I'll let that settle in for a bit.
Okay. By now you should've already decided if you want to see this film. If you are even remotely interested in butt monsters, then you will enjoy this film.
If you're on the fence about butt monsters, you should start being honest with yourself and admitting this is not really something you can be on the fence about, and you are probably just deluding yourself out of shame. That's alright. Trust me. It's perfectly natural to feel a little shame. We're talking about the entertainment value of butt monsters.
And therein lies the beauty of this film. The fundamental criteria for the worth of a film lies on whether or not it achieves its goals. Depending on how a film presents itself, on the power of its basic premise, a viewer approaches (or should approach) the experience with certain base-line expectations. When a movie's immediate goal is to tell a story about a butt monster, that automatically lowers expectations. No right-thinking viewer is going into this thinking they're going to get the Citizen Kane of butt monster films.
Given these lowered expectations, how fun it is when the movie lives up to them and more! What a nice surprise that the movie isn't jokey in a hokey, predictable way. (Again, for a movie about butt monsters.) What a delight to see the very dedicated and very sincere performances from pretty much everyone in the cast. My hat is off to Ken Marino, who plays our lead, the man who is the grievous host for the butt monster. He went for every grunt, moan, and scream like he was scrabbling for an Oscar, and no, I am not being sarcastic.Read more ›
This film is definitely a love-hate affair with me; while the film is mainly meant to be viewed as a black comedy and not as a horror film, to be completely honest I find the majority of the comedy in this film to be a little too senseless to the point where a lot of it comes off as trying too hard, especially in the first 20 minutes. The acting can seem over-the-top to the point where it is painful and some of the facial expressions, especially on the part of Ken, do seem forced. However, as soon as Milo the ass demon is introduced it all seems to fall more in place; every scene containing Milo seems to be a shining moment and with him comes a couple interesting conventions, such as the interesting handheld POV aspects as he sniffs out his victims. The death scenes are fulfilling and actually pretty original and there's more than enough here to make up for the monotony the films starts off with. And while we're on the topic of the demon, I never thought I'd ever call an ass demon "cute" until now.Read more ›
You might expect a movie with this type of plot to be full of bad one-liners and poop jokes. Surprisingly, it’s not. The production team handles this concept very delicately and instead finds humor everywhere else. I am very impressed with how they did this, and the end result has to be seen to believed.
BAD MILO! is shot very well and features some inventive camerawork to capture the “ins and outs” of Milo’s experience. His host, Duncan, obviously endures a bit of uncomfortableness, but that’s to be expected given Milo’s living arrangements. The film is even shot on a RED camera, which makes the vivid picture even more extraordinary.
The special effects are excellent. The production crew uses practical effects for Milo, which makes this a more than noteworthy creature-feature. Too many flicks today rely on CG, which lessens the believability factor of a monster. Not so, here; thanks to realistic effects, Milo is slick and creepy…but with a hint of a sick cuteness factor as well.
The acting in BAD MILO! is also very good, but the story itself is what really wins the prize for me. Inventive and original, this is one of those films that only comes along once in a great while.Read more ›

It would help a lot if the writers had given this B-movie horror spoof more than one joke to repeat endlessly. It gets pretty tedious. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Jack Ryan

So ridiculous. A creature (sub-conscious) that crawls in and out of his rear end.Published 9 months ago by J C
Worth a rental or maybe a $6 purchase. Could have used better comedy. Acting was good, writing wasn't great. Milo reminds me of the baby from Dinosaurs.Published 9 months ago by The Machine
