A musical horror? Just didn't work for me. I find the musical genre a little too feminine.
Favorite musical. Never can get enough, and those pies though.

Well, it's a good story to show how revenge can lead you astray easily, if nothing else.

A well done film with good acting but I found it pointless, to say the least.

I really dislike this movie, maybe because it's a musical. Blaaaah!

Sweeney Todd is a throat-slasher of a motion picture. Johnny and Helena are just amazing!!
Too much singing..but I like Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter's acting.
Strong acting and the right mood, but the plot's execution was lackluster.

Dark and twisted in the most delicious way, this is one musical I can get behind.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 2007 horror musical film directed by Tim Burton. It is an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's Tony Award-winning 1979 musical. It re-tells the Victorian melodramatic tale of Sweeney Todd, an English barber who murders his customers with a straight razor and, with the help of his accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, processes their corpses into meat pies.
Having been struck by the cinematic qualities of Sondheim's musical while still a student, Burton had entertained the notion of a film version since the early 1980s. However, it was not until 2006 that he had the opportunity to realize this ambition, when DreamWorks announced his appointment as replacement for director Sam Mendes, who had been working on such an adaptation. Sondheim, although not directly involved, was extensively consulted during the film's production.
It stars Johnny Depp as Sweeney Todd and Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett. Depp, not known for his singing,...
