Dir. Tim Burton
Rating: [M]
Genres: Horror, Family / Fantasy, Paranorma

Topics: Period - 1800s, Gothic, Halloween-friendly.


Aroview: The oft-filmed short story 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow' is fashioned by illustrious iconoclast Tim Burton as the goriest, most expensive-looking 'Hammer' film ever made.

Johnny Depp returns for his favourite director as Ichabod Crane, a fey 19th Century detective whose healthy sense of scepticism marks him out as the man to solve the mystery of the 'headless horseman' murders in the Gothic backwoods of New England. Despite Burton's customary visual panache and the top flight cast, there is little here that registers as much more than homage.
