sweeney todd: the demon barber of fleet street..

It was truly a bloody musical. Gory, gross and greatly disturbing.

Yes, I am talking about you, Sweeney.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street

The synopsis of the story:

Benjamin Barker (starred by Johnny Depp) who comes out of prison after 15 years for crimes that he did not commit finally returns to Fleet Street under the pseudonym Sweeney Todd. The purpose of his return is to take revenge on Judge Turpin (starred by Alan Rickman) who takes his wife and daughter away from him and causes him his incarceration.

He meets Mrs. Lovett (starred by Helena Bonham Carter), a lady who is secretly in love with him, who lets him occupy the room above her pie shop. Soon, he turns the room into a barber shop. A shop like none other.

*synopsis ends here*

I think you better go watch the movie yourself. I could not write all the gross things here or else no one will visit this site ever again. Many died in the show and they became meat pies. No more elaboration. That sentence alone is horrifying enough.

What do I think of this movie? I will rate it 4.25/5.00. It was not too bad, really.

WARNING: This movie is not for the faint-of-heart. Don't say I didn't warn you. For those of you who want to watch it even if you have heart problems, go consult your doctor FIRST.
