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.

And the vermin of the world inhabit it...
