Full of twists and fun scares, Sleepy Hollow is a supernatural who-done-it wherein Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) tries to find out who is behind the frightening murders in that old town and putt the ghost to final rest. Christina Ricci portrays his love, who happens to be a witch. Entertaining and lavish, make Sleepy Hollow part of your Halloween tradition.

A great and gory retelling of the Washington Irving classic with fantastic production design and the right amount of black humor.

Continuity mistake: We are told that the horseman's sword cauterises the wounds it makes. Earlier on in the film, however, the cuts cause squirts of blood to fly into the air, such as when the scarecrow is sprayed with blood. (00:03:40)

Trivia: When Crane starts chopping the Tree of the Dead and he gets blood in his face, this was a joke from the directors as they knew he wasn't expecting the blood. You can see the look of surprise on his face. It was well-known among the cast and crew that Johnny Depp (who played Crane) hated anything being sprayed in his face.

Question: Why did Van Garret want to keep his marriage to Widow Winship a secret?

Answer: It may have been because she was a widow. I'm not sure, but it was possibly frowned upon at the time.

The widow was pregnant with Van Garett's child.
