Quotes

Tobias Ragg: Suppose I arrange to get rid of it?
Rosie: I don't want to get rid of it.
Tobias Ragg: Well, I do.
Rosie: Well, that's too bad honey, because I ain't getting rid of no baby. That baby's stayin' right where it is. Cause that's the only hold I have over you. Rosie ain't so dumb.
Tobias Ragg: So that's it, is it?
Rosie: That's it.
Tobias Ragg: I think I'd make other plans.
Rosie: That's a good idea, Tobias. You just do that and make sure every one of those plans includes little ol me.
Tobias Ragg: You heard me. I said they don't include you.
Rosie: How are you going to get out of it...

Sweeney Todd and butchery.
26 June 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"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!
