    Sleepy Hollow has great effects and acting in a creepily effective tale. The whole movie is exciting,
    refreshing and every moment is enjoyable. If you're looking for a epic horror thriller, Sleepy Hollow
    will satisfy your palate.

    Fresh spin on the classic story. Love the contemporary twist. After watching the pilot episode, I am now intrigued and committed to watching the next few episodes. Good writing, good acting, great imagination, all the ingredients for potential greatness. Hopefully, the series lives up to this great pilot.

    The best movie with Tim Burton and Johnny Depp working together (except for possibly Edward Scissorhands). 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.

    In Burton's hands, Washington Irving's spooky classic is reincarnated as an overripe, grisly Goth cartoon.

    Burton's films are endearing and impassioned despite the fact that they generally fail to tell a whole story, create a single rounded character, or inspire even mild laughs or chills.

    Flawed at its core but stunning nonetheless.
