North American rights to Jacob Vaughan’s horror comedy Milo went to Magnet Releasing before SXSW officially closed last weekend, marking another genre-leaning sale out of Austin, reports Deadline.

Ken Marino stars in the Duplass Bros.-produced pic as a man who has a demon living in his colon that attacks those around him when he’s anxious. Gillian Jacobs, Patrick Warburton, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, and Peter Stormare co-star.

The film centers on a man (Marino) 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.

Magnet is targeting a release later this year.

    Love that it’s going for a Basket Case-esque “Body Horror” approach. It sounds similar to a short story I wrote called “My Little Monster”, which was about this young guy heading to college, who’s parasitic twin emerges from him and mutilates every girl he’s attracted to(which was inpsired by, not only Basket Case, but the Humbug X-Files episode and one crazy ass dream I had of me having my evil twin’s brother’s head on my back, and him possessing full control over me and making me go on a cannibalistic killing spree).
