5.0 out of 5 stars Sleepy Hollow Is a Genuine Fright-Fest June 30 2004
Format:DVD
Tim Burton's films, often praised for the intensity of their mood, bring with them a glimpse of the darker side of the human psyche. His characters are often dis-jointed, dark, but at their core, always human. Often, his films are as centrally located around an individual, quite often the title role of the story....such examples include the title characters of films like "Edward Scissorhands, Jack Skellington of "A Nightmare Before Christmas", and Bruce Wayne in "Batman". It is his central character that the story seems to evolve around, and it is often seen from that perspective, providing the audience a narrative thread that they can relate to throughout the film. The same is true of "Sleepy Hollow".
Loosely based on "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving, Burton's "Hollow" is seen from the perspective of Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp (formerly seen in Burton's "Edward Scissorhands")), a New York detective/criminal investigator who is sent to the farming community of Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of several of the local townsfolk.
Burton weaves elements of the original "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" into his story, while creating backstory to further develop all the characters, from the families in Sleepy Hollow, to Ichabod Crane, even to the Horseman himself, centralizing the narrative of this story around Crane's investigation into the murders. While in Sleepy Hollow, Crane quickly learns of a conspiracy that seems to exist amongst the principals of the townfolk.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Take On a Classic Tale July 1 2004
By Jordan
Format:DVD
In the trend of other Tim Burton films, the complextion of the film is creamy, and satisfying. It tells the common veiwer about Sleepy Hollow, yet puts new tantalizing details in the middle of well known scenes. It finally answers the reader of Washington Irving's book where this terror came from, and why it hunts and why it is indeed "headless". The cast is believable, yet the only weak point is Christina Ricci, who seems to be trying to hard to pull off her role. The cinematography is brilliant, something only Tim could do. It becomes dark at the right moments, and is bright and sugar-sweet when it tells the back story of Johnny Depp's mother, and once again is dark as it learns her fate. This film is not only wonderfully thrilling, but comedic in points where you would think it couldn't. Shall I say, they involve blood squirting, staining, spraying and squirting some more. Johnny Depp is a wonderful pick for this movie, as he gives us exactly what we want from anyone playing Ichabod Crane, plus a little bit more. Have fun, yet do not laugh for too long, or it will surprise with it's random and scary turns.

5.0 out of 5 stars We're Gonna Need Shorter Coffins... June 29 2004
Format:DVD
Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is sent from NYC to Sleepy Hollow to investigate 3 grizzly, decapitation murders. Upon arrival, he finds out that the entire town is gripped by superstitious terror. It seems that these were no ordinary killings, and the killer is far from ordinary himself! A headless horeseman roams this place, seeking heads for his collection. The logical Ichabod soon realizes that he's dealing with the supernatural when he comes face to... um, well, shoulders with the dreaded horseman. He figures out that these are not random murders at all, but part of some diabolical conspiracy! Katrina Van Tassel (Christina Ricci) is a young, beautiful witch, who is either out to help or hurt Mr. Crane. Weird happenings, ultra-creepy atmosphere, and perfect casting, make SH a horror classic! Tim Burton has brewed a comic / gothic stew of darkness and dreamlike imagery. Check out Christopher Walken as the hessian! Christopher Lee even makes a cameo as the Burgomaster! There are familar faces from Harry Potter, Star Wars, and, of course, some past Tim Burton epics. Highly recommended...

4.0 out of 5 stars A decidedly different Hollow June 9 2004
Format:DVD
Washington Irving laid the foundation for this story. Burton built on that - a wonderful structure, but not what Irving had in mind. Fine.
Depp, of course, is wonderful as an overly straight-laced Crane. He's a hard-core realist, in a truly unreal situation. Ricci does an outstanding job, too. The real star, though is Tim Burton's visual sense. Just about every scene is at least tinged with his macabre sensibility, most especially the "fifth victim." Burton truly outdid himself with the bizarre array of instruments given to Crane for his scientific investigations.
I know this is just entertainment, but at least one anachronism stood out. Window glass at the end of the 18th century was still a hand-made product, with ripples and pontil marks. Here, though, just about every window was glazed with flat "float glass." I can't get too worked up over that, though.
The story is well paced, with a web of interlocking tensions between the main characters. The visuals create a rich, spooky ambience. This movie is easy to enjoy and well worth the time spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Haunting May 28 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I once went to a school called Washington Irving, home of the Headless Horseman. Naturally, I was intrigued to see this movie because I love Tim Burton, Christina Ricci, and of course, who could miss out on Johnny Depp? He was perfectly cast as Ichabod Crane, giving him a comically quirky persona, but those are the type of roles Johnny Depp is known for and pulls it off well.
Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the mysterious beheadings in the town. Armed with his scientific know-how, he marches directly and tactlessly into the investigation, raising the eyebrows of the skeptical villagers. At first he scoffs at the villager's superstitions of a headless horseman, but as more people turn up dead, he begins to doubt his rational explanations. But Crane is detemined to get to the bottom of the mystery. The closer he gets to the truth, the more his life comes close to peril.
With Tim Burton's stunning yet haunting visuals and a wonderful screenplay, you'll be gripping your seat as this foreboding, more athletic version of the headless horseman comes to take the head of his next victim. Who in the town is trustworthy? Who will be next? You don't know until everything is unravelled in the end. Burton and Depp, rejoined for the first time since Edward Scissorhands are both known for their artistic eccentricity. Together they made a smashingly good film. This is the one to watch on Halloween if you want a scary good treat.

I'll make this simple and brief. If it didn't say "Blu-ray" on the box, I would've thought it was a standard dvd. The picture quality absolutely sucks. Read more
