* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Sweeney Todd may get his revenge, but he also unknowingly kills his long lost wife Lucy, and when he finds out Mrs. Lovett knew who Lucy was all along, he throws her into the oven to be burned alive. As he begins to sing a reprise of "The Barber And His Wife," Toby, who is implied to have been driven insane by what he has seen and done, emerges from the sewers and kills Todd himself, with his own razor, no less. The last shot is the now-dead Todd holding his dead wife.]]

** The pose that Todd and Mrs. Lovett strike at the end of "A Little Priest" is meant to resemble the poster for the original West End production.

Added DiffLines:

* HeWhoFightsMonsters: As mentioned on the page for the musical, Sweeney becomes so obsessed with revenge that he ends up becoming just as inhumane as the man he actually ''wants'' to kill by casually slaughtering anyone and everyone.

* RapeLeadsToInsanity: Lucy, [[spoiler: aka the begger woman]]. One line in "Poor Thing" mentions that she could handle raising a child alone, her husband's jailing and Turpin's persistent advances, but being cornered while drunk and raped pushed her over the edge.



* RealityEnsues: Once Sweeney's finished singing 'Epiphany', Mrs Lovett--not looking at all impressed--asks dryly "That's all very well, but what're we going to do about ''him?"'' Alluding to [[spoiler:Pirelli's corpse stuffed in the trunk]]. Cue Todd awkwardly getting up off his knees.

** While out in the marketplace, Sweeney sees Judge Turpin out of the corner of his eye and reaches for his razor before Mrs. Lovett quietly tells him that a crowded market is ''not'' the place to commit a murder. Cue Sweeney slowly putting his blade away and looking at the ground sheepishly.

* AssociatedComposer: Averted. This film and ''Film/EdWood'' are Tim Burton's only movies not to have a Creator/DannyElfman score, although in this case, it's because... well, there already ''was'' a score.

* ApatheticCitizens: During "Poor Thing." Not only do the partygoers do absolutely nothing as Judge Turpin forces himself on Lucy, they [[CircleOfShame crowd around to watch it happen and]] ''[[CircleOfShame laugh at her]]''.

* CrapsackWorld: To quote Todd himself:
-->'''Todd''': There's a hole in the world like a great black pit\\
And it's filled with people who are filled with ''[[PrecisionFStrike shit]]''\\
And the vermin of the world inhabit it...
