There’s a hurricane ablowin’ on the east coast, earthquakes in Los Angeles and Arkansas, and a snow storm in the Great Lakes region. This is Mother Nature’s way of saying stay inside and watch IFC.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Get in touch with your inner vigilante when we show “Punisher: War Zone” at 8/7c. Everyone’s favorite anti-hero comes to life in this film with Ray Stevenson playing Punisher who leaves a mob boss Billy Russoti (Dominic West) horribly disfigured. This causes the criminal to change his name to Jigsaw and set out for revenge.

Tuesday

Celebrate All Hallow’s Eve Eve when we show “Creepshow” at 10:15 p.m. ET/ 9:15c. The tale of terror comes from two masters of horror: George “Night of the Living Dead” Romero and Stephen “Carrie” King. King weaves together five tales inspired by 1950s comic books include a nagged professor (Hal Holbrook) and a tycoon (E.G. Marshall) with cockroaches.

Wednesday

It’s Halloween and we’re going to do our best to scare the pants off of you by showing the scariest movie ever: “The Exorcist.” Starting at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 CT we’re airing “The Exorcist” back-to-back for your terrifying viewing pleasure. It’s so scary it will make your head spin backwards!

Thursday

To inaugurate November, we’re showing Tim Burton’s delightfully weird and wonderfully dark “Edward Scissorhands.” It stars Johnny Depp as a deceased inventor’s unfinished creation who becomes an instant celebrity when a cheery suburbanite (Dianne Wiest) brings him home to her family, including her daughter Winona Ryder. It starts at 8/7c.

Friday

Friday Night Frights gets twisted when we show “Strangeland” starring Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider as a psychopath who uses the Internet to lure gullible teens to his basement hideaway. It’s kind of like Craig’s List, but way more terrifying. Tune in at 8 p.m. ET or 11:45 p.m. ET.

Saturday

Attention Trekkies: We are showing “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” at 8/7c. It’s the OG Enterprise crew with Adm. Kirk (William Shatner), Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley) and crew heading out aboard the overhauled Enterprise to find an intelligent entity called VGER.

Sunday

Don’t beam us up, Scotty, we want to feel the Wrath of Khan when we show “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” at 8/7c. Everyone’s favorite intergalactic travelers Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the Enterprise crew battle an old foe (Ricardo Montalban) who blames Kirk for the death of his wife.

Final Countdown

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
