[SXSW ’13 Review] Gory ‘Milo’ A Cross Between ‘Ghoulies’ and ‘Knocked Up’

Horror and comedy go together like, well, they usually don’t go together all that well. Sometimes it works, and we get a gem of a lifetime – think James Gunn’s Slither. Besides Evil Dead, I was incredibly jealous that Evan Dickson was on hand for the world premiere of Milo, a new horror comedy starring the brilliant Ken Marino as a man with intense stomach trouble who horror that he actually has a demon living inside his intestines. When he gives it permission to come out during a therapy session, the man names it Milo and tries to live a life in which he, not his demon, is in charge. Peter Stormare, Gillian Jacobs, Stephen Root and Patrick Warburton also star.

The odds seemed against Milo after the Sundance Film Festival flop Hell Baby, but thankfully Dickson has some great news:

“Milo has laughs, ideas, gore and heart to spare and it never fails to entertain,” says Dickson. “Better than you thought it would be – this Ghoulies meets Knocked Up approach works surprisingly well.

    LOL!! That is what I said in my previous comment post about MILO’s Poster with the toilet…in BD’s article page that showed the new Milo Poster. I said the poster reminded me so much of the “Ghoulies” poster with the green Ghoulie (wearing suspenders…lol) popping out of a toilet (also doing it in the movie iteslf. I did not think Milo LITERALLY was taking a cue from The Ghoulies. 🙂

    Sorry..the Green Ghoulie was topless in the first Ghoulies movie and on the poster..that was the one I meant. But the Suspender-wearing Ghoulie (same one) is in the Ghoulies II poster. LOL!
