May (2002)

4 / 5

Very entertaining twist on the Frankenstein story...kind of. See May is a rather unfortunately strange and withdrawn girl and can't seem to make any friends or boyfriends. She starts to finally meet a nice boy who kind of takes her for a ride, but she snaps. She starts killing and taking parts of folks to make her perfect friend to love her. It's warped and sad and well you can't help but empathize with the killer and the victims which is sort of a nice twist. It's very well done, and the comedy elements keep this light enough that most should enjoy despite how strange it actually is. Recommended highly for most!
