“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”

“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” Best known for playing the outrageous Capt. Jack Sparrow — a brigand who hasn’t made a trip to a local barbershop in decades — in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” blockbuster trilogy, Johnny Depp gives a razor-sharp turn in Tim Burton’s bloodthirsty 2007 adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s seminal musical about a vengeful barber. Depp received the Golden Globe, the MTV Movie Award for best villain and a lead actor Oscar nomination for his cutting-edge performance in the gothic horror tale. Warning: best not to eat any pies while watching.
