Sweeney Todd - Der teuflische Barbier aus der Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd wird unschuldig ins Gefängnis geworfen und schwört Rache nicht nur für seine brutale Strafe, sondern auch für das grausige Schicksal, das seine Frau und Tochter erleiden müssen. Eines Tages kehrt er zurück, arbeitet wieder als Frisör und steigt zum dämonischen Barbier der Fleet Street auf: „Er rasiert den Gentlemen die Köpfe, die daraufhin spurlos verschwinden.“ Helena Bonham Carter backt als Mrs. Lovett diabolische Fleischpasteten und wird Sweeneys Geliebte und Komplizin. Alan Rickman spielt den bösen Richter Turpin, der Sweeney ungerechterweise zur Haftstrafe verurteilt und damit Sweeneys Rachefeldzug provoziert. Unterstützt wird der Richter von seinem verschlagenen Partner Beadle Bamford.
