One hell of a film.

As a rabid anglophile and all-around film buff, Frenzy ticks all the right boxes. Hitchcock is in fine form, laying the suspense on thick and showing London in its post "swinging" hangover.

The end might have the most badass line ever put to film. I was about to mention which specifically, but then it occurred to me it kind of ruins the surprise.

What did you think of this review?

Just watched "Family Plot" for the first time in a long time. Your review reminds me to pick up this film in the near future. Love Hitchcock!

About this movie

Wiki

Frenzy is a 1972 thriller film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, and is the penultimate feature film of his extensive career. The film is based upon the novel Goodbye Piccadilly, Farewell Leicester Square by Arthur La Bern, and was adapted for the screen by Anthony Shaffer. La Bern later expressed his dissatisfaction with Shaffer's adaptation.[1] The film stars Jon Finch, Alec McCowen and Barry Foster and features Billie Whitelaw, Anna Massey, Barbara Leigh-Hunt, Bernard Cribbins and Vivien Merchant. The original music score was composed by Ron Goodwin.

Frenzy was Hitchcock's first film to earn an R-rating, as Psycho was originally released unrated.
