10 horror comedies (that are more comedy than horror)


Posted by on

5. “Dead Alive”

Peter Jackson cut his teeth on crazy cult horror comedy action, and this film, originally entitled “Braindead,” is chock full of wild slapstick madness involving a domineering mother to the Norman Bates-esque Lionel Cosgrove turning into a zombie at the hands of the Sumatran Rat-Monkey and Father Jon McGruder, the Kung-Fu Priest who kicks ass for the Lord. If that isn’t enough to get you chuckling, you’re probably reading the wrong list.

6. “Slither”

When Nathan Fillion, Elizabeth Banks, Jenna Fischer and Michael Rooker get together to do a horror movie, you know it’s not going to be straight-faced. Rooker is Grant, a car dealer who gets possessed by an alien parasite and slowly morphs into a weird alien hive-mind controlling massive amounts of grody space slugs that infect everybody in town, and his wife Starla (Banks) and her childhood crush Sheriff Pardy (Fillion) scramble to find a way to stop it – and it gets icky fun when Starla tries to get close to Grant after the disgusting transformation.

7. “Killer Klowns from Outer Space”

Firmly in the B-movie class, this Chiodo Brothers takes this ridiculous concept and makes it pretty unnerving. Does anyone actually enjoy clowns earnestly anymore? They pretty much only exist for lame birthday parties and freaking out people with coulrophobia. Even with the grotesque alien klown designs here, the fact that they can make balloon animals come to life keeps us squarely rooted in laughs instead of scares.

8. “House/House II: The Second Story”

With crazy, over-the-top rubbery creature masks and makeup, William Katt’s 1986 journey into a haunted house drives him wild with visions of his dead army buddy Ben (Night Court’s Richard Moll) while his nosy neighbor (Cheers’ George Wendt) thinks he’s nuts. In keeping with the 1980s Thursday night sitcom theme, “House II: The Second Story” introduces Norm’s buddy Cliff (John Ratzenberger) as Bill Towner, Electrician Adventurer, who’s seen enough tragedy and disaster to make you want to upchuck in your shorts.

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.
