Lucky McKee’s Kindred Spirits is somewhat of a companion piece to the director’s stunning 2002 debut, May, which is one of the best horror films of the 2000s. Both track the
deterioration of a disturbed, wounded character whose shunning, or perceived shunning, leads to disaster. The new film never reaches the highs (or lows) of May, but it has an entrancing
quality that’s never dull.
