Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be reviewing the movie, “Becky”, which stars the young talented actress Lulu Wilson and comedians Kevin James and Joel McHale. When I saw the preview/trailer I was excited to watch this! I’ve been saying Lulu would be the perfect final girl and it finally came true! This is not your typical horror. More of an action with a mix of horror elements. Lulu is a rising star to watch since Ouija, Annabelle and The Haunting of Hill House. She kills her role each time and this film was no different! The movie starts with Becky going on a trip to the lake with her dad. Right from the start you feel this tension between them. We find out Becky has lost her mother recently to cancer (an illness not sure if they mention its cancer). Her father has now started dating another woman with a kid and it has only been a year (if I am remembering correctly). It turns out her dad brought his new GF to the lake house with her kid and Becky is upset that her dad has moved on so fast.
Lulu does a great job of showing Becky’s resentment towards her dad and all the anger she is holding in. At the same time this is going on Kevin James character that happens to be a Nazi has just escaped prison with a group of friends. They head towards the lake house where Becky is since they hid something in the basement. Pretty much they hold Becky’s dad, GF and GF’s son hostage. Becky was hiding out in a treehouse since she got upset with her dad. Becky ends up kicking ass and using her rage and anger to defeat the bad guys. A few gory scenes. Definitely worth the watch. I really enjoyed it. Kevin James as a bad guy was a bit odd, but he did okay. Go watch it you won’t regret it!
