Trivia Edit

  • Helena Bonham Carter in fact had to take singing lessons for the role of Mrs Lovett in Sweeney Todd.
  • Tim Burton insisted that "the film should be bloody" as he felt like stage versions had cut back too much on the blood, and he saw it as a metaphor for Sweeney's "Emotional release"
