I will sadly admit that this is the first time we have reported anything on director Jacob Vaughan’s horror comedy, Milo, so even though the news does not really affect us here in the UK, I feel this film deserves a mention.
The idea of the film sounds hilarious, and while no trailer has yet been released, the new official synopsis should wet your appetite for a fun filled horror comedy that really does sound terrific. Magnet Releasing acquired North American rights to the film at the recent SXSW Festival, and upon making the deal, an official synopsis made its way on-line.
There’s no release date announced yet, but now that the deal has been made, hopefully a trailer will arrive shortly.
Jacob Vaughan directs and co-writes with Benjamin Hayes. The cast includes Patrick Warburton, Nick Jaine, Peter Stormare, Gillian Jacobs, Ken Marino and Stephen Root.
Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife (Gillian Jacobs), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction. Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.
