Thanks to the R-rating (a first for Hitchcock), his 1972 thriller Frenzy is a gleefully demented return to classic Hitchcock, with ya know, serial killers. Barry Foster gives a cheerfully creepy performance as the eponymous murderer that the press named the Necktie strangler. Jon Finch is his unwitting fall guy and he's an interesting character because he's really not that likeable. The rape/murder scenes are really quite shocking and are hard to watch even by 2014. The film remains entertaining thanks to its very macabre sense of humor and the constant complications that keep occurring to keep the audience yearning to find out how it ends.

The film is about a temperamental London man is mistaken for the Necktie Killer, a serial rapist/murderer stalking London women. Hitchock's last great film contains the director's trademark pitch-black humor, as well as uncharacteristically graphic violence. This movie has good directing and great shape writing story but to be honset this is not the best hitchcock film out they.

This is one of Hitchcock's last films and yet, in my opinion, one of his most tense and skillfully made. The killer is appropriately creepy and the murders brutal and unsettling. The film skillfully balances black humor with some genuinely terrifying scenes of crime-solving.

Nice job Hitch. Most people can't take this one, but I really enjoyed it. It is definitely creepy and is on my top thrillers list.

Frenzy review

Fantastically scored and skilled camera direction coming from the legend. One of the early dark comedies of its time. Richard Blaney (Jon Finch) gets fired from his job and converses about it with ex-wife Brenda (Barbara Leigh-Hunt), who owns a matchmaking agency. Robert Rusk (Barry Foster) fancies Brenda. Colleague of Richard, Barbara "Babs" Milligan (Anna Massey), trusts him after the incident. The first 33 minutes was thrilling, as the pace was very continues. Ms. Barling, Brenda's secretary, witnesses Richard after a murder. Chief Inspector Oxford (Alec McCowen) investigates the murder. The build-up on the antagonist was impeccable. Screenplay was superb with lines: Richard - "I guess you can call them social misfits." Brenda - "I know life can be really unfair." Aside from...
