Tim Burton’s (Beetlejuice) unusual interpretation of Washington Irving’s classic tale The Legend of Sleepy Hollow imagines Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) as a police constable investigating a series of bizarre murders in a small Dutch town in Upstate New York. While Crane believes the murders have a logical explanation, the townspeople believe the evil deeds are the calling card of a headless Revolutionary War soldier who haunts the countryside in search of his missing head. Equal parts fun and frightening, this supernatural shocker costars Christina Ricci, Miranda Richardson, Martin Landau, Christopher Walken and Christopher Lee!
