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.

Happy Labor Day weekend, stream fans! Summer may be drawing to an official close, but there's nothing withering about the content we're highlighting for you this week. With "Passion" out in theaters today, we'd like to give Brian De Palma a high five: over forty years of filmmaking, and the director remains as polarizing as ever, continuing to delight and disappoint audiences with his unique style and scandalous content. Check out one of his earlier films below, followed by an homage to "Closed Circuit" director John Crowley with the inclusion of his feature debut. Also, a pre-theatrical release of a horror-comedy with the most disgustingly awesome villain we've ever heard of, a long-forgotten comedy with Tim Robbins and John Cusack, and a straight-to-DVD release of The Rock and Liam Hemsworth's latest vehicle. Okay, so maybe that last pick is a little withering. But the leaves have to fall sometime, right? And, of course, we have another treasured title from the bastion of goodness that is The Criterion Collection. Enjoy!

Bad milo
“It’s about a guy who’s stressed out and monster comes out of his ass and kills the things that are stressing him out and goes back up his ass,” Ken Marino told us about his new upcoming horror comedy, “Bad Milo” at SXSW 2013. “It’s good clean, butt fun.” Hmm, how can you go wrong there? Directed by Jacob Vaughn (an short filmmaker and assistant editor on the Duplass Brothers' "Cyrus" and "Jeff, Who Lives at Home"), “Bad Milo" co-stars Gillian Jacob (“Community”), Peter Stormare, Stephen Root, Mary Kay Place and Patrick Warburton, and it’s about exactly what Marino said it was: a monster living up a dude’s butt.

Unfortunately, when we talked to Ken Marino at SXSW earlier this week, the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign had not yet been announced, so there’s no word yet on whether Vinnie Van Lowe will return for the movie, already greenlit for this summer. What did we talk about? Marino’s gross-out monster movie – he describes it as “good butt fun” – which premiered in Austin this week.
