October Horror Movie Challenge: Becky (2020)

Becky (2020)
 Tonight is not a Summer Camp movie. I actually have one planned for that, but I need to watch them in a particular order.  So tonight is one my wife picked. It takes place in a lake house so that is close, I guess. This one is more survival horror with Becky as a classic Final Girl.

Becky (2020)

Becky (Lulu Wilson, Kestra from Season 1 of Picard) is a 13-year old girl whose mother just died from cancer and she is not dealing with it well.  Her father, Jeff (Joel McHale), plans a weekend at their lake house, but also invites his new girlfriend, Kayla (Amanda Brugel), and her son, Ty (Isaiah Rockcliffe).  

Near the same place, four neo-Nazi escaped prisoners (the leader played by Kevin James) kill their guards and make their way to the lake house. They attack Ty, Kayla, and Jeff. They are looking for a key with a Valknot on it. 

They find out that Becky is still out in the woods and they torture Jeff to get Beck to give them the key. When Jeff tries to run, they kill him.  Becky then stabs Dominick (James) in the eye with it. 

The others go looking for Becky. She runs to her fort and the dude chasing her follows until he sees her dog and freaks out. He tries to make a deal with her for the key, but she recognizes him as the one who killed her other dog. She tosses a coin out to make it sound like she threw the key. He goes to get and she slides down a zip line and stabs him with a broken ruler. 

Becky then proceeds to draw the others out and she kills them as well.

My wife called it Home Alone meets I Spit on Your Grave. Thankfully without having to torture Becky to get there. 

Actually kind of a fun, if violent flick. 

There is a sequel, Wrath of Becky, that looks rather fun too.

I've heard of that one but never got around to watching it.

Summer camp reminds me I should watch the "Sleepaway Camp" movies. I actually like the second two better than the first one. They're cheesier but there are some neat kills.
