October 29: Bad Milo!

movie reviews

Duncan’s life is stressful. His wife wants babies, his mother wants grandchildren, and his boss wants him to lay off massive numbers of employees even though he works in accounting. All of these headaches result in the worst case of stress-induced IBS that anyone ever experienced. In an effort to pacify his family and get some control of his issues, Duncan starts seeing a therapist whose unorthodox, hippy treatment reveals that the man has a pint-sized demon living in his colon.

Milo is great, primarily because you never really know whether he’s cute or repulsive. He looks like a little Michelin Man but has teeth like a Great White. Give it a watch and you can decide for yourself.

October 26: Night of the Demons

movie reviews

This is what happens when you try to summon a demon at your Halloween party.

What can I say? It’s a classic. If it’s not already in your Halloween rotation, it should be. I love the way this movie was approached. It feels so much like the original Evil Dead, but has a flavor distinctly its own. The effects are beautiful and the camera work is downright interesting (which is something I don’t typically notice). If you’re into severed arms as much as I am, you’ll dig it.
