Depp’s Bloody Hell As Sweeney Todd


JOHNNY DEPP quickly grew sick of the sight of blood on the set of new musical SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET – because it was everywhere.

Director Tim Burton insisted on a bloody mess as his ghoulish barber slashed clients in gory scenes.

Depp says, “I remember everyone except me being covered in plastic trash bags. There’d be a countdown: ‘Three, two, one… action!’ And then blammo…
the great deluge.

“It tasted kind of like a Karo-syrupy sort of thing. It was oily and it was dangerous, slippery.

“You’d see these big English grips, tiptoeing through the swamp of blood.”
