Life is stress. Either you learn to manage it or it manifests into an intestinal gremlin hellbent on exacting revenge. Or at least that’s the kicker plotpoint of Bad Milo!, a dark comedy starring Ken Marino (Party Down, The State, Wet Hot American Summer) that screens at the Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd.) this weekend. The film is rated R for “bloody comedic horror violence,” which are four words made much more fabulous when strung together as a warning, and shows Duncan (Marino) as a man on the edge. Tormented by his boss and frustrated by his parents, Duncan becomes overcome with gastrointestinal anguish. Ulcer? Nope. Cancer? Nuh-uh. Kidney stones? Wouldn’t that be nice, but sadly, no. The problem is that darn demon occupying his colon. The Hyde-like counterpart crawls out to even Duncan’s scores whether he gives the go-ahead or not. Join in the campy hellshow at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, or pop in sooner on Friday or Saturday for earlier weekend screenings. Tickets cost $9.50. Visit thetexastheatre.com for showtimes.
