Bad Milo! is a 2013 American horror-comedy directed by Jacob Vaughan and starring Ken Marino, Gillian Jacobs, Patrick Warburton, and Peter Stormare. The movie follows the story of Duncan (Ken Marino), a stressed-out accountant who has been experiencing intense stomach pain due to his stressful job and strained personal relationships. After seeking medical help and trying various therapies, he discovers that the source of his problems is not physical, but supernatural.

Duncan discovers that he has a small, demon-like creature living inside his colon, which he names Milo. Milo manifests himself through Duncan's rectum and emerges as a humanoid creature with sharp teeth and enormous strength. Milo is initially violent and uncontrollable, attacking anyone who gets in his way, but Duncan soon learns that he can communicate with the creature and control his actions. When Duncan's stress and anxiety trigger Milo's violent tendencies, he must find a way to keep Milo under control while getting rid of the stressors in his life.

The film is a dark and irreverent comedy that explores themes of stress, anxiety, and repression, as well as the grotesque side of body horror. The humor ranges from slapstick to crass, with several scenes of Milo wreaking havoc and causing bodily harm. However, the film also has moments of heart and tenderness, particularly in the relationship between Duncan and his wife Sarah (Gillian Jacobs), who struggles to understand her husband's predicament.

Despite its outrageous premise, Bad Milo! is surprisingly well-acted and grounded, with Ken Marino giving a convincing portrayal of a man pushed to the edge by his stress and anxiety. The supporting cast is equally strong, with Patrick Warburton and Peter Stormare providing comic relief as Duncan's hapless boss and an eccentric therapist, respectively.

One of the strengths of the film is its use of practical effects, which make Milo feel more real and tangible than if he had been created entirely through CGI. The creature design by Roger Maeda is both unsettling and endearing, and the physical puppetry by the Chiodo Brothers is impressive.

Overall, Bad Milo! is a fun and entertaining horror-comedy that successfully blends gross-out humor and body horror with genuine emotion and heart. While it may not be for everyone, fans of the genre will find plenty to enjoy in its unique blend of absurdity and humanity.

Bad Milo! is a 2013 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 62.
