Day 305

Hallowe'en Week

movie: Sweeney Todd
starring: Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter
genre: Horror
year: 2007
format: DVD

plot: A barber returns to his home after years of being in prison, to find that his wife is dead and the man who put him in prison is raising his daughter.  Soon, he goes on a spree of revenge with the help of the woman who is running a store in his old house

This is a musical-opera, based on the stage play.

The blood count is high, the look glossy-morbid, and the story thin.
The Tim Burton factor makes this an interesting movie, but I don't get what it is that draws millions to this story. (keep in mind I'm talking about the movie only, as I have never seen the stage play)

what do i think i learned from this film?
Lies, betrayal, broken hearts. It can happen to anyone at any time, it's up to the each person to be able to keep control of the darker side even when they would be in the right.
