Lucky McKee’s ‘May’ ‘a facetiously witty slasher’ gets Limited Edition Blu-ray and Standard release on 24th July 2023

‘A facetiously witty slasher film that keeps its forked tongue firmly in its gashed cheek’

The New York Times

‘Quirky tragicomedy… body horror is offset by high degree of camp… the broadly drawn characterisation is anchored in one woman’s psychotic legacy’

Anton Bitel

‘Fascinatingly weird… brought to life with a wonderful score and an overall creepy vision that builds tension while grossing us out in equal measure. A little black humour and a killer

female lead’ Wonderfully Weird and Horrifying

Make a date with May – for an unforgettable, uncomfortable, weird and wild experience. Lucky McKee’s wickedly wry body horror featuring outstanding performances, stunning cinematography and a stellar soundtrack,  is back for a new release this July. Second Sight Films has it all sewn up with a brand-new Limited Edition and Standard Edition Blu-ray version, both complete with a fantastic slew of special features.

Meet May Dove Candy, the socially awkward veterinary assistant, who was bullied as a child for her lazy eye and has developed an obsession with perfection. Desperate for connection, May struggles to make friends and is desperately searching for a perfect boyfriend.

Then she meets Adam, the boy with the flawless hands… could he be the one? But the path of love never runs smoothly, especially with May’s inability to connect with people. As her dream of perfection unravels, she becomes increasingly detached from reality and descends into the depths of depravity.

The brand-new Limited Edition is set for release on 24 July and is presented in a stunning box with new artwork by Bella Grace, alongside a 70 page book, with new essays. Both editions come complete with a host of brilliant extras including new audio commentaries and new interviews with the stars, director, composer and editors and much more, see full details below.
