Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street ★★★★

Horror Rewind 2007. This turned 10 back on December 21st. Never seen this R rated Horror/Musical before today and I kind of regret that since this ended up being pretty great! It’s pretty epic as it runs nearly 2 hours. Tim Burton reunited with both his frequent collaborator Johnny Depp and his former girlfriend Helena Bonham Carter (they have 2 kids together). This film is pretty gory. The story follows Benjamin Barker AKA Sweeney Todd who is a barber by day and a killer of men by night. He returns to London and proceeds to extract bloody vengeance on those who have wronged him. For a film that’s over 10 years old now. The only person gone is the always great Alan Rickman, who was once again was a victim of pancreatic cancer. How many people is this disease gonna take away from us? Yeesh!
