Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
A bone-chiller that still manages to inject humor, this movie was based on an actual event and even spawned Stephen Sondheim's hit play "Sweeney Todd" in 1978. Slaughter portrays a mad barber who has a deal with a baker to provide fillings for his meat pies. Unfortunately for the barber's customers, their visit to his basement makes them an integral part of that deal. ~ Tana Hobart, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"All of [the creaky storytelling] fades to nothing but dim shadows, eclipsed by the glorious villainy of Todd Slaughter."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"It's, well, a cut above most other musicals."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Terrific Tod Slaughter barnstormer. Not his best, but his most famous."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
