The Wrath of Becky

Set three years after the events of Becky, our sociopathic teenager has found some relative peace after going to war with the Neo Nazis who murdered her father. Successfully running from every foster home offered to her, Becky (Lulu Wilson) has found a new home with the elderly and unprying Elena (Denise Burse) and a crappy job as a waitress at a local diner. A run in with a trio of assholes, however, will change the course of Becky's path once more in this dark comedic thriller that proves one of the oldest rules to be true: never mess with people who serve you your food.

With her friend dead and her dog stolen, Becky tracks down the survivalists to the nearby home of their terrorist leader (Seann William Scott) putting the skills learned years ago back into action using psychological and guerilla warfare to get revenge for her friend and rescue her dog.

John Wick taught us to never mess with someone's dog. Unfortunately for our trio of would be terrorists (Matt Angel, Aaron Dalla Villa, Michael Sirow), I don't think they saw that movie. And their underestimation of the scorned Becky will be their downfall in bloody and often gruesome ways. While we do get some foster home shenanigans and some fun early fantasies from Becky dealing with her customers, the movie doesn't really pick up until she wakes to find her world shattered once again and sets off for revenge, but once the fun starts The Wrath of Becky certainly delivers a bloody good time despite a questionable late twist and a bit of world building to set up a potential sequel.
