Lucky McKee's May was a little-seen horror film that was greatly admired by genre enthusiasts. The film comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by McKee and members of the cast. They have a very good time sharing their experiences of making the movie, and teasing leading actor Jeremy Sisto (who is not there with them). The director and some of the production crew have recorded a second commentary. They provide more filmmaking insights than the actors, but are occasionally less entertaining. The internet trailer for the film rounds out this solid release from Lion's Gate that should help the film find a wider audience than it did in theaters.

    A young social outcast goes to great measures to find the perfect friend in this debut horror feature from director Lucky McKee. Set apart from her peers as a child due to her lazy eye, May's only friend and confidant was a delicate doll encased in glass. Though as a young adult May has learned to control her lazy eye with glasses and contacts, her introverted tendencies always seem to hinder her search for the perfect friend. Walking down the street one day, May happens across a young man tenderly caressing the damage of a wrecked car and falls in love with his seemingly perfect hands. As May and Adam (Jeremy Sisto) begin to spend more time together, the quirky couple seem to have much in common, and May believes that she might have finally happened across the perfect boy. Her deep-rooted psychological problems slowly surface, however, and Adam is gradually driven away, leaving the vulnerable May in the company of amorous co-worker Polly (Anna Faris). It soon becomes obvious to May that, though various acquaintances seem to have perfect traits, they never add up to a perfect whole -- leading the creative and demented young girl to her own unique method of creating the perfect friend. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      An Intense Drama With a Drop of Fear


      “MAY” is a story about a young woman who has never had any relationships with other humans. When May tries to befriend a young man it quickly becomes apparent that her social skills are extremely poor. When May’s NEW FRIEND dumps her she starts to louse touch with realty. Then a female coworker of May’s seduces her into another dead end relationship. When things seem like they could not get any worse May’s porcelain doll (that was her only friend from her 5th birthday to the present time) is smashed to splinters. With no one to call a friend, May goes on a rampage of killing people. She uses their body parts to make a human friend.
