You know, I had to wiki this one to make sure...it is pop culture but it definitely has some history to it. I saw it first in a community theater in 1998 or so and it was very entertaining. I don't know about that recent-ish movie though. Definitely worth seeing in some form I think..although which form and where beyond the film...I'm not sure.
Sweeney Todd is a fictional character who first appeared as the murderer of the Victorian penny dreadful The String of Pearls (1846–1847). He was later introduced as the antihero of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and its film adaptations
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is a 1979 musical thriller with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and libretto by Hugh Wheeler. The musical is based on the 1973 play Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Christopher Bond.
