Shock Video: Talkin’ With Gillian Jacobs and Ken Marino from Bad Milo
It’s not often that I enter a room and have one of my interviewees refer to titles like Pumpkinhead, Basket Case and Luther the Geek, but that’s exactly what Ken Marino did. The actor was out promoting Bad Milo, the horror-comedy now available on VOD, with co-star Gillian Jacobs (Community) last week and we had a chance to speak to the duo.  The interview turned out to be a blast as we discussed the film’s influences, the potential name of Jacobs’ “ass monster” and what it was like working with a practical creature. Bad Milo focuses on a fella (Marino) with intense stomach trouble who learns to his horror that he has a demon living in 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.  The film hits theaters October 4th.  Read our interview with director Jacob Vaughan here.

Fantasia 2013 Interview: Bad Milo’s Jacob Vaughan On Intestinal Monsters & Drawing from Real Life
In Bad Milo!, Ken Marino has a problem.  The stresses of his life and constant stomach issues manifest in the form of a pint-sized creature living inside of his intestines.  And when Ken’s complications worsen, said creature introduces itself to the world by crawling out of his ass and destroying anyone who poses a threat. The film – a ridiculous and hilarious tale – is the spawn of director and co-writer Jacob Vaughan, an assistant editor on Mark and Jay Duplass’ Cyrus and Jeff, Who Lives at Home and the editor of Black Rock.  And, thanks to his previous collaborations with the Duplass brothers, Bad Milo! was able to become a reality. Tonight, the film is going to be screening at the Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal and in our continuing coverage of the fest, we spoke to Vaughan about his creature feature debut which also stars Gillian Jacobs, Patrick Warburton, Peter Stormare and Stephen Root.

This Poster for Bad Milo is Ridiculous
Jacob Vaughan’s Bad Milo! (formerly known as simply Milo) recently got itself an official poster and it’s pretty ridiculous.  You can see a larger version inside.  Magnet is handling the distribution. Bad Milo! stars Ken Marino as Duncan, a stressed out exec whose high pressure life, including his manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), his controlling mother (Mary Kay Place), her much-younger boyfriend, his wastrel New Age dad (Stephen Root) and the expectations of his sweet wife metastasize to create a gremlin-like creature that emerges from his poop chute to wreak bloody vengeance on everything that plagues Duncan. It is Duncan’s dark ID run amok. Diagnosed and identified by a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), Milo is a problematic product of expectations. His wife Sarah (Community’s Gillian Jacobs) is gently communicating that she expects more of her office drone husband. His boss Phil secretly looking for a stooge to cover his own dirty dealings – offers a “promotion” that involves being a corporate hatchet-man. And the malevolent Milo makes no distinction between the guilty and the innocent when it comes to dealing with Duncan’s plagues of conscience.
