Storyline

Duncan is an average guy who works at an average office job. But he starts to get pains in his stomach whenever he feels stressed out. Things get worse every time he tries to just hide his stress, by burying it inside. It all comes to a head when that "stress" is turned in to an actual little beast that exits his body via his butt and takes revenge on the things that stress him out. But it soon starts to threaten the one thing he loves, his wife. Written by Michael Hallows Eve

Full of 'critter flick metaphors'!

'BAD MILO!': Four and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Indie horror-comedy film about a little monster, living inside an anxiety-ridden man's intestine, that breaks out (through the guy's ass) and starts attacking all the people causing him stress. The movie was co-written (with Benjamin Hayes) and directed by Jacob Vaughan. It stars Ken Marino, Gillian Jacobs, Peter Stormare, Stephen Root, Mary Kay Place and Patrick Warburton. The film was executive produced by the Duplass brothers (who have written and directed such popular indie comedy flicks as 'CYRUS' and 'JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME'). I found the movie to be really funny and an awesome metaphor for not letting emotional problems eat you up inside. It's also a cool and creepy little critter flick (in the tradition of 80's cult classics like 'GREMLINS', 'GHOULIES' and 'CRITTERS')!

Marino stars as Duncan, an average guy who's been too afraid to stand up to the people, and situations, causing him stress in his life. He's recently been under an enormous amount of pressure at work, from a crooked boss (Warburton), and is having a lot of trouble at home with his loving but domineering wife (Jacobs). Duncan's crazy, sex obsessed, mother (Place) is also always bothering him about wanting grandchildren and he's still tormented by the abandonment of his father (Root), when he was just a young boy. All Duncan's anxieties finally become too much for him when they manifest themselves as a monster (living inside his intestine). The creature really becomes a burden when it breaks out and starts killing everyone causing Duncan stress. Through the advice of his therapist (Stormare) Duncan tries to befriend the critter (naming it Milo), in order to try to prevent it from killing more people.

The movie is really well made; Vaughan's directing is great (from his clever screenplay) and Marino is fantastic in the lead! The supporting cast is all more than adequate as well (especially Stormare, who is hilarious in it) but Marino has never been more relatable or sympathetic (which is surprising given the annoying and antagonistic characters he usually plays). What I really liked about the film is how much it reminded me of the monster movies I loved growing up as kid (in the 1980s). So for me it was really nostalgic but even more impressive than that is how it uses 'critter flick metaphors' to express how important it is not to let inner demons get the better of you. It's also hilarious (in surprising and unexpected ways, and places). I really loved this movie!
