I need more Parts....

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 sees a young man who inspires her to get contact lenses and become a bit more flirtatious, after falling in love with his hands. His beautiful hands.

May can always see the best in people, though they don't seem to see her very well at all. Betrayed by the two people who claimed to like her and her odd ways, May finally decides Mommy was right. It's time to make a new friend. Someone who will understand her.

Not a blatant blood-splatter film but nonetheless a titillating journey through the sicker side of need. There are definitely some good 'Parts' in this movie; in particular the dead kitty and the Lysol spray (he-he), plus pretty decent performances by Angela Bettis and Anna Faris (Scary Movie I & II). Creepy and a bit disturbing, this is a great movie for a first time date with that little oddball you've been meaning to ask out on a date. Enjoy!

Lucky McKee certainly created a neo-classic of the weird and wonderful here, didn't he? Sort of a modern day twist on the Frankenstein story. Its somewhere on my list of favorites.

**** 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. There are slasher films that I love ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Halloween") and then there are those that I find tasteless and boring ("Friday the 13th"). I'm a fan and an admirer of horror cinema for many reasons, and whenever …

As a young girl, May's severe lazy eye made her shy and socially acceptable as a target for persecution. Her demanding and obsessive mother twisted that beginning into something else entirely. The bizarre glass encased doll she gives to her troubled girl becomes May's only friend, and long after mother is gone, the doll continues to be May's truest confidante.      As an adult, May now works in a third rate veterinary office where her interests in things like sewing …

Angela Bettis is one of the more underrated actresses in Hollywood or Indie cinema for that matter but we can't hold it against her. One look at her film resume & we can be restfully assured she is every bit an actress although her name rarely comes up in conversation amongst moviephiles as often as it should. Perhaps she is yet to secure the role which will not only define her as a serious actress & tap into unknown dimensions we've yet to experience. I do have faith she will one day nab …

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.
