Ultimate Revenge Movie: Sweeny Todd

Just saw the trailer of the latest Johnny Depp Film, Sweeny Todd. At first, I thought it was just another slasher flick then I distinctly heard Johnny Depp singing and I asked my boyfriend, what the heck is that? Apparently, it’s supposed to be a movie adaptation of a musical about a demon barber out for revenge.

Most action flicks and horror films sometimes center on revenge as their theme because, who wouldn’t want revenge? Let’s face it, no matter how morally upright we were brought up, if someone hurts us or the ones we love, we always have that feeling inside us that wants revenge.

Speaking of revenge, best revenge film I’ve seen so far is Kill Bill. You can positively taste Uma Thurman’s thirst for revenge in every scene. The list of body count alone would tell you how much Uma Thurman would want to stick the sword in Bill’s gut. Anyways, if you like revenge films, you’ll probably like Sweeny Todd. Sweeny Todd is about a man who was unjustly sent to prison and then vowed revenge for his punishment and for what happened to his wife and kid after he was imprisoned. Sweeny Todd turned into a turned into some sort of serial killer and shaving the heads of his victims in his barber shop.

For more information about the movie, you should visit the official Sweeney Todd movie site and while you’re at it, you might also want to visit Sweeny Todd on MySpace.
