Following a successful showing at this year’s FrightFest (read our review here), Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced that Bad Milo! will be released on DVD here in the UK on 20th October 2014.
Here’s the press release:
For over a century, Hollywood has been scaring audiences around the world with its terrifying monsters…but none as terrifyingly funny as Bad Milo!, available on DVD on 20th October from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Ken Marino (We’re the Millers, Wanderlust) and Gillian Jacobs (TV’s “Community,” The Incredible Burt Wonderstone) star in this shockingly original horror comedy about a man named Duncan (Marino) who discovers he has an actual pint-sized demon living inside him. In order to keep it from popping out and murdering anyone who angers him – including his sweet but pressuring wife (Jacobs) – Duncan must learn to embrace his inner demon and control its killer appetite!

This bizarre little creature feature was released in 2013 in the States and was directed by Jacob Vaughan (The Cassidy Kids). I was drawn to Bad Milo in the manner that I imagine many people were, the weird and corny synopsis and the silly poster artwork; and I watched this film without any level of expectation, the only way in my view to go into films like this one. The story is a strange one, and a daft one too for that matter…

Bad Milo (2013)
Directed by Jacob Vaughan
Here lately, Magnet Releasing carries the same clout with me as Cannon Films, New World Pictures, and Vestron Video. That’s not a slam. It’s a compliment of the highest order. Whenever I saw those monikers before any film, I knew I was in for some kind of genre masterpiece. Whether it be action, horror, or science fiction, it would be a movie that I and a several others (you know who you are) would harbor a clandestine love for until the internet and horror cons came along. That’s when we could go public and find kindred spirits that were states and countries away. »
If you told me a movie about Ken Marino’s butt monster would be one of my favorite horror movies of 2013, I’d tell you, “Yeah, that sounds about right.” I mean, Ken Marino is one of the funniest character actors in Hollywood right now, I have a soft spot for practical effects driven creature features, and how are you not immediately intrigued by Ken Marino’s stinky, murderous friend? Bad Milo! charms and chills unlike any horror comedy released last year, and that’s thanks to a unique script that brings to life Marino’s subconscious in the form of an intestine-dwilling pet with a destructive mind of its own.
Bad Milo! will go down as a brilliantly worshipped cult comedy some years down the road, and there are two glaring reasons why – the most obvious being Ken Marino’s casting. You’ve seen him play supporting roles over and over again, »
