This version is pretty much what author Washington Irving had originally written. It is the exact opposite of the Tim Burton film. This film, while niely made, looks and feels like a cheap PBS production. It's great fun for families, that's for sure, but far from being a classic or gripping. I think, after seeing Burton's film, we sorta want that gothic horror film feel that he created. Not here. What this is is a faithful adaption of Irving's story. I love the story and every shape and form it comes in, but I prefer Tim Burton. Still, a very faithful adaption of the story.
