Becoming is a supernatural thriller about Alex (Toby Kebbell) and Lisa (Penelope Mitchell), a couple newly engaged and deeply in love. While on a road trip, they encounter an ancient evil force that chooses Alex as its new host and begins to slowly take over his mind and body, gradually transforming him into someone terrifying and violent. The changes are small at first. His handwriting. His body language. As Alex struggles with the horror of losing his identity, Lisa notices the shifts in the man she thought she loved. Is he falling out of love with her, or is it something far, far worse? Lisa tracks down Kevin (Jason Patric), a damaged survivor of the entity who has dedicated his life to defeating it. Together, they must outwit an indestructible malevolence that doesn't want to destroy Alex, it wants to be him.
Good story, but not flawless for the rest
To me it didn't matter in which category they categorized this movie, it's a bit of all of the genres mentioned without any genre being more represented than others. The story was interesting enough to keep your attention at all time. To me it was well thought of, probably the best thing about Becoming. The acting wasn't bad but not the greatest either, it had it's ups and downs. The cinematography wasn't flawless, it made it look like it could have been a TV-movie at times. There is some suspense and the story is innovative and good, all reasons enough to give it a shot, just don't expect a masterpiece.
