Posted by on

Hell hath no fury like a woman (or man) scorned, and ex-lovers make for great cinema. Let’s run down the nastiest exes to ever hit the screen.

10. Alex Forrest

Glenn Close sets a high bar as an obsessive mistress who goes rabbit-boiling crazy when her lover spurns her.

9. Jake’s Ex

Carrie Fisher’s unnamed character in The Blues Brothers stays on Jake’s tail for the entire movie, seeking revenge for being left at the altar.

8. Jill Roberts

Spoilers for Scream 4 here, but one of the Ghostface killers in the sequel is motivated by a vicious dumping and shoots her ex right in the crotch.

7. David McCall

Mark Wahlberg played a remarkably malicious ex in 1996’s Fear, bubbling over with white-hot jealousy at the slightest provocation.

6. Suzie Simmons

The cheating ex in lowbrow comedy The Foot Fist Way lives to rub salt in her husband’s wounds by sleeping with as many of his friends as possible.

5. Bill

The antagonist of Kill Bill didn’t take his breakup well, murdering his ex’s new husband on her wedding day and setting the Bride on a path of revenge.

4. Stacy

If “psycho hose-beast” is the first term that springs to mind when people describe you, you might be the psychotic ex from Wayne’s World.

3. Asami Yamazaki

Takashi Miike’s gruesome 1999 horror flick Audition revolves around a beautiful young woman who gets very, very jealous of her lovers.

2. Brandi Web

As played by Lynn Whitfield in A Thin Line Between Love And Hate, Brandi takes the phrase “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” to a whole new level.

1. Ramona Flowers’ Seven Evil Exes

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World features a panoply of murderous ex-lovers, including a movie star, a psychic vegan and an evil mastermind.

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.
