Becky is a horror film which showcases starring actor Kevin James’ attempt at a breakout from his usual comedic genre to Dominick, the leader of a group of escaped prisoners, the kind with Swastikas tattooed on the back of their heads.
Lulu Wilson’s character Becky, the angsty star of the film, relayed an overused and shallow character concept of a disturbed teenage daughter, although it was refreshing to see Kevin James outside of his usual comedic and goofy character archetype.
With critics and viewers alike comparing Becky to a gory version of Home Alone, the film failed to deliver on an idea which had the potential to be a crowd pleaser. The execution was somewhat cliché and slow, with the film lacking a sense of engagement and suspense.
