From Back Cover:
"'Sleepy Hollow' is a marvel: bold, exciting and full of visions."
-Jeff Giles, NEWSWEEK
"An ultimate Tim Burton movie."
-Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES
Master storyteller Tim Burton (Batman, Edward Scissorhands) weaves an eerie, enchanting version of this classic tale of horror. Johnny Depp is Ichabod Crane, an eccentric investigator determined to stop the murderous Headless Horseman. Christina Ricci is Katrina Van Tassel, the beautiful and mysterious girl with secret ties to the supernatural terror.
"...An American classic."
-Joel Siegel, GOOD MORNING AMERICA
A visually stunning film that reteams Johnny Depp with co-star Christina Ricci (who has played opposite him in two other films, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and The Man Who Cried) and director Tim Burton (who collaborated with Depp in five other films - Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride and Sweeney Todd).
Burton gives his usual surreal touch to the film, which combines with the wonderfully talented cast to make for a movie that is a treat to the senses and a pleasure to watch.
