Pros: The message is pretty strong, Angela Bettis plays a great May

Cons: May be to gruesome, weird for some.

The Bottom Line: A weird, but powerful film. Not for light-of-stomach.

**** out of ****     There will never really be a slasher to save such a sub-genre. I don't like to think that any film deserves that much recognition, and plus, I don't even like the horror sub-genre of "the slasher film" that much, and for good reason.

I'm a fan and an admirer of horror cinema for many reasons, and whenever …

May is not normal. At first, you think there is a possibility that she could be misunderstood, but May is definitely not normal. She gives a whole new meaning to the word 'Freak'. May grows up being different, wearing an eye patch because of a lazy eye. Mommy and Daddy give her a doll to be her friend, a doll that is one of those 'look but don't touch' dolls. If you can't meet friends, then make one. May matures, and we pick up with her as she is working for a Veterinarian as his assistant. She …
