Sweeney Todd


Todd, a Victorian barber, returns to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. He and Mrs. Lovett, owner of a failing pie shop,hatch a plot to benefit them both. Todd opens a barber's shop above her pie shop, slitting the throats of his customers whose bodies are then incorporated into her pies. She has lied to him that his wife is dead but in reality she has become deranged and unrecognisable. He realises the true identity of the beggar woman only when she lies dead in his arms. Todd's beautiful daughter, Johanna, finds true love and escapes with Anthony, a former associate of her father.
