May (2002)

Lucky McKee’s creepy debut is often cited as one of the 21st century’s finest horror films.

Film details


Like the illegitimate lovechild of Carrie White and Frankenstein’s monster, Lucky McKee’s masterful debut tells the story of a strange young woman and her attempts to make a meaningful connection. Featuring a revelatory performance from Angela Bettis as the titular anti-heroine, May is an imaginative blend of creeping dread and heartbreaking pathos.
