Magnet Releasing is handling North American distribution for the acclaimed comedy/horror film BAD MILO, directed by Jacob Vaughan, written by Vaughan and Benjamin Hayes, and starring Ken Marino and Gillian Jacobs. BAD MILO features notable puppetry by Frank Langley and Bob Mano.
Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by his 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.
