Movie Info

Young misfit May (Angela Bettis) endured a difficult childhood because of her lazy eye. And though contact lenses have helped May adjust as a young adult, her deep-seated awkwardness remains a problem. Adam (Jeremy Sisto), a young man obsessed with fixing wrecked cars, takes a shine to May's oddball ways. But May's strangeness ultimately drives him away, leaving her open to the advances of her co-worker Polly (Anna Faris). When Polly dumps her too, May's emotional instability turns violent.

    A wonderfully dark and playful horror flick, May lives in the same weird vein as American Mary and Ginger Snaps, two other woman-lead wonders of the horror genre that focus primarily on femininity and exposing a certain mythos that connects vanity, self-love and loathing, sex, death and gore. Certainly smarter and more self-aware than it would like to admit, May is worth a watch or two. It isn't necessarily scary, but it leaves a mark.

    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.

    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.

    May is one of the most twisted movies you're going to find. It's a wonderfully done movie about a girl who didn't just go past the breaking point, she lived there all her life. Angela Bettis created a uniquely twisted character, who I couldn't help but like. The rest of the cast is just as good. Sisto is a standard good actor in whatever he does, and this is the first movie Anna Faris showed she was more than just a Scary Movie actress. May unfolds at a methodical pace, but the happenings are put together to give the film a quiet intensity. May is a very obvious movie, which could be considered its only flaw, if you want to consider it that. I can't say enough how great a job Bettis did. I have no doubt it still would have been an OK movie, at the very least, but Bettis knocked it out of the park. I seriously couldn't recommend May to everyone, but this is a wonderfully twisted horror movie, with way more build than slashing, but is worth every second.
