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. Expand

But Burton was a master of horror with " Sleepy Hollow" and based on the short story by Washington Iriving the visions of Burton and co- producer/headless horse men effect Kevin Yagher resurrected the Iriving's story and put it perfectly in Burton anf Yagher's vision. Grade A + BEST TIM BURTON FILM EVER ! Expand

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.

I loved this movie! Almost everything was perfect, besides a few things that the editor should have caught, but I suppose every movie has that.

A fun horror film with with fun visuals but not lacking for a good story. A pretty good job staying true to the original tale, but it is very dark which adds a really sense of evil in the headless horseman.

Tim Burton delivers a fantastic tale of the legendary Sleepy Hollow, which, though not without its flaws, manages to be a thoroughly entertaining program.

In the movie adaptation, New York detective Ichabod Crane must travel to the mysterious Sleepy Hollow in order to solve a series of murders that took place there, but realizes the town's dark history and the legend of a headless horseman might be the true culprit. Sleepy Hollow is essentially a highly stylized slasher flicks. There are lots of gory decapitations set against a fittingly gothic tone, and although it's never truly heart-poundingly intense, there is a great atmosphere and some creepy imagery. Burton does make this movie a bit darker than his previous films (at the time), but there's still a bit of humor in its heart, mostly because of Johnny Depp's role as the Ichabod. Even though it deviates significantly from its source material, Sleepy Hollow is a fun, atmospheric movie. Expand

Sleepy Hollow is a fun horror / comedy from Tim Burton. It's gory and fun and has an entertaining performance from Johnny Depp. It's also just the right level of scariness and violence to make it a suitable Halloween movie for 10 year old kids, too.

Things unfold nicely, but not too easily, and not hastily, either. Expand

"Sleepy Hollow's" pacing may be a bit too off-kilter at times, but its hard to deny the visual majesty at hand, thanks in no small part to the creative talents of Tim Burton and Emmanuel Lubezki.

Also, the music and sound effects complimented this frightening and legendary story of the murderous Headless Horseman. Overall, I believe this is an excellent film and will definitely be remembered as a landmark in the thriller/horror genre of film. Expand

Johnny Depps performance and Tim Burtons deeply stylish imagery manage to salvage the inane plot and over the top action sequences which act as nothing but a relentless and un-exciting barage on the senses. All the characters beyond the leadJohnny Depps performance and Tim Burtons deeply stylish imagery manage to salvage the inane plot and over the top action sequences which act as nothing but a relentless and un-exciting barage on the senses. All the characters beyond the lead are flat and some great actors (Michael Gambon among them) are not given the screen time they deserve. On a better note, fans of Danny Elfman will be pleased with his epic soundtrack. Sleepy Hollow is dumb eye candy, but should keep you nicely entertained, just dont expect to remember much about it 5 minutes after its over Expand

All add together toThis one's negatives do outweigh its positives, but its strengths are really stupendous. Where some things falter, the main consistencies here would have to be the costume design, production design, and the cinematography. All add together to make this a visually striking and beautiful film. I may not have loved the film, but I really wanted to, if only for those elements being so strong. In addition, this one is very good at mood setting, as it feels dark, disturbing, and creepy throughout. However, this mood does get upset by one of the main negatives of this film; the acting. The acting from everyone is poor at best. I expected a lot better from Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci, but their performances felt entirely wooden and emotionless, even worse when they did put in emotion, it felt entirely over the top. The added in demonic elements were also entirely off-putting and came off as forced. Finally, the special effects lacked at times. A lot of the time, the special effects were extremely cool and well done (everything with the tree), but a lot of the time, they fell flat and just looked overly stylized and fake. As a whole, Sleepy Hollow rides on its visual splendor, but is nothing more than eye candy unfortunately. Expand
