What to watch this week on IFC: October 22 – 28


Posted by on

As far as weeks of October go, this one is pretty lame, after all it’s still over ten days until Halloween. How long must this waiting game go on? Luckily there are lots of great movies on IFC this week to help wile away the hours between now and free candy.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


It’s the end of the world in “Apocalypto,” but they don’t feel fine. Would you if the Mayan civilization was drawing to a close around you? Nope and neither does Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood), a tribesman who’s on the run after he’s chosen as a human sacrifice to the deities who control the crops. Yeah, Jaguar Paw is definitely not an REM fan. The world ends at 10:30 p.m. ET


Make your Tuesday 100% more interesting by watching “Repo! The Genetic Opera” at 10:15 p.m. ET. In the so-called opera, a worldwide epidemic allows a biotech company to manage an organ-financing program that allows it to foreclose on and harvest human body parts.


Are you going as Jason Statham for Halloween again? Get some inspiration by tuning into “Transporter 3” at 8/7 c. Statham stars as mob courier Frank Martin given the task of transporting a cynical Ukrainian woman (Natalya Rudakova). Making the assignment even more invigorating? They are fitted with shackles that will explode if they wander too far from his car. Fun!


We know it’s never too early to start getting on Santa’s good side and luckily we know his favorite movie. That’s why we’re showing “Reindeer Games” at 10:30 p.m. ET. Ben Affleck stars as an ex-convict who wants to start a new life with his girlfriend (Charlize Theron), but her brother (Gary Sinise) involves him in a scheme to rob a casino. Want to avoid coal in your stocking? Tune in.


Watch Denzel Washington’s Oscar winning portrayal of a dirty dirty cop. “Training Day” starts at 10:30PM 9:30c starring Ethan Hawke as a rookie cop who gets partnered with Washington’s corrupt Los Angeles narcotics officer who wants to include him in his schemes.


Get ready to scream tonight at 8/7c when we show “Scream 3.” In the third installment of the popular horror series, murders draw a young woman (Neve Campbell), a reporter (Courteney Cox Arquette) and an ex-policeman (David Arquette) to the set of a movie inspired by horrific events that they survived.


Did you ever wonder what would happen if zombies invaded the set of Big Brother? Find out when we show Dead Set in back-to-back episodes starting at 1 p.m. ET. Who knew that zombies would be such an exciting addition to the Big Brother house?

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.
