In early colonial America, young policeman Ichabod Crane is sent to the fledgling settlement of New York City to investigate a series of ghoulish murders. On his arrival, the town council informs him that the 3 victims were killed in open ground, and the heads had disappeared - taken by a headless ghost that is supposedly responsible. Ichabod is unconvinced of this, but learns more about the ghostly horseman - it is the ghost of a Hessian sent by the British during the revolutionary war, and he was caught by redcoats and decapitated with his own sword. When Ichabod sees the ghost kill one of the town council members, his skepticism evaporates - and he soon discovers that the horseman's ghost has an unholy connection to Balthus Van Tassel, a wealthy farmer - and whose daughter Ichabod is falling in love with...

    Okay, this is my most favorite movie of all time ever in existence... All thanks to Johnny Depp and Tim Burton. Johnny gives us a multi-layered character with a dark past and reasons for his actions. He is squeamish at the sight of blood, though his job is based entirely around it. The way that he can give such a convincing performance is beyond me. I wish I could be even half as good! And his faces... don't even get me started, that was half the reason I laughed so hard! Tim Burton gives us an action-packed and laugh-out-loud storyline. The horse chases, sword fights, and decapitation were all part of Tim's twisted imagination (which I am so thankful for) and it's great. He adds so many new details into the story to make it his own, like changing the job of Ichabod Crane entirely and giving Katrina a bolder personality. This is my most favorite Johnny Depp/Tim Burton movie. Must-watch for sure! Always on my Halloween and everyday movie list!

    Without a doubt one of my new Halloween and horror movie favorites. As slick as Edward Scissorhands. Certainly to become a classic amongst the greatest movies ever made.

    This is the best version of the Headless Horseman to date. I am not a fan of Tim Burton movies, but this is outstanding!! A fresh and invigorating take on a timeless classic to be sure. Well worth the rental or purchase price. If you are Headless Horseman fan, you cannot miss this one!!!

    This movie is a "must see". I love how there are moments of comedic relief so the movie isn't too deep into horror. Solid story and acting. Rent or own. You won't be disappointed.

    This was one of the first "scary" movies I saw as a kid. It still remains one of my favorite films of all time. Tim Burton is genius and unique in his filmmaking. Johnny Depp was perfect for the main role. Great, great movie!!!
