There was no moment when I was scared by this thing.
June 3, 2003
It comes off like the insolent posing of a college smart-aleck who gets off on shocking the fuddy-duddies.

McKee's patchwork horror is neither subversively clever nor an imaginatively engineered shock-and-surprise ride. He should have spent his time building a better psycho.

Ironically, the stretch marks are what you notice most.
June 5, 2003
It is alternately ridiculous, gruesome, unlikely and stupefying.

Led by Ms. Bettis's discreetly campy May, the performances are a cut or two above what you would find in the average slasher film. But in the end that's all it is.

[McKee's] going to need better stories than this.
June 27, 2003
A bizarre (and sometimes repulsive) exercise that's a little too willing to swoon in its own weird embrace.

February 7, 2003
No redeeming qualities whatsoever and incredibly tough to sit through, this blows.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10

Tagline should be, 'If you can't find a really bad Frankenstein rip-off, make something like this.'

It's ultimately difficult to envision May working as anything but a short film...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 25, 2003
Director Lucky McKee has a knack for discomfiting material involving contact lenses and animal hospitals, but such moments are increasingly rare as he stretches his material.

We never connect with and/or care about the character.

January 27, 2003
Tone-deaf and structurally flaccid, 'May' is little more than a Troma movie with unrealized pretensions...In short, 'May' not.

June 5, 2003
McKee's darkly clever notion that tragic hipsters doing their second-hand damnedest to be weird are thoroughly unprepared to handle someone who truly is weird gets bogged down in a listless narrative and one-dimensional characterizations.

June 5, 2003
While the film does display a certain understated style, not to mention a fair amount of witty black humor, it's ultimately undone by its familiar themes ... and a lengthy, slow-paced buildup that doesn't result in a particularly satisfying payoff.
June 6, 2003
Novice director Lucky McKee wrote the first draft of this labored horror flick while he was in school, and for a student film, it's not bad. But it's not ready for the big time.

The idea of this strange little girl growing into a woman obsessed with body parts is intriguing, but McKee hasn't a clue what to do with her actors.
July 11, 2003
Too much of a hodgepodge of borrowed ideas and uneven tone.
