Why so underrated?!

13 years, 11 months ago at Mar 10 18:52
Frenzy is a film that I never really knew much about despite it being a Hitchcock film and for that its underrated. When I saw Frenzy, I couldn't believe how disturbing it is. When I was in the first 20 minutes, I started to get a bit bored because it took a bit too long to get going. Despite it being a thriller, it was a slightly different kind of Hitchcock film because it is set in an ordinary m... read more

A good movie

Many consider this movie to be the last masterpiece directed by Alfred Hitchcock and I was indeed quite impressed. Even though it may not be as good as his previous classics such as ‘Psycho’, ‘Vertigo’ or ‘The Birds’, it still is a damned good picture. Personally, I especially enjoyed how dark the tone was and even tough the guy has constantly made some impressive thrillers through his... read more

London is held in the grip of a serial killer whose modus operandi is to murder his victims by strangling them with a necktie. When short-tempered ex-Royal Air Force officer Richard Blaney (Jon Finch) discovers his ex-wife (Barbara Leigh-Hunt) murdered, Blaney becomes a suspect. Forced to go on the run, Blaney attempts to take refuge with his best friend, fruit merchant Bob Rusk (Barry Foster), however Rusk may, in fact, be the necktie murderer himself.

My Top 10 Favourite Hitchcock Movies (10 movies items)

"It's about a man falsely accused of being a serial killer who murders women with neckties. In many ways, it's as basic a tale of mistaken identity as it sounds. But the main character is what makes it stand out. Jon Finch is phenomenal in the role; when it comes to playing characters with tempers, he was the best. :-) There are also two particular noteworthy moments: a rape scene early on, and a sequence in a truck that makes you squirm while making the killer seem more human at the same time. I"

"Highly underrated Hitchcock film that has him working more in the modern slasher vibe, and the damn thing is a hoot. Found the remastered DVD for the collection."

"Re-watch - Dec. 24th Some Nightmares Before Xmas I wound up at home without any plans on Xmas Eve, so I decided that after lunch I'd have a mini marathon of horror films (hence the title above). Frenzy is still an expertly crafted outing for Hitch, with a story that fits right in among the other '70s horror and thriller output. It's dark with a sense of humor, and the cast is excellent. The only thing missing from it is that magical feeling I get from the ones I award a 10/10 to."
