May: Lucky McKee film gets a UK Blu-ray release with hours of bonus features

Second Sight Films is giving Lucky McKee’s cult classic May, starring Angela Bettis, a special edition Blu-ray release in the UK

After a Sundance screening in 2002, Lucky McKee’s cult classic horror film May (watch it HERE) earned a wider release in 2003 – and to mark the twentieth anniversary of that release, Second Sight Films is giving the film a special edition Blu-ray release in the UK that is packed with hours of bonus features! The release date is July 24th and the Blu-ray can be pre-ordered at THIS LINK – but keep in mind that the Blu-ray is locked to Region B.

Written and directed by McKee, May has the following synopsis: Young misfit May 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, 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. When Polly dumps her too, May’s emotional instability turns violent.

Angela Bettis plays the title character and is joined in the cast by Jeremy Sisto, Anna Faris, Nichole Hiltz, James Duval, Ken Davitian, Kevin Gage, Merle Kennedy, Rachel David, Nora Zehetner, Will Estes, and Chandler Riley Hecht.
