    This is the best-looking horror film since Coppola's "Bram Stoker's Dracula."

    Gorgeous filmmaking that brims over with funhouse thrills and ravishing romance.

    This is a very bloody fantasy (reds do eke their way into the black-and-blues), but it's hard to think of another film with as many severed heads whose overall tone is so sweet.

This puts a modern and dark spin on the old Hallowe'en tale. The aesthetics are creepy and the performances of the actors and actresses are great. The story is great. Johnny Depp is absolutely excellent in his role as Ichabod. This movie was an instant classic the day it was released. Full Review »
