Chris' Film Club: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Chris's next musical choice is 'Sweeney Todd'.

In the film Johnny Depp stars as a man accused of a crime he didn't commit and deported to Australia by a Judge enamored by his Wife. Returning after 15 years and calling himself Sweeney Todd, the now-mad man vows revenge, applying his razor to unlucky customers and sending their body's to the  meat-pie shop below. Though many fall to his blade, he will not be satisfied until he slits Judge Turpin's throat.

Tim Burton directed the gothic musical, and Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman and Sacha Baron Cohen also star.
