Back in March we shared the news that Magnet Releasing had picked up the North American rights to Jacob Vaughn's horror comedy MILO, and now we have our first footage from the film (now retitled BAD MILO) via an On-Demand spot that has hit the web. While the spot claims that the film is available to watch now On-Demand, it actually doesn't hit VOD platforms until August 29th.
Ken Marino, Peter Stormare, Gillian Jacobs, Stephen Root and Patrick Warburton star.
Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by 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), 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.
BAD MILO was produced by Adele Romanski with New Artists Alliance’s Gabriel Cowan and John Suits. Executive producers include Mark and Jay Duplass, John Norris, Kerry Johnson, Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller, and Floren Shieh Productions’ Clay Floren and Aimee Shieh.
