Day 150

Movie: Sleepy Hollow
Starring: Johnny Depp, Miranda Richardson
Genre: Horror, Drama, Crime, Mystery
Year: 1999
Format: TV EDIT

Plot: The village of Sleepy Hollow has had an unusual number of their population killed by a ghost.  It's up to Ichabod Crane to find out who is behind it all

Another Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp film. 
The styling of it is brilliant, the right tones of gloomy are hit.  Classic images of the story are given a bit of a quirky freshness by the duo.

This is one of those films that might have gone wrong.  Ghost stories have mostly been  dealt with, with the extreme horror but this was done with more of a low key idea; giving it more of a crime drama spin. 

What do I think I learned from this film?
This is one of the creepiest stories in the world, no matter how you slice it.
