    Sleepy Hollow is an underrated thriller that is one of the coolest movies from 1999. If you like intrigue
    and spectacular special effects, you'll love Sleepy Hollow with a passion.

    Sleepy Hollow has action, drama, romance, suspense, mystery, horror, and comedy. Sleepy Hollow is a
    multilayered horror classic. :::::::::::::::::::::

    Sleepy Hollow is a masterful take on the headless horsemen tale. A visually stunning thriller with brilliant
    acting. One of Depp's and Burton's classiest movies.

    Sleepy Hollow is a fantastic horror movie that is very stylized and highly entertaining. Depp and Ricci rule.

    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.
