Sleepy Hollow


Set back in Ye Olde America, our hero, investigator Ichabod Crane arrives in the hamlet of Sleepy Hollow to investigate the claims of a headless horseman lopping off the locals' heads. A man of science (kinda), he does not believe in the supernatural and is ill-equiped to deal with it. Luckily he meets a young lady who knows a spell or two to help him out.
Good special effects, especially the head-chopping bits, but may be a bit gory for some.

Ian Douglas: Wow. Hollywood has certainly mastered the art of on-screen decapitation. (Not just here, but in ''Final Destination'' and ''Gladiator'' too.) Now let's hope they turn their attention to something more pleasant. The story starts off as a science-vs-superstition plot, and one expects science to win, but it loses badly. The film goes so way-out as to be unbelievable, especially as far as the witchcraft-related aspects are concerned. Kinda like ''Stigmata'', Hollywood goes for special effects instead of logic. I'm sure the teenagers will love it.

Amanda Miller (14): I loved it!!!
