Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.

The films of Tim Burton shine through the muck like a jack-o-lantern on a foggy October night. After such successes as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands, it should come as no surprise that Sleepy Hollow is a dazzling film, a delicious reworking of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Dark and moody, the film is a thrilling ride back to the turn of the 19th century. Johnny Depp stars as Ichabod Crane, a seemingly hapless constable from New York City who is sent to the small town of Sleepy Hollow to solve the mystery of the decapitations that are plaguing the town. Crane is a bumbling sort, with a tremendous faith in science over mysticism, and he comes up against town secrets, bewitching women, and a number of bodies missing heads. Christina Ricci, as beautiful as ever, is Katrina Van Tassel, the offbeat love interest who alternately charms and frightens Crane.

The film, while occasionally gory (as one should expect from a movie about a headless horseman), is not terribly frightening, although it is suspenseful. Both Depp and Ricci are convincing, and the art direction and production values give the village its harsh feel. Toward the end, once the secrets are revealed, the film does slow down; however, this stylistic horror film provides many tricks and even more treats. –Jenny Brown

“The horseman comes, and tonight he comes for you!” 2010-10-25
By E. A Solinas (MD USA)
There are only a handful of movies that I consider to be the true Halloween classsics… and “Sleepy Hollow” is one of them. Loosely adapted from Washington Irving’s story, this Tim Burton classic is part romance, part detective story, and part gothic horror — and Johnny Depp helps elevate it to a brilliant supernatural thriller.

Constable Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is sent to the tiny town of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of murders. He soon learns that the locals believe that a monstrous undead Hessian known as the Headless Horseman is the one who’s beheading people. As a rational man of science, Ichabod thinks this is ridiculous… until he has a close encounter with the Horseman after he committed some of his murders.

But Ichabod is still convinced that someone living is controlling the Horseman, and it’s all wrapped up in a complex scheme involving a pregnancy, a marriage, a will, and a tangled family tree. But as deaths stack up and heads roll, Ichabod and his orphaned servant Masbeth (Marc Pickering) discover that they are up against evil that they couldn’t have even imagined.

“Sleepy Hollow” is vintage Tim Burton, back when he was a little more restrained about said style — everything is painted in blacks, whites and greys with brief splashes of color (BLOOD!), eerie gothic buildings, and skeletal trees. And there’s that little edge of rickety weirdness, especially when Depp whips out his buggy-eyed binoculars.

Now, it’s not perfect — the witch’s hentai-tongue/eyeballs always make me burst out laughing. But Burton really infuses this movie with a sense of creeping, bloody horror that gets more and more nightmarish, peppered with moments of bleak humor (Ichabod trying to throttle the Horseman) and some really disturbing beheadings. It’s a pretty sharp contrast to the rather sweet, shy romance between Ichabod and his host’s daughter, Katrina Van Tassel.

As for Depp, he’s absolutely perfect — he plays Ichabod Crane as a young man with a horrifying past (which is revealed via dreams) and an abiding love for logic, science and reason. He’s also pretty nervy, fragile and neurotic; how often do you see movie heroes who faint more often than the heroines?

Christina Ricci is rather wooden at first, but she improves a lot as we discover some of the secrets she keeps hidden. Pickering is excellent as a young orphan who latches onto Ichabod as a surrogate father, and Miranda Richardson is all spidery creepiness as Lady Van Tassel. Also keep an eye out for Christopher Lee, Michael Gambon and Christopher Walken’s hilariously over-the-top Horseman.

“Sleepy Hollow” is all creepy atmosphere and weirdness, but it also has a solid story at its center. Blood, magic and a deranged undead horseman, all done with Tim Burton’s gothic style.

“Sleepy Hollow is wonderfully made” 2010-10-22
By A Fan (Sunny Florida)
Sleepy Hollow is wonderfully done. It has unique and interesting characters, plenty of plot twists, and both the scenery and clothing are magnificent. The movie jumps right in to the action, which I found refreshing. There is a lot of suspense and it is difficult to guess what is going to happen next. This movie is awesome.

“Great for Johnny Depp Lovers!” 2010-07-02
By Lisa Wright (WINSTON SALEM, NC, US)
This movie is on my favorites list. If you love Johnny Depp, you’ll love this movie.

“Don’t the Bluray! Buy the HDDVD!” 2010-04-24
By Darragh Haigney (Ireland)
I have both versions of Sleepy Hollow after buying the Bluray I was hugely let down by the worse than vhs quality of the picture. I managed to find a copy of the HDDVD to download and the picture quality is a thousand times clearer. Find the HDDVD copy don’t bother with the Bluray.

“Heers Johnny!!” 2010-04-22
By Don
Johnny Depp is in fine form in this Tim Burton reworking of the classic Sleepy Hollow Fable. Instead of the bumbling country boy Ichabod of the original story Depp plays a bumbling New York City detective sent to investigate the murders taking place in the Hollow. His scientific methods using strange tools and powders of of his own invention are useless in solving the case because as he finally realizes he is dealing with the supernatural in the form of the Headless Horseman played by a very creepy Christopher Walken. Christina Ricci is

beautiful as Katrina Van Tassel and a perfect foil for Depp to play against.The supporting cast is also outstanding making the film a delight to watch.
