Anya, his fiancé, see's this as an opportunity to finally force Emmett to deal with his trauma because she believes it is preventing him from being the partner she needs. So she convinces him to take mushrooms to get him to let go. But something strange happens while they're tripping: she starts behaving like his mother. The next morning he wakes up sober, but she still won't drop the act... Anya loves playing games -- is this her taking it too far? Or did his mother's spirit somehow possess her?

      Ally Moore J Not a bad movie. This is one of those under-the-radar movies that has to be seen by those who are curious. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Adam Scott M It is a mis-labeled MASTERPIECE. If you are intelligent, have an open mind, & have an adequate ability to sustain focus & patience... Please do yourself the favor of taking this in. I avidly watch movies every night & this is an All Time Favorite. Like: Woah... WOW. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/24 Full Review Lameeka M This movie very much cringe and tap more into psychology instead of giving a good plot and ending to the movie . To sum it up the deceased mother possesses her son girlfriend after they eat shrooms and play psychology games on him , for his girlfriend to come to her senses and act like herself again just sucks waste of time . however no ending but them back loving each other and the mother coming back as a bug 🤦🏽‍♀️ Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review Sanjin A Interesting play on trauma in an eerie setting. Definitely worth the watch. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/22/23 Full Review julie s Confusing from the start, wouldn't recommend Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 08/19/23 Full Review Stoner J Absolutely terrible. I read the premise and it sounded dope… not so. The lack of dialogue when it's needed, the scenes that either cut too soon hector finishing or coming in too late and you're wondering like what the hell happened. The whole movie is like that, made zero sense whatsoever and the ending was just as bad as the rest of the movie… stupid. Do not waster your money on this, it's not scary, not suspenseful and is confusing from start to finish. It's ridiculous Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Leslie Felperin Guardian Vannicelli doesn’t quite pull everything together in the last act, but there’s an immense amount of craft on display as well as some terrific acting from the two leads who play off one another so well. Rated: 4/5 Aug 15, 2023 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times It’s a handsome-looking ghost story, about a man who was haunted by his mother even when she alive. Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Jared Mobarak Hey, Have You Seen ...? Because the scariest part of what's happening isn't that they might lose themselves to that dread. It's that they will recognize who it is they are becoming is who they actually need to be. Rated: 7/10 Sep 22, 2023 Full Review Rebecca Johnson Film Focus Online A slow burn with great performances and an intriguing premise, Mother, May I? lacks the scare factor that horror hounds may crave, but will undeniably impress with it's script. Rated: 3/5 Aug 23, 2023 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …a demanding, but rewarding psychodrama that plays with some traditional horror ideas, but elevates itself by going for something more restrained… Rated: 4/5 Aug 21, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Suspense over childhood trauma becomes mind-boggling.
