Sweeny Todd Poster by rillani Sweeny Todd Poster by rillani
This is for the Sweeny Todd poster contest, held by none other than the very folks who made the movie. Pretty cool.

I thought I'd go with a little symbolism. The story is a tragedy (in its own way), and Sweeny is out to avenge his wife, who was wrongfully messed with by a corrupt judge. That's Sweeny's eye there reflected in his razor, and his wife's face in that little blood droplet. Not coincidentally, the blood drop is also positioned right where a tear would be falling from Mr. Todd's eye. That's to show just how messed up he is.

As for the original Sweeney, go on crimelibrary.com and read the article on Sweeney Todd. It's really fascinating.

I had a look. That is pretty fascinating -- I had no clue he was a real guy.

Lovely.

Effortlessly simple, yet it's got a lot to say at the same time.

I'll always prefer the original versions of the Sweeney character, the inexcusable sociopath, before they went and gave him all this angst and revenge motivation. He was a lot more terrifying back then. Nothing to do with your poster, of course, just thought I'd take the oppurtunity to ramble a little. :)

Thanks.

I wish I knew what the original versions of Sweeny are. I only know of the musicals, and I haven't even seen one -- just listened to the audio soundtrack on long drives. :)
