"Bloodthirsty Butchers" is possibly Andy Milligan's most famous horror film.This is somewhat clever take on the Sweeney Todd story woven around themes of dominance and submission.Populated with a collection of selfish characters and a very small number of decent human beings bloody murders are taking place on Fleet Street and nobody seems to notice caught up as they are in their own little worlds--until they wind up murdered themselves.Unfortunately I found this film a bit disappointing-I enjoyed "The Ghastly Ones"(1968)more.There are some good scenes of splashy gore and butchery,but the rest of the film is too talky and dull.In my humble opinion Andy Milligan was an underrated filmmaker-I'll definitely check out more of his stuff if I have a chance.4 out of 10-a breast in a pie scene is priceless!
