Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Steet

Post by CluedoKid »



Rewrite the tale of Sweeney Todd, who's skin was pale and his eye was odd....


Your name is Benjamin Barker, or at least it was. It's Todd now. Sweeney Todd...and you will have your revenge that you so richly deserve....

or will you?

Now it's your choice!


What will happen? Will you build an partnership with the diobolical Mrs. Lovett and provide better filling for her pies? Or will you fall in love with her and run away together instead? Will you go on a bent killing spree forcing open as many throats of London's gentlemen as you can? Or will you blunder and find yourself in the gallows?


Or will you end up the same way as the play?


Only you can decide in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street Choose-Your-Path!

I can't wait, for the blood to burst out of the throats of many. I'll slit and slice, I'll then pry open the throats :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Sorry guys. This game might not see light for a while.


I worked hard on a chunk of the character artwork and it's all been deleted. It was my fault as well. I didn't save when I should have, I go to make a new piece when suddenly I discover that it's all gone. I've kind of lost the heart a bit right now.


(Of course I could just be saying this because I'm mad as *beep* right now. I suspect by tomorrow I will have blown some steam and start right back up again)

It has become one of my favorite movies. I cry ever time I watch 'Not While I'm around'

and my favorite song is 'By the sea'....Mr. Todd, ooh, I know you'd love it! You and me, Mr. T, we could be alone

*Shiver* The movie was a little too gory for me...

I admit the plot, music and casting were great, but it was the gore that really got to me. (But then again, why am I complaining??? I watch hockey regularly :lol: )

Hooray! I see my hockey joke is understood! :lol:

I don't watch many musicals, but there are a few that really stand out. SWEENEY TODD is one (despite the gore) of these.

That's why it got rated 18. Speaking of which, just out of interest, is there anything beside gore in the film that I should be wary of, in case I check it out some time?

Actually, the Beggar Woman's soliciting part is not in the film. It was recorded for the soundtrack and, of course, remains in the stage version of the play, but it does not appear in the film.

I love the movie in spite of its goriness (is that a word?) and I think my Dad did too (he laughed at a lot of the sick jokes I laughed at too), but it was too gory for my Mom, and this is someone who can watch open heart surgery on TV without getting the urge to throw up!
To anyone considering seeing the movie: It's a terrific movie and stands out from typical light-hearted happy musicals, but if you can't make it through the first death, you WILL NOT make it through the rest of the movie because the people who die all meet gruesome ends.

Judge Turpin almost shows Anthony a book of 1800s *beep*, but it doesn't get opened :wink:
