Starring Ken Marino, Gillian Jacobs, Peter Stormare, Mary Kay Place, Kumail Nanjiani, Patrick Warburton
Directed by Jacob Vaughan
About 30 minutes into Jacob Vaughan’s Bad Milo, the great Peter Stormare, exploring the logistics surrounding the reinsertion of a small demon into one’s rectum, says, “Big fat babies come out of tiny vaginas. Maybe your anus is just like a vagina.” The
title character then proceeds to climb back into its host’s bowels,
thus proving that the anus is in fact just like a vagina. This is the
level of absurdity we’re dealing with in Bad Milo; yet, for a movie that deals with a murderous butt demon, Bad Milo actually takes itself quite seriously.
Bad Milo focuses on the plight of Duncan (Marino), a man with
so much stress in his life that it causes unbearably painful stomach
issues. Pressured by his wife, Sarah (Jacobs), to see an esoteric
therapist that specializes in hypnotherapy (Stormare), Duncan quickly
learns the true source of his gastrointestinal distress: a small demon
living in his colon. Unleashed from the bowels when the stress gets to
be too much, the demon, dubbed Milo, goes on a murderous rampage,
killing those it feels are causing the stress.
While the premise suggests a blood-filled and toilet humor-filled
romp, Vaughan manages to use the colon-dwelling demon as a metaphor for
taking control of your life and coming to terms with the negativity that
surrounds it. Although it’s anything but subtle, with expository
dialogue simply explaining what Milo represents and how to stop him, it
helps to prevent the film sliding into something relegated to the bottom
of a movie bin in the mid-Eighties. The result is a genuinely earnest
and heartfelt film, with literal toilet humor rarely played explicitly
for cheap laughs; it’s a side effect, but Vaughan never allows it to
In fact, almost everything in the film is a perfect counterbalance to
the insanity inherent in its premise. Ken Marino’s performance is more
subdued than one might expect from a man with a demon living in his
colon, as all he seeks is an end to his turmoil. Sporting a serious case
of puppy dog eyes, he plays Duncan as someone who is simply defeated.
Opportunities to take advantage of the fact that he has a murderous
minion at his disposal are there, but save for one instance, Duncan is
little more than a sad man whose options to end his stress are
controlled by the fact that he’s not a cliche. You can’t help but
sympathize with his plight, and it makes his character all the more real
The sources of his stress - his unethical boss (Warburton), his
overbearing mother (Place), and his absent, New Age father (Stephen
Root) - are all outlandish yet weirdly real, keeping the world in which
mythological ass demons exist far more grounded in reality than it
should be. Sadly, Warburton and Root are underutilized, leaving Place
and her new sex toy Bobbi (Nanjiani) to pick up the slack in ways that
would make even the most stalwart of men blush.
As for Milo itself, the evil little bugger resembles a razor-toothed mix of the Ghoulies
and Baby Sinclair from Jim Henson’s “Dinosaurs,” both in appearance and
personality. Comparisons can be made to the character of Simon in Session 9,
at least on a surface level; both represent personality characteristics
typically kept subdued or bottled up. Vaughan could have easily kept
the film a straightforward little B-movie about a rampaging ass demon,
but his decision to inject a healthy dose of humanity and metaphor into
the characters and story makes for an oddly charming yet absolutely
insane debut feature.
Bad Milo is now available On Demand with a limited theatrical run beginning on October 4.

Local fans of the hit NBC action series “The Blacklist” will find extra satisfaction tuning in to tonight’s episode, thanks to Alexander Frekey.
The Dickson City native will appear in “Berlin,” the first of the show’s two-part season finale. It airs at 10 p.m. on WBRE-TV, Channel 28.
Mr. Frekey, 27, will play a guard handcuffed to the villainous character Berlin, played by actor Peter Stormare. The characters will be part of a plane crash sequence on the show, which centers around criminal-turned-FBI asset Red Reddington (James Spader).
“It’s a big, violent action scene,” said Mr. Frekey, who spent two days filming his scenes in an airport hanger in upstate New York.
While he didn’t get to share scenes with Mr. Spader, he did enjoy his time spent with Mr. Stormare, known for his roles in films like “Fargo” and “The Big Lebowski.”
“We were handcuffed together for two days straight,” said Mr. Frekey, son of Ronald and Linda Frekey. “I learned a lot about the guy. He’s really down to earth. A really funny guy.”
As it happens, Mr. Frekey had never watched “The Blacklist” before landing the role.
“I heard it’s amazing,” he said. “I’m looking forward to checking it out.”
Acting is one of several pursuits for the Philadelphia-based Mr. Frekey.
For the past several years, he’s worked as an in-demand fitness model. Currently, he’s doing a lot of work on behalf of the supplement company GAT.
He’s also a competitive bodybuilder. A couple of weeks ago, Mr. Frekey placed second in the super heavyweight division at the John Kemper Classic in New Jersey.
He has appeared in a number of commercials, and served as a spokesman for Planet Fitness gyms.
In the fall, Mr. Frekey will play a bodyguard in the Keanu Reeves action movie, “John Wick.”
“I’ve never taken any kind of formal acting classes. It just came kind of naturally,” said Mr. Frekey before adding with a laugh, “It’s kind of easy to play a big guy.”

There's a pretty big photo gallery at the link.
This week 22 Jump Street premieres starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill. Stars are nothing without a good villain, though, and here we have Swedish actor Peter Stormare as a drug dealer called "The Ghost". With his blunt, hulkish looks, Peter Stormare is often typecast as a soulless monster. Or a hysterical one, eating the scenery. Or just a blunt person with a rude exterior but a heart of gold. Or a sensitive neighbor. Or... Ehm... that's not really typecasting, is it? It's also not fair to say he's mostly chosen for his memorable appearance, as he is attached to a surprising number of animations and videogames as a voice-actor. A jack-of-all-trades, clearly, as long as acting is involved. Therefore, once again here is a gallery of twelve close-ups of one of our favorite thespians to make a quiz. Click through the images below, and guess which twelve movies they're from. No competition, no prizes, just for fun, try to see how far you get without using IMDb. And I'll post the answers on Thursday, unless someone names them all correctly... Read more: http://twitchfilm.com/2014/06/the-many-faces-of-peter-stormare-gallery.html#ixzz34p1MgpM7
