Tagline: "He's coming out whether you like it or not." The film Milo is a blend of horror and comedy. This title showed at the American Film Market in October. Here, the film's first poster was revealed. And now, Aldamisa Entertainment has released a higher quality version of the poster for horror fans. The graphic promises a creature feature. A troll, of sorts, looms in a crescent moon. Described as a gremlin in the film, this monster is the root of the protagonist's problems. This creature likes to murder. The blood stained claws on the beast signal that Milo is at least partially successful in his fatalistic undertakings. More details on this horror film will be posted as the production moves to completion. Cast and crew details are below. Release Date: 2013. Director: Jacob Vaughan. Writer: Benjamin Hayes, and Jacob Vaughan. Producers: Adele Romanski and the Duplass Brothers. Cast: Gillian Jacobs, »

Before directing his debut feature film this past July in Los Angeles, Jacob Vaughan (pictured above) came from a background in editing (working for Duplass Bros. projects including the Sundance accepted Baghead, Cyrus and Black Rock). Coming across like a twisted version of The Beaver, Milo is a comedic horror film featuring Ken Marino in the lead alongside Patrick Warburton, Peter Stormare, Gillian Jacobs, Stephen Root, Jonathan Daniel Brown and Mary Kay Place.
Gist: Penned by Vaughan & Benjamin Hayes, this centers on a man (Marino) with intense stomach trouble who learns to his horror that he has a demon living in his intestines. When he gives it permission to come out during a therapy session, the man names it Milo and tries to live a life in which he, not his demon, is in charge. Jacobs will play Marino’s wife, and one of the stresses in his life. Stormare plays the man’s shrink. »
