After a gruesome living nightmare and hell in the middle of the ocean’s cells, Barker has returned with vengeance and to repay the crimes he never done with his razor awaiting him.

Alas! My arm is complete!

A new man was born – the name that will take his revenge is Sweeney Todd.

Let's make some meatpies!

With a little help of Mrs. Lovett’s (Helena Bonham Carter) meat pie shop, Todd will have his hands on the throat of Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman).

 

The name is Benjamin Barker!!

Reviewer’s Note:
A musical horror and thriller film which is so fascinating and so thin and meaningful the storyline that takes the whole world into “the great black pit”.

The best musical horror of the century since the Phantom of the Opera! It’s one of my favorite collection for now. Broadway would be much better.
