Tim Burton along with an amazing cast doing a great story. Yes, please!
Have you ever seen a Tim Burton film? Now add local folklore about an upstate NY town with a hell of a story about a headless horseman, and you are in for a treat. Visually, it’s stunning. This is one of my favorite Burton films just to marvel at because so many things look immaculate.
Then there is the cast. My goodness. Johnny Depp plays Ichabod Crane, and is one of my 3 favorite Depp roles. Christina Ricci is looking fabulous as Katrina Van Tassel, and she was a great actress back in those days. She deserved better. Christopher Walken plays The Headless Horseman, or Hessian Horseman. The great Jeffrey Jones is here, as is Miranda Richardson, Casper Van Dien, and Christopher Lee. It’s a legit all time cast.
This is still on NetFlix and you owe it to yourself to watch it if you’ve never had the pleasure.
Rating – 7.2 It may even deserve higher to be honest.
