Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Musical

Like Horror? Love Musicals? Then Sweeney Todd is for you πŸ˜› . This is a great movie with stunning songs and a stunning narrative. Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter are both fantastic as Sweeney Todd and Mrs Lovett πŸ™‚ . The overall look of the film works and helps create a dark atmosphere (which you need for a film about cannibalism πŸ˜› ) . The songs may not be to everyone’s liking (unless you are a Sondheim fan like myself πŸ˜› ) . My favourite songs in this movie are “Johanna” sung by Jamie Campbell Bower and “Not While I’m Around” by Ed Sanders. Everyone was perfect for the characters they were creating though I was not a big fan of Johanna (Jayne Wisener) as the character was a little weak. Understandable but not a favourite of mine. The blood may look a little off (like paint) but it works for the overall look of the film. Highly enjoyable and is my favourite Sweeney Todd film so far πŸ˜€ . Enjoy πŸ™‚ !

I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
