David Keyes

There is a thorough sense of entertainment boiling over the pot here, and the material is well acted, skillful, and photographed with intensity.

Frenzy marked 3 kinds of return for Hitchcock: return to England after 20 years, return to form after some flops, and return to the kind of commercial film he's most clearly associated with.

This is one of Hitchcock's best and least appreciated films, with the Master getting a creative boost after a minor slump.

Middle of the road Hitch but still terrific.

Rather than classic Hitchcock, Frenzy feels more like a lesser director's cookie-cutter 'Hitchcockian' knock-off.

Frenzy is easily the strongest of the master's final works.

Even in his waning days Hitchcock created a unique brand of suspense.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

This is the kind of thriller Hitchcock was making in the 1940s, filled with macabre details, incongruous humor, and the desperation of a man convicted of a crime he didn't commit.

Christopher Null

One of Hitchcock's final movies is also one of his goriest -- his first R-rated feature -- and most dryly funny.

Among Hitchcock's most dramatic (and most gruesome) lapses.

Better than French fries at the Covent Garden 'Fish & Chips'.

Its violence and gore might seem tame in the age of Bad Boys II, but Hitchcock ratchets up the creepiness.

Alfred Hitchcock may be the Master of Suspense, but that doesn't make him incapable of making a lousy film.
