Some years ago, Lars Von Trier made that remarkable Bjork-starrer Dancer in the Dark that gave a grim and gloomy spin to the ordinarily happy and feelgood musicals. Sweeny Todd garnishes it with liberal helpings from the horror and slasher genre. Of course, the film does have songs and melodies aplenty, but infinitely more blood and gore. It keeps getting bloodier by the scene, yet remains curiously engaging.
