May is possibly one of the strangest and most unconventional horrors I've seen to date. The story, focuses on a young woman, May, a slightly naive sociopathic outcast who has always strived for acceptance and friendship, but remained lonely throughout her life.
Working as nurse and surgical assistant at a vetenary hospital, making her own clothes, and talking to her doll - which she deems her "best friend" - has always filled up all of her time.
And then she comes across Adam, a good-looking mechanic with the most beautiful hands she's ever seen. Desperate to be with him, she starts stalking him every chance she can get to try and get him to notice her. At the same time, a girl at work seems very smitten with her
While this sounds like the stuff of romantic comedies, and plays very much like a drama throughout the first half of the movie, it all becomes very dark, serious and somewhat creepy quite quickly.
May is a very sweet and misunderstood girl with some weird fascinations, but she is quickly beginning to verge on the edge of her sanity, and she may take her mothers advice that "if you can't find a friend, make one", far too seriously.
Definately a must for fans of the extreme and unconventional horror genres. This isn't your standard predictable teen slasher, this is something completely different!
