“Embrace your inner demon.” The first trailer has arrived for the SXSW horror comedy Bad Milo starring the hilarious comedian Ken Marino (Party Down and Burning Love). What is this about exactly? Well to keep it short, Bad Milo is about a man who’s stressed out and one day a demon comes out of his ass and kills everyone who causes stress in the man’s life. After the demon kills, he goes back up into the man’s ass. Yes, I know, this is going to be nuts. Check out the trailer and poster below.
If you still need to be convinced, here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by a manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife (Gillian Jacobs from NBC’s Community), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction.
Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.
This looks so unbelievably absurd. It’s going to be a blast to watch. Magnolia Pictures will release Bad Milo early on iTunes and VOD on August 29th and in theaters October 4th. What do you think of the trailer?
