What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Bad Milo is a horror/comedy hybrid about a man who has a creature living inside his anus; when he's stressed, the creature comes out and kills people. (Thankfully, the movie doesn't actually show the creature coming and going from its "home," but it clearly causes the man pain, and there are lots of gross noises associated with the process.) Expect lots of gory violence, with spraying blood and body parts bitten off (sometimes off screen), as well as very heavy sexual innuendo, including suggested oral sex and masturbation, as well as a "bondage dungeon." Language is likewise heavy, with many uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "ass." One character is shown to be a regular pot smoker. The shock factor of this movie may entice some teen viewers, but for others it will just be too gross.
  • Families can talk about Bad Milo's bloody violence. Was it scary, or did it make you laugh? What's the difference? What do you think the filmmakers' intent was?
  • What's the appeal of a horror/comedy like this one? Is it fun to be grossed out? Why?
  • What is Duncan's relationship with his family like? Can he communicate with his mother or father? His wife? Would things improve if he could?
