Too much of a hodgepodge of borrowed ideas and uneven tone.
Part Carrie, part Frankenstein and still shlockier bits and pieces, May isn't seamless. But boy is it hard to avert one's eyes from this creature ready-made for the midnight-movie circuit.
A bizarre (and sometimes repulsive) exercise that's a little too willing to swoon in its own weird embrace.
Unfolds with the creepy elegance and carefully calibrated precision of a Dario Argento horror film.
Exactly the kind of unexpected delight one hopes for every time the lights go down.
[Bettis] has a smoldering, humorless intensity that's unnerving.
It's ultimately difficult to envision May working as anything but a short film...
Lucky McKee's pansexual patchwork carves up perfection to celebrate flaws.
A marvelous cinematic debut from director Lucky McKee...
"May" takes a cracked view of 1 Corinthians' idea of leaving childish things behind - blending the brooding of "Frankenstein" with the bleak, acrid tone of Alkaline Trio lyrics and the most frightening sing-song horror-film score since "Suspiria."
Proves that fresh new work can be done in the horror genre if the director follows his or her own shadowy muse.
Benefits from bursts of gory black humor as well as Bettis' riveting performance.
A girl with a lazy eye grows up as a social outcast with a doll as her only friend; she gets corrective lenses as a young adult and is suddenly set loose on the dating world with no social skills and a dangerously loose grip on reality. An effective, creepy character study for the first two thirds, but it takes an unfortunate turn into predictable slasher territory for the climax.
May is the story of May an odd girl who is very weird. She's never really fit in anywhere. When she meets a guy, things go well, but she starts doing stuff and he leaves. That's when the horror starts. May is the type of horror film that blends horror and drama together, the film is pretty sad and you end up feeling sorry for May. The story itself is very well written, terrifying and dramatic all rolled into one. What surprised me most about this film is it's how well crafted the story was. May is an intense film and at times you feel uneasy and startled. In a worthy note, Anna Farris gives her best (and only) performance. May is a solid Horror film that successfully combines drama and horror to create a poignant, terrifying film. Director Lucky McKee directs a solid cast that give great performances here. May is a different type of horror film, one that pushes the limits of terror and it does it very well with the lead actress Angela Bettis giving a sad, psychotic performance as the title character; she makes this film what it is. Brilliantly conceived and well-written, this is a much needed film in the genre because we have so many unoriginal films in the horror genre nowadays. It's always great to see a director doing something different, something good and original. May is a disturbing film, one that horror fans should definitely check out. This is a brilliantly directed film and showcases the talents of a director who knows how to deliver shocks to an audience. One of the best films of its kind since Brian DePalma's Carrie.
I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this one, but I may be a little freaked out.
Here we have a girl who lives in her own world that she's made in every sense of the word.
Something on it's own, unique trip to a dark place within a darker mind; and I say alright.
Again this movie probably would have been better if I had not heard so much hype about it. It had an original story line and the acting was not terrible, but still, I was expecting to get suckerpunched and I kind of left feeling like someone had just flicked my nose.
