    The wit is too weak to sustain a film, and the songs all sound the same.

    Totally on the money as a representation of dark humour but time has aged this film and there is no denying that it is not scary. Tim Curry isTotally on the money as a representation of dark humour but time has aged this film and there is no denying that it is not scary. Tim Curry is made of the stuff of legends and he is the only bright spark in an otherwise slightly dull experience. Wholly relevant but underwhelming and slightly too niche for my tastes. I am sure this works better as literature or musical. 72/100 Full Review »
