Look, you’re just going to have to come to terms with the fact that “Bad Milo!” is about a man who has a monster that grows out of his ass and kills people. If you’re not willing to get onboard with that premise, this isn’t a movie that’s going to sway your initial feelings. And that’s okay: movies aren’t meant to be for everyone, as much as contemporary demographics might beg. They used to make genre films that occupied a very specific, very weird part of the video store where your mother, your teachers, and even your philistine babysitter dare not venture. “Bad Milo!” to its credit, would have been one of them.

While 1980's Oscar-winning directorial debut "Ordinary People" remains a potent and emotional picture, and 1994's "Quiz Show" is a rare and rich drama, Robert Redford's output behind the camera over the last decade or so can be characterised mostly by two words -- 'sleep aid.' None of "The Legend of Bagger Vance," "Lions for Lambs" or "The Conspirator" had much of anything interesting to them, bar some solid, if unexceptional performances.

Stephen Root rules. Probably best known as Milton Waddams in "Office Space" the character actor moves effortlessly from comedy to drama to horror and is constantly working on a new project. Hell, just look at the wide variety of films he's had this year alone: "Red State," "Cedar Rapids," "Everything Must Go," voicing a part in "Rango," popping up in "Justified" and he's got "J. Edgar" around the corner. Not bad. He was also in Robert Redford's dusty musty drama "The Conspirator" earlier this year and he's impressed the Sundance veteran enough that he wants to work with him again.
