    Sweeny Review

    Sweeny Todd is a spectacular movie I would have to say the BEST Tim Burton has directed! It's shocking,suspenceful,lovley,dark,eerie,gross,but still wonderful. Sweeny Todd is Oscar worthy,I can NOT stop thinking about it. The music is beautiful, the words in some of the songs are a little fast to understand but after a while you'll get it. I recamend you see Sweeny Todd imediately you will love it,I know I do.

    A must have book for Sweeny Todd fans.

    I had never followed the story of Sweeney Todd prior to seeing Tim Burton's spectacular film adaptation. I am now a completely addicted fan of this amazing film. I have already seen it twice during it's opening weekend and plan to see it as many more times as I can until I own it on DVD. The joining forces of everyone involved, from Sondheim and Burton down to the films newest stars, have created a true masterpiece. Dare I say the absolute best Burton/Depp collaboration to date. I am very excited that this companion book is available and can't wait for it to arrive in my hands, it looks to be a must own for every fan of the film.

    Well Worth the Price!

    I loved this movie, and this book made me love it even more! It has beautiful pictures from the movie, and wonderful behind the scenes info. It even had some of the storyline at the end. It was like watching the movie all over again! I will definitely buy this movie when it comes out on dvd!

    First of all, I haven't seen it yet, but I sooo want to. I mean for one thing it has Johnny Depp in it!!! Major hottie. Second, I love being scared so of coarse I would pick this book! After I read it I'm going to talk my parents into letting me see it!!! Even though they are against me seeing it!!! They just don't understand I won't be scared by it once I read the book. Anyhow, you need to read this book! It is going to be amazing! I just know it!!!!!!!
