''May'' is a 2002 horror movie about a lonely young woman (played by Creator/AngelaBettis) and her efforts to develop some sort of meaningful connection with another human being. This is somewhat complicated by how [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], [[NoSocialSkills socially awkward]], and just plain weird she is. As each attempt fails, the already unstable May starts [[SanitySlippage going further and further down the rabbit hole]]...

* OddCouple: From the brief glimpse we see of them, May's parents seem totally mismatched. Her father seem like a blue-collar worker and seems to be more laid back and accepting of his daughter. His wife, who also happens to be way out of his league, is a lot more domineering and obsessive about perfecting her flaws, [[spoiler: leading to many unforseeable issues down the road]].
