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.

Found this on demand, had never heard of it but thought why not, super vague description had me curious.

This is a surprisingly interesting little flick. It's got a fascinating concept, decent acting and it just never delivers well enough. There address some interesting notes on abusive relationships and bettered wife syndrome along with generational transition of rage and cruelty but it's so unfocused and meandering at times that it makes it hard to get real invested. There's also not much explanation why anything is happening.

As I think back, this really frustrates me. There's something here, a fascinating concept and screenplay, is just lacking that special something, that polish that could've made this something special. As it stands now, it's too forgettable and doesn't give me quite enough to sink my teeth into but it's so close. Sadly, we have what we have, not what I wish we had so this ends up being a surprise but still underwhelming. That said, if you have the chance, this isn't an awful and there are definitely worse things to watch.
