Genre: Drama Horror Musical

I loved the movie since the first time and will always love this movie!  The music has been stuck in my head lately so I decided to add it to my list of 31 horror movies for 2015!  Though I don’t personally consider it a horror movie, as a friend recently pointed out that it really is because of the murder that takes place.  I curse that friend for being correct and bow to his wisdom.  Which ultimately is more reason to include this movie on my 2015 list!  So I am not complaining!

I love the music, yes this is a musical, consider yourself warned.  I have never seen this show on stage and really want to! I have always been fond of Stephen Sondheim’s musicals though.

This is a star studded cast of epic proportions!  You have Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen.  They really couldn’t have cast this film better.

The steampunker in me adores the fashion in this movie!!! The details are great!!  In both the costumes and the set designs.

I know I am unrealistic but I think everyone will and should love this movie!   I hope you enjoy it and much as I do!

  1. You can get the stage version on DVD. I think it’s even the Angela Lansbury one. AWESOME. Rented it from Netflix years ago (DVD, not streaming).
