It’s getting cold outside! Also as Halloween approaches things are getting progressively spookier. There’s only one place you’re truly safe: Inside watching the warming blue glow of the television set.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Start your week off with a scream. We’re showing back-to-back tales of terror when we show horror master Wes Craven’s “Cursed” at 8 p.m. ET followed by George Romero’s and Stephen King’s “Creepshow” at 10 p.m. ET.

Tuesday

Unless you’re Martin Scorsese you probably need more Leonardo DiCaprio in your life. So get your RDA of Leo by watching “The Beach” at 8/7c. In the film he stars as an adventurer looking for a little slice of heaven on an island off the coast of Thailand, but soon discovers it is not what it seems. It’s even more fun to watch when you pretend it’s a prequel to “Inception.”

Wednesday

Before she was trying to blow up Jeremy Renner in “The Hurt Locker,” Kathryn Bigelow was taking down vampires in “Near Dark.” See for yourself what an Academy Award winning director was with a cult classic tale of terror and teeth when we show the screamer at 4 p.m. ET.

Thursday

Tune in tonight at 8/7c to watch Ben Affleck give Rudolph a run for his money in “Reindeer Games.” In the film, Affleck stars as an ex-convict who just 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. What a jerk!

Friday

Skip work or school or your girlfriend’s mom’s funeral so you can stay home and watch one of the most famous sci fi films ever. We’re showing Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey” at 9 a.m./8 a.m. C. Watch to see supercomputer HAL 9000 as it guides astronauts (Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester) on a trip to find the origins of humans.

Saturday

In another installment of Scared Shitless Saturday, we’re showing back-to-back horror sure to, well, let’s just say we named it “Scared Shitless” for a reason. The thrills and chills starts at 8/7c with Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects” followed by the campy cult classic “Evil Dead 2” at 10/9c.

Sunday

Did you turn it off and on? Is it plugged in? The IT Crowd knows the right questions. Get to know Moss (Richard Ayoade), Jen (Katherine Parkinson), and Roy (“Bridesmaids”‘ Chris O’Dowd) when we air back-to-back episodes of Graham Linehan’s The IT Crowd starting at 11 a.m. ET.

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.
