Bad Milo and One Rad Movie Poster!

6 of 6 viewers "Liked" "Bad Milo" (2013, USA)
Here's what the citizens of the Overlook Theatre had to say:

Book Wyrm - "I love movies with puppet like creatures so this was right up my ally. Milo is endearing even though he likes killing people and I really want him on a shirt." - 5 Stars

The Impostor - "A great old school "creature" horror/comedy and a great throwback to Gremlins and Critters yet more adult. Bad Milo is a cult classic in the making." - 4 Stars

The Berkeley Blazer - "Who knew a malevolent ass-monster and id-manifestation could be so cute and cuddly? Peals of tearful laughter were regularly given by this poignant comedy drama about one man coming to grips with who he really is and the dark secret that literally lurks (and burps) within him." - 3 1/2 Stars

The Great Hornito - Spoiler - "This movie reminded me of some eighties movies that I really liked. It had the feeling of Gremlins, Goonies, and Beetle Juice. Milo is basically a hairless Gizmo that lives in his masters butt and only comes out to murder people that his master has some kind of conflict with." - 4 Stars

Huntress - "This felt like a modern day Basket Case but with a much cuter critter." - 5 Stars

Lord Battle - "It's awesome when a films inception is rooted so deeply in the genre you love, since watching it becomes a familiar exploration of nostalgia, if that makes sense. Basically Bad Milo is just F'n rad." - 4 1/2 Stars

The Overlook Theatre Final Rating*
"Bad Milo" is a throwback film to the fun loving decade of the 80's, obviously made by fans of genre. I for one think Milo gives Gizmo a run for his money in the cuteness department but is more impressive because he actually looks like a little demon monster.

Learning to deal with your problems is the underlined theme of the movie, which must seem very obvious after reading the synopsis but the film actually plays this idea out in a tremendously entertaining fashion. The rest of the film is 3/4 dark comedy and 1/4 cute horror, it's really something you just have to see for yourself. I feel like the poster I used for the review pretty much sums up the feel of the movie perfectly, so what are you waiting for, go check it out!

*Based on the star ratings turned in by character reviewers, others viewed and got to "Dislike" or "Like" but that does not effect the rating.
