Young misfit May (Angela Bettis) endured a difficult childhood because of her lazy eye. And though contact lenses have helped May adjust as a young adult, her deep-seated awkwardness remains a problem. Adam (Jeremy Sisto), a young man obsessed with fixing wrecked cars, takes a shine to May’s oddball ways. But May’s strangeness ultimately drives him away, leaving her open to the advances of her co-worker Polly (Anna Faris). When Polly dumps her too, May’s emotional instability turns violent.
“Angela Bettis deserves every bit of praise for her performance as May Canady. It’s a devastatingly raw performance.” (Horror Queens Podcast)
“Unfolds with the creepy elegance and carefully calibrated precision of a Dario Argento horror film.” (Los Angeles Times)
“Lowdown genre fun, a film that nearly makes up in slacker wit and high-spirited gore what it lacks in budget and elegance.” (Boston Globe)
“A horror film and something more and deeper, something disturbing and oddly moving.” (Roger Ebert)
