May. Weird movie. Weird effing movie. I can't remember adding this to my netflix Queue, but it must have been a long time ago. I've been watching it creep up my Q for a while, and lacking 6 other movies I'm dying to see, it snuck in to my house.

A strange, indy horror flick, May grabs you from the beginning. After a strange, socially isolated childhood, May grows up to be quite unique. I know I don't usually do plot synopses but I'll make an exception for this movie, roughly this is how it goes :

Good weird
Really weird
Bad weird
Kind of hot
Bad weird
Um... what???

Angela Bettis is terrific in the lead role, and the director with a cool name(Lucky McKee) crafts well. Jeremy Sisto feels natural as the neighborhood hunk, and Anna Faris is a good weird hot lesbian. While it goes beyond bizarre at the end, I think it's worth watching(if you can take some gore). It's certainly different, and you can't say that about a lot of movies these days.
