[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.

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:
