What to watch this week on IFC: October 15- 21


Posted by on

Halloween is just around the corner, which means that the streets are filled with greedy little children demanding, nay, blackmailing you for candy. If you try and scare the bossy little devils, Power Rangers, and walking dead, or even keep the candy for yourself, their parents get downright angry. What’s a reasonable person to do? Stay inside and watch television, of course.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


When is a zombie not just a zombie? When it’s a Nazi zombie. Get in the Halloween spirit with a viewing of one of the best zombie movies ever: “Dead Snow” at 12 p.m. ET/11 a.m. CT. A vacation takes a grisly turn when medical students (Vegard Hoel, Stig Frode Henriksen) encounter Nazi zombies near their remote mountain cabin.


Go on a family road trip with Steve Carrell, Toni Collette, Greg Kinnear, Abigail Breslin, and Alan Arkin in “Little Miss Sunshine” It’s got more porn, death, and suicide than any episode of “Toddlers & Tiaras.” The dance party starts at 8/7c.


Go into “The Woods,” but don’t go alone or if you do, bring an axe. In the film, a tormented teen (Agnes Bruckner) has terrifying visions, while her classmates at a remote boarding-school for girls go missing. And, well, she should. Tune in for terror at 4 p.m. ET. Did we mention it stars Patricia Clarkson?


Are you ready to be punished? It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re ready because come 10:30 p.m. ET, we’re showing “Punisher: War Zone.” After an encounter with everyone’s favorite ersatz Marvel comic book hero the Punisher (Ray Stevenson) leaves him horribly disfigured, mob boss Billy Russoti (Dominic West) changes his name to Jigsaw and sets out for revenge.


Get a taste of terror that lasts all day long with back-to-back horror movies. The thrills and chills kick off at 9:45 a.m. ET with “The Changeling” starring George C. Scott and ends when you end up running for your mommy in the middle of “The Exorcist” which starts at 8/7c or when you’re hiding under your blankies during “Saw II” at 10:45 p.m. ET.


Get Scared Shitless this Saturday with a double dose of terror staring with “Creepshow” at 8/7c. The movie combines the scary skills of masters of chills George Romero and Stephen King into a multi-part tale of terror. It’s followed by a grisly re-telling of the vagina dentata myth “Teeth” at 10:30 p.m. ET.


We don’t mean to alarm you, but death is coming to town on Sunday. He’ll arrive via Greyhound bus at noon eastern time and stay until his work is done. Oh, did you you think we were talking about real death? We meant the Kids in the Hall’s epic mini-series “Death Comes to Town” which we’ll be showing marathon style starting at 12 p.m. ET/11a.m. CT.

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.
