saturday, because it’s our last chance to scare you shitless and we’re going all out. While the main event starts at 8/7c with the fearsome double feature of “Scream 3” followed by “The Exorcist” at 10:30 p.m. ET, we have a day full of terror to get you in the mood for Halloween.

Beginning at 12:15 p.m. ET we’re showing nothing but horror for hours on end. First up is “Tooth and Nail,” a post-apocalyptic cannibalistic fright fest at 12:15 p.m. ET. Then at 2:15 p.m. ET we have Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s “Near Dark,” featuring a bored and lonely Oklahoma farmhand who is lured into the clutches of a group of modern-day vampires by the promise of romance and adventure. It doesn’t go so well. Then we shift gears into “Maximum Overdrive” at 4:15 p.m. ET where Emilio Estevez plays a truck-stop cook who has to fight off big rigs that were demonized by a rogue comet. The terror train just keeps rolling on with “Open Water” at 6:15 p.m. ET. The valuable lesson you need to take away from that film is this: Don’t go in the water, probably ever.

Finally at 8/7c get ready to scream and laugh and then scream again when we show “Scream 3,” starring Neve Campbell as she reprises her role of Sidney Prescott, catching up with the unlucky protagonists two years after the events of “Scream 2.” Now someone in a Ghostface mask is running amok in Hollywood, killing off the cast members of “Stab 3,” the latest chapter in the film series inspired by the events of the “Scream” movies. New players in the game include Parker Posey as a neurotic movie star, Lance Henriksen as an old-school horror movie producer (named John Milton, at that), Scott Foley as a Hot Young Director barely old enough to be out of college and Jenny McCarthy as the token blonde who serves as Ghostface’s first on-set victim. Then at 10:15 p.m. ET we trade in the brutally funny for the truly terrifying with “The Exorcist,” the scariest movie of all time. Don’t say we didn’t warn you when you end up hiding under the covers.

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.
