Abstract:

Sweeney Todd: Sweeney Todd lures customers into his barber chair, gleefully promising to "polish them off." He then releases a trap door, dumping the unwary patrons into the basement. After robbing his victims, he gives the bodies to a kindly old lady next door who makes them into "meat pies."

Crimes at the dark house: A deranged man murders another man in order to assume his identity and take over a recently inherited estate. Soon after arriving at the estate, the psychotic man finds he must continue his murderous tendencies in order to keep his charade from being exposed. As the number of victims increase along with his deepening madness, it becomes a matter of time before all is revealed and the man's true identity is exposed.
