Redband Trailer For BAD MILO Is Gloriously Bonkers And Amazing

I will shove you right back up my ass!
Before we even talk about the movie, can I just have a moment to squeal with delight and the straight up amazing assembly of talent for the movie? Just Gathering Ken Marino (The State, Veronica Mars, Party Down), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld), and Peter Stromare (Fargo, The Big Lebowski) along with an assembly of terrific character actors alone would shoot this near the top of my “must see” list. Throw Jay & Mark Duplass as producers for good measure while you’re at it as well. 
When you gift that level of talent a truly batshit insane sounding idea that is rife with the pulpy goodness the best B-movies are made of, I can’t help but sit up, take notice and start salivating the prospect of making sweet, dirty love to this movie with my eyeballs moments after its released. Marino plays a stressed out, overworked husband that begins suffering from crippling intestinal pain that leaves him doubled over and bleeding.  Come to find out, it’s nothing as simple as ulcers causing Marino discomfort. Rather, it’s a three foot tall mini man-eating demon that looks like the bastard love child of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and E.T. 
The redband trailer below does nothing to dispel the notion that the level of talent attached to Bad Milo is going to help elevate the film above its schlocky premise into something truly special. Marino has been one of my favorite comedic character actors since the mid nineties. In a perfect world, he, Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion would be headlining Three Amigos inspired comedies twice a year on the big screen. 
Magnet releases BAD MILO on various VOD platforms August 29th in front of a limited theatrical engagement in October.
