Bad Milo Plot Synopsis:

Duncan is an average guy who works at an average office job. But he starts to get pains in his stomach whenever he feels stressed out. Things get worse every time he tries to just hide his stress, by burying it inside. It all comes to a head when that "stress" is turned in to an actual little beast that exits his body via his butt and takes revenge on the things that stress him out. But it soon starts to threaten the one thing he loves, his wife.

Bad Milo (2013) Review

Bad Milo is a well done original movie. Duncan (Ken Marino) did a great job playing his role in Bad Milo. Milo in this movie reminds me of “Troll” because of its face features and eyes. Bad Milo contained humor, blood, everyday stresses of a married man, and a little beast living inside of a man which feels his stress and kills everyone he does not like. It was surprisingly strange to me to see where Milo exits Ben’s body and reenters from. What was even more strange was seeing the psychiatrist just sitting and standing there witnessing everything. The psychiatrist advises Duncan to stay calm and not to stress because then Milo will kill. It was hard for Duncan not to be stressed because he has a manipulative boss, a mother who nags him to have kids, a new dad that appears to be younger than him and a father who he does not have a relationship with.

At first, Milo appeared as a disgusting creature in this movie but my feelings changed toward him during the movie where I felt emotions for him - guess he grew on me :-). I understood why Milo killed all those people but the most funny killing was of the fertility doctor. Milo attacked the doctor and bit off his prize possession, swallowed it and then killed him.

With all that said, I did find the movie to be inconsistent. Milo and Duncan were supposed to be connected and feel each others pain but at the end of the movie, it did not appear that way. Duncan was walking and carrying Milo after chopping his limbs off which was not supposed to be if the movie was consistent. Bad Milo had inconsistency issues but it was a great and enjoyable movie overall. I will watch it again.
