review by Bobby Blakey

In 2020 audiences saw Lulu Wilson showcase her violent side in the film Becky co-starring the usually funny Kevin James in a role like you have never seen him. The film co-stars Amanda Brugel, Robert Maillet and Joel McHale and kind of had a quick in and out release due mostly to the pandemic at the time, but still got great response from fans. With the upcoming release of the unexpected sequel, The Wrath of Becky, Ronin Flix has brought the film home with an all-new Blu-ray release. Could this flick bring the violent fun the trailer promised or will it fail to hit the nail on the head?

Becky follows Spunky and rebellious, Becky who is brought to a weekend getaway at a lake house by her father Jeff in an effort to try to reconnect. The trip immediately takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run, led by the merciless Dominick, suddenly invade the lake house.

I thought the red band trailer to this film looked pretty fun so was looking forward to checking it out, but add to the mix a psychotic Kevin James and I was all in. Initially I thought the film struggled a bit to find its footing, but the choice of the opening sequence telling two similar tales while being completely different was awesome. Revisiting it with this release I actually think it works with its set up way more than I originally thought. Maybe it’s because I knew what fun it was, but it sets the tone to what’s to come.

Once we get things going then it gets pretty crazy fast. I loved the over the top aspect to the kills at times as well as a more realistic approach to how Becky did what she did. Sure there are elements that are ridiculous, but that is part of the fun. Lulu Wilson is no stranger to horror with films like

Annabelle: Creation and Quija: Origin of Evil, but this time around she is no scared kid. She is angry, depressed and ready to dish out the pain and does just that.

Kevin James is really good in this type of part. I was afraid his comical persona might be too strong, but his look and imposing stature really works. He is subtle at times while being a really scary guy that you believe is going to hurt anyone he has too. There is a seriousness that just works with him that I honestly never would have thought would overshadow his other hilarious work, but hope this is just a first because I loved him here.

The film is just a blood soaked fun insane ride that offers the kind of kills that make you cheer and laugh. It has become a favorite of mine and I hope with this release it gets an even bigger audience as we prepare for more blood soaked fun in the sequel.

In addition to the film this release offers up bonus content including commentary, featurettes and so much more taking fans behind the bloody fun. Grab your copy of Becky available now from Ronin Flix and Quiver Films.
