Apparently, these men in black kidnapped Jamie and she then gives birth to a boy (Michael Myers' kid). Anyway, I don't want to spoil anything...this film tries to explain why Michael Myers kills his own family members. And, in my opinion, it does a pretty good job doing that. This is the type of movie that requires multiple viewings in order for the plot to click but I enjoyed it. The ending is not the best but I guess it's appropriate. Overall, I rate it a 6/10 OR 3/5

Robert H (jp) wrote: This. This is more like it. After the last few Hitchcock films left me wanting a little, FRENZY returns to the type of film that he did so well. The plot is one that he frequently used: an innocent man wrongly accused, but he didn't just rehash old material. He upped his game and brought his filmmaking style into a more modern sensibility, all while maintaining the suspense and black humor that had become his trademarks. While I've yet to see any of the films from his British period, I am aware that FRENZY hearkens back to his first real success, which was THE LODGER. And in terms of what I've actually seen, I noticed a lot of DNA from earlier efforts like SABOTEUR, REAR WINDOW, and PSYCHO. The film grabs you and sucks you in from the opening notes of its title sequence, a fanfare which triumphantly announces that he's back: back in his native England, and back in top form. And it wastes no time in thrusting you into this familiar, yet slightly changed world. One thing that benefits the film a lot is the screenplay by Anthony Shaffer, which is filled with great dialogue and biting wit. There was also a sinister, Victorian elegance to the score. And, as with all of his other films, there are a few sequences which stand out. The best of these is probably a long, continuous shot which pulls back from the scene of a crime as Hitchcock leaves it (and its aftermath) to the audience's imagination. Still, perhaps in concession to the changing times, this film does contain some nude scenes and somewhat more vicious-minded, if not particularly graphic, violence. It reminds us that the gory details are often best left to the imagination; they're the icing on the cake, and not the cake itself. Another audacious thing Hitchcock does is make the protagonist rather unlikeable and have us sympathize (at least in one protracted scene) with the villain. Overall, I thought that he was in top form here, adeptly mixing suspense and comedy, all while exploring his favorite themes of sex, death, and food. In regards to food, the Chief Inspector's wife has perhaps a couple of the funniest scenes in the whole film. For me, FRENZY was a welcome return to form after the last few misfires, and it's great that Hitch seems to be going out on top.

He's building a pair of wings so he can fly his way to freedom. A young ladyfriend of his brings him organic food every day or so and masturbates in front of him as he exercises.But Sally Kellerman doesn't want Brewster to have sex with this girl (or anyone) because he'll become too attached to the earth. Sally takes off all her clothes and gives Bud sponge baths.Meanwhile, a cop arrives in Texas to help solve a series of murders where all the victims have been strangled and crapped on by birds. It seems to be making fun of "Dirty Harry", "Bullitt", Disneyland, and makes references to Captain America and "The Wizard of Oz". This is weird even for Altman.I have no idea what any of this means, and the middle is kind of fat, but it's about as original as movies get, and oddly moving at the end.
