    There aren't exactly a lot of horror musicals. Although trying to dig up a list of less known horror musicals would be interesting.

    You do know that it was all based off a book that the silent film phantom of the opera was based off of. And I'm sure the creator based his musical off of other incarnations of the phantom

    What about "Reefer Madness"? It's got pseudo-zombies, multiple murders, cannibalism, orgies, hallucinations, and an awesome score. Or what about "Evil Dead: The Musical"? You can't get much more horror than Ash, the Necronomicon, and the Deadites.

    I actually HATED Tim Burton's Sweeney Todd. Sweeney is supposed to be an older man with a deep operatic voice, and Depp had a very plain, just okay voice. Also they cut a lot of the original score.

    The Devil's Carnival was supposed to have a feeling of dread? I couldn't be scared of a bunch of people who keep breaking out into song.

    And some after dinner smokes are what I'm all about

    My mischievous stare and devious glare
    We'll take your greasiest pair of knees, tits and hair
    And you know I'll eat 'em raw, fuck medium raw
    Ha-ha
