Bad Milo is a really decent horror/comedy from Jacob Vaughn that doesn't pull punches when it comes to shit jokes. That's what this is. One big long shit joke that's executed well and has definite cult appeal. The cast is a mediocre group of comedians from various prime time television programs. Ken Marino (Children's Hospital and Party Down), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld and Venture Bros.), Stephen Root (King of the Hill and Office Space), and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley and Portlandia) plus a good deal of other cameos that make the viewer feel at home.
This movie has it's really hilarious moments and it's really gross moments. It is definitely something different. Marino plays Duncan, a really stressed out guy that can't find a way to relax. He starts to suffer from really excruciating stomach pains associated with his uber-stress. This summons a demon that comes out of his butt and viciously murders various people throughout the movie.
One of the things that I really appreciated with this movie was that the film used actual puppetry. However, it had unnecessary CGI blood effects. So I don't really know where to land on that one. Why use CGI blood? Just clean up the mess you make. I don't get it. Anyway, this film is definitely a comedy first with a splattering of horror to make you cringe. I mean how exactly do you have a movie about an ass demon without some gore?
This movie was really good. I had a good time watching it and everyone else seemed to like it too. On that note, I will recommend this movie to anyone looking for an odd date movie or even just a laugh. You will definitely enjoy it.
Did ya know...
Milo and Ralph were mainly controlled by two puppeteers. One handled the body and the other handled the expressive face. See! CGI Sucks!
