Sweeney Todd, played by Johnny Depp, was originally a man named Benjamin Barker. He was living a happy life with his wife and daughter as an English Barber in the movieSweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. An evil Judge, because of his desire for Benjamin Barker’s wife, falsely accused Benjamin Barker of committing a crime he did not commit. Benjamin’s Barker’s life was destroyed and he spent 15 years in an Australian prison. But finally, he escaped, barely recognizable. He took the name of Sweeney Todd. He vowed to avenge Judge Turpin, but every human he could get his hands on.
As a result, he created a special chair in his barber shop which bent back towards a trap door causing the victims sitting on the chair to fall into the basement and killing them. And yes, he would also use his razors, slitting their throats first before trapping them in the basement. His partner in crime is Mrs. Lovett, helped him dispose of the victims by making mince meat pies from their victims and feeding them to unsuspecting people.
