The infamous story of Benjamin Barker, AKA Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop down in London which is the basis for a sinister partnership with his fellow tenant, Mrs. Lovett. Based on the hit Broadway musical.
Helena Bonham Carter,
Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. While the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
It hasn't even been a year since a plantation owner named Louis lost his wife in childbirth. Both his wife and the infant died, and now he has lost his will to live. A vampire named Lestat takes a liking to Louis and offers him the chance to become a creature of the night: a vampire. Louis accepts, and Lestat drains Louis' mortal blood and then replaces it with his own, turning Louis into a vampire. Louis must learn from Lestat the ways of the vampire. Written by
In the trailer, Lestat says to Louis, "You're a vampire who never knew what life was until it ran out in a red gush over your lips" as he takes the goblet with the trollop's blood to Louis. For some reason, this line was cut from the film. See more »

An entire hour is missing from the released version
Neil Jordan who is masterful with small intimate films, served up scrambled eggs on this picture where budget was no object. There is an entire hour missing from all the released versions because in 1994 Geffen/Warner Bros. didn't believe a film audience would sit through a well paced, well told story for three hours. No one in charge had seen Apocalypse Now. Perhaps someday it will be reedited and my work and the entire hour withheld will be added.
