Continuity mistake: When Ichabod and young Mazbeth are in the shop looking for information and they find the boy's father's will, Ichabod's hair changes from a neat bob to really messy and scruffy three or four times each time the shot moves away from him then back again. (01:05:25)
A police constable called Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to find a murderer who has already beheaded three people. He learns that a headless ghost is comitting the murders, but he has to find out who is telling the ghost to do it. On the way, he meets a beautiful girl whose boyfriend is conveniently killed, and Ichabod subsequently falls in love.
Trivia: Numerous references to other Tim Burton films: a) The dress Katrina Anne Van Tassel wears at the end is similar to Beetlejuice's outfit. b) Crane has various sharp scissor-like tools, which is a reference to Johnny Depp's early film "Edward Scissorhands" (1989). c) The scarecrow at the beginning looks exactly like Jack from "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (1994). d) The covered bridge is a lot like the bridge in "Beetlejuice."
