New York detective Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of mysterious deaths in which the victims are found beheaded. But the locals believe the culprit to be none other than the ghost of the legendary Headless Horseman. This is a jaw droppingly gorgeous horror that also includes some of the best sword fighting ever put to screen.

TNT RoughCut by Christopher Brandon

In between all this head-scratching nonsense, Sleepy Hollow can be fun, usually whenever the Headless Horseman shows up for swordplay that's better than anything in "The Phantom Menace."


L.A. Weekly by Manohla Dargis

There's so little going on with either the film's story or its characters, however, that there is plenty of time to get lost in cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki's eerily beautiful visuals.


Variety by Todd McCarthy

An entertainingly eccentric horror tale that envelopes the audience in a dreamy and bloody nightmare.
