Video: How Does The Disc Look?
It's funny how so many of these late-era Hitchcock flicks pale in comparison to the video quality of the director's earlier works. Frenzy looks fine on this 1.85:1 1080p transfer, but it's definitely not perfect. . There's some print wear easily observed in the form of dirt and white specs, but far less than I was expected. Black levels are decent although contrast is somewhat limited, giving darker scenes less than pristine detail. Grain handling is also hit-and-miss - the movie doesn't take on the firm glow that films like Rope or Rear Window do on their respective Blu-ray editions.
Audio: How Does The Disc Sound?
The DTS-HD 1.0 Master Audio sound mix on Frenzy's Blu-ray Disc, like most of the tracks on The Masterpiece Collection, is just fine. Dialogue is audible throughout, effects seem appropriately represented, and music comes across with a lovely - if limited - presence. No major complaints.
A French DTS 1.0 track is included, as are English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
