Becky Is A Great Movie
The following listicle includes spoilers to the new movie Becky!
Becky Features amazing gore. There is one scene where the main villain loses an eyeball; this scene is great. The camera holds a shot of the severed eyeball resting in a kitchen sink for several seconds, adding to the horror.
The bad guys are looking for a key that they believe has meaning to their Nazi beliefs. At the end of the film, we see that the key is hanging from the title character’s neck. All I could think at the end was, “Holy Shit, the key exists!”
Kevin James is SCARY:
Do you remember the loveable goofball Doug from “King of Queens”? That loveable oaf makes a scary villain. James is ruthless in his pursuit of the mysterious key. It was a surprisingly amazing performance.
Lulu Wilson is Mind-blowing:
Lulu Wilson makes Becky someone whose pain the viewer can relate to, but whose anger will keep you up at night. In a way, Becky is a sad, lonely girl whose mom and dad have both been taken from her. But at the same time, she killed a man by decapitating him with a boat propeller. Viewers want to make this little girl a cup of hot chocolate before they run away in terror.
Bad Ass Murder Scenes:
Horror and gore go hand in hand, but Becky takes the violence to a kick-ass level. The real stand out here is when the title character sprays Kevin James with gasoline, and he catches on fire.
Good Character Development:
From the start of the movie, viewers care about the main character. This is important because empathizing with a killer is great food for thought that many horror movies often overlook. Tragically, Becky loses her mom before the film starts, and Kevin James and his goons kill her dad. This fuels her heartache and rage throughout the film. There is a touching scene where Becky finds her dad’s corpse and speaks her loving last words.
