Frenzy 18 rating

Hitchcock returned to London for was his penultimate film, a brutal serial killer drama that proved the veteran still had the edge.

Police drama 1972 116 mins

Director: Alfred Hitchcock



Alfred Hitchcock’s penultimate film saw him come full circle and return to the London where he made his name. His most brutal film, about a serial strangler on the loose in Covent Garden, Frenzy could arguably be seen as Hitchcock’s attempt to remain relevant in the wake of the 1970s surge in movie violence, but if anything in remains one of his most characteristic films, complete with suspense scenes, wrongfully accused men, virtuoso camerawork and dollops of gallows humour.
