FROM THE BACK OF THE BOX:
A horror comedy centered on a guy who learns that his unusual stomach problems are being caused by a demon living in his intestines.
FROM THE BACK OF MY BRAIN:
“Bad Milo” opens on poor Duncan. This loveable schlub internalizes a lot of crap, that is until he develops what can only be called a lower G.I. tract demon. Duncan tries to befriend the little bastard, but it’s not long before it is dropping Duncan’s enemies like flies. At times, the comedic horror feels on par with a Henenlotter movie. But, it’s more than that. Nothing is ever mean spirited, as Duncan and Milo work together to reveal something bigger about how the human spirit endeavors.
Gross out horror comedy rarely gets the love it deserves. I grew up as a kid that worshiped “Critters”, “Munchies” and “Ghoulies”, so little Milo triggers that sense of adoration from me. Gillian Jacobs, Patrick Warburton and Peter Stormare all turn in strong supporting roles. That being said, this is the year that I’ve really started to take notice of Ken Marino. He’s starting to break out of the shadow of “The State” and is showing that he can play strong character parts in quirky outings. What he does in his role as Duncan is showcase that sometimes…shit happens. The heart of the film involves showing how one can deal with life’s hardships by finding supportive friends and sharp weapons.
The Blu-Ray comes with extended outtakes, extended dinner scene, deleted scene, featurettes, interviews, commentary and a trailer. The DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track is clean as hell. However, the 1080p transfer is dark at times. I’m not sure if that was meant to cover up the puppet origins of our titular character. That being said, it was noticeable. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
