Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Never forget. Never forgive.
I'm too busy to get a haircut.
Set in London a few hundred years back, a young barber is happily married with a wife and daughter. An evil judge takes a fancy to his wife, and deports the barber to Australia on trumped-up charges. Years later, the barber manages to return, seeking revenge. He sets up shop in his old premises, but with a twist... customers leave via a chute to the meat pie kitchen downstairs, after he has slit their throats...
