Demon Barber of Fleet Street

It’s a 30’s British movie and has to be judge as such. It has most of the characters from Sweeney Todd but they are all different. Sweeney Todd isn’t the tortured soul that he is in the newer movie. Instead he is a really creepy man who adopts Toby. Todd has had all his apprentices disappear under mysterious circumstances. The guy playing Sweeny Todd comes off like a child molester. He kills people because he is crazy and evil. His acting makes that more than a good enough reason.  Instead of being the father of Joanna, like in the new one, he is obsessed with her and wants to marry her. But basically, the story is the same. Todd kills people, Mrs. Lovett cooks them into pies.

It is also worth noting, this is not a musical. With all that being said, it’s an ok movie. Not better than Road House but I had fun. I’d say, if you liked the new Sweeney Todd, then watch this one and just see what you think.
