What do legendary directors John Huston and Sam Peckinpah, Poseidon Adventure actress Shelley Winters, Lance Henriksen, a “cosmic Christ figure,” a demonic eight year old girl, and the fate of the universe have in common? They all feature in the obscure 1979 sci-fi-horror film The Visitor, which Drafthouse Films has announced it will rerelease in remastered form this Halloween weekend (a VOD/digital and home entertainment release will follow in January of next year.)

In the new comedy-horror film Bad Milo! Gillian Jacobs plays the wife of a stressed-out white collar drone (Ken Marino) who discovers he has a demon living in his butt. Yes, you read that right — she spells her first name with a “g.” (Ha! But, seriously, that is who she plays in the film.)
So, what was the point in the Bad Milo! shoot when the Community star most thought, “I bet Dame Judi Dench has never had to do this”? “Throwing dildos at an ass-demon puppet,” laughs Jacobs. “And we shot in a basement of a church, which just added a whole other level of wrong.”
Directed and cowritten by first-time filmmaker Jacob Vaughan, Bad MIlo! is released today in select cinemas and is also available to view via iTunes and VOD. In addition to Jacobs and Marino, the movie stars Patrick Warburton, Steve Zissis, Mary Kay Place, Stephen Root, Kumail Nanjiani, and Big Lebowski nihilist Peter Stormare.
Below, Jacobs talks more about Bad MIlo! while gamely ignoring the egregious amount of times your writer uses the phrase “butt-demon” in the course of our conversation

Last February, Inside Movies shocked the known world by revealing that the trailer for Big Ass Spider! featured a big ass spider. Well, folks, hold on to your hats.

Jonathan Glazer’s sci-fi thriller Under the Skin, which was picked up by A24 Films at this month’s Toronto Film Festival, stars Scarlett Johansson as a human-eating alien who specializes (not surprisingly) in seduction.
The trailer for the film shows Johansson put on her red lipstick and pick up what we have to assume is one of her victims. But what follows isn’t as easy to decipher. As all dialogue fades out about halfway through the trailer, we watch as things seem to spin out of control. See what you can make out of the trailer for Under the Skin, Glazer’s first film since 2004′s Birth: READ FULL STORY
Is that a space zombie harassing Ray Donovan in the international trailer for the new science fiction movie, The Last Days on Mars? Honestly, we haven’t a clue (although it looks like that’s the case). To find out for sure, horror fans will have to wait until October 31, when the debut movie from director Ruairi Robinson will be available on VOD, or December 6, the date it debuts in cinemas
But why not make your own educated guess after checking out the clip below? READ FULL STORY
From the Transformers movies to The World’s End to Frances Ha (probably), you can hardly move these days without seeing films about killer robots. But only the World War II-set Frankenstein’s Army boasts killer Zombots. This unforgettably grotesque, one-of-a-kind, found-footage horror movie stars Luke Newberry and Joshua Sasse as Russian soldiers on a mission behind German lines and Karel Roden as a crazed descendant of Baron von Frankenstein who has created an army of half-zombie, half-machine monstrosities.
The demented work of first-time filmmaker Richard Raaphorst, Frankenstein’s Army is unleashed to Blu-ray and DVD today. But the brave of heart can check out an exclusive, mayhem-filled, and strong-language-featuring clip below.

Filmmakers don’t get much more fantastic — in every sense — than Terry Gilliam, the agreeably bonkers auteur whose filmography includes Time Bandits, Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. So it seems appropriate Fantastic Fest has decided to close this year’s event with his new movie, The Zero Theorem. The Christoph Waltz-starring film, which concerns a reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst, will screen at the Austin, Tx.-based genre festival on September 26.
“I got a call from Mark Duplass, and he’s like, ‘Hey, Ken, do you want to be in this movie about a monster that comes out of your ass?’” Marino told EW earlier this year, just before the film’s premiere at South by Southwest. ”I was like, ‘Where do I sign up? And when’s the fitting?’”
Bad Milo! (which also stars Gillian Jacobs, Peter Stormare, and Patrick Warburton) will be available on demand from August 29 and arrives in theaters Oct. 4. But(t) you can see a red-band preview of the Jacob Vaughan-directed film below.
