Becky

Critics Consensus

Becky isn't quite able to sustain enough intensity to fully take advantage of its premise, though it serves up entertainingly nasty thrills for genre fans.

  • ...it's Becky who channels her teen angst into exceedingly clever and increasingly cruel ways to fight back. Watching Wilson doing so from the start and with a bit of a smirk is wholly compelling.

  • Stunt casting Kevin James as a neo-Nazi falls flat like everything else in this ultra-violent, ultra-stupid smarm-bomb that deserves to take a few lumps before shuffling off to the digital boneyard.

  • To say that Becky is the reason to watch Becky is, perhaps, to state the obvious.

Audience Reviews for Becky

  • Jun 06, 2020
    It's always a nice surprise when a movie looks a little too campy for its own good and therefore loses my interest in wanting to watch it. Then again, I still like to give most movies a shot, and with Becky, I'm very glad that I did. After seeing advertisements for it, it just seemed like a film that would go straight to digital or even DVD back in the day, and while that's all it's been given the chance to do anyways, it deserves far more credit than a throwaway film like that. Will Becky be winning any awards? Definitely not, but it's an absolute blast to watch if you're a fan of this genre. If you're not into gore and violence, then I wouldn't recommend this one, but if you're up for that kind of thing, here's why Becky is one of the most enjoyable on-demand films of 2020 so far.  After the loss of her mother, Becky and her father travel to their lakehouse with his new girlfriend and her son. Out of nowhere, intruders come into their home, seemingly calm, looking for a key. Within just ten minutes, all hell breaks loose and Becky is now on a mission to take them all out. This film is pretty much if a filmmaker who knew how to really make a gore-fest tried to replicate Home Alone in the woods. The story alone is a little by the numbers, but it works really well in context with the rest of the movie.  Through films like Annabelle: Creation or Netflix's series The Haunting of Hill House, Lulu Wilson has been proving that she's easily one of the best young actresses working today. Her commitment to every roll always leaps off the screen and this film was no exception. On top of that, and probably the most surprising element to this movie was the fact that Kevin James plays the leader of these intruders and this is the first time I've ever seen him portray a villain, let alone a serious role, and he was really, really solid. His subtle work here was kind of great and I never thought I'd say this, but I want to see him do a lot more drama now. If he switches genres and never goes back to comedy, I don't think that would be such a bad thing.  Now, this may be the area that some viewers will be turned off by this movie, but I believe it's probably the most impressive aspect. As the movie progresses, a lot more gore and death begins to occur, and while that kind of thing is absolutely not for everyone, from a filmmaking perspective, I was blown away in certain instances. The practical effects of the gore itself were really well done. There's also a decent amount of shocking and cringeworthy (in a good way) moments. If you're up for that and find that to be an enjoyable element if done in a fun or unique way, then this movie is probably right up your ally.  Overall, Becky is a far better movie than I was expecting it to be. It takes itself seriously and has a few earned, dramatic moments, but it also knows when to loosen up and have some campy fun. It's not exactly a horror movie, but a nice little revenge story with plenty of very well-done gore effects and two great central performances was enough to keep me on board. It's really not a lot better than calling it a great B-Movie, but that was enough for me for this one. Directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion have made an exciting and engaging little thriller that works from start to finish. Definitely recommend this one.
