Frenzy

 (1972)

Frenzy Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In modern-day London, a sex criminal known as the Necktie Murderer has the police on alert, and in typical Hitchcock fashion, the trail is leading to an innocent man, who must now elude the law and prove his innocence by finding the real murderer,

Frenzy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Minted from a dated master, Frenzy's 1080p/VC-1 encoded video transfer hasn't been given the ground-up restoration it requires. The image is quite pristine, without much in the way of print blemishes, source noise or compression anomalies, but it also exhibits the telltale signs of overzealous noise reduction and artificial sharpening. Mild to moderate edge halos are apparent throughout, faces are often waxy and unnatural, midrange shots struggle to resolve fine textures, and crush blots out even more detail. Compared to previous home video releases, the Blu-ray offers an easily discerned upgrade, mainly in terms of color vibrancy, contrast consistency, black depth and overall clarity. But those improvements are uneven at best and fail to silence one prevailing truth: Frenzy could look much, much better. If nothing else, it could certainly be the recipient of a more filmic presentation, if not a top-tier catalog stunner. As one of Hitchcock's lesser known films, though, the chances of Frenzy receiving that five-star transfer anytime soon are slim to none. Flawed as it is, this is about as good as it's going to get.

Note: Universal's U.S. Blu-ray release features the film's original opening title card and credit sequence.


Frenzy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Frenzy arrives with one of the most problematic two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mixes in the Masterpiece Collection set. Dialogue is often poorly prioritized, effects are typically too brazen or too weak, Ron Goodwin's overpowering score leaves very little breathing room for other power players in the soundscape, and haphazard ADR is an occasional distraction. None of it strangles the AV presentation, at least not completely, but it all takes a significant toll. Whether the culprit is the film's original audio elements or an average remaster isn't entirely clear. What is clear is that Frenzy could use an overhaul all around.
