.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Fantasy Romantic - Sleepy Hollow is a Gothic-style horror film from director Tim Burton. Fans of Burton's other atmospheric films may be particularly interested in the dark, moody atmosphere; fans of classic horror films of the 1960s may enjoy the stylistic similarities. Some viewers may be turned off by the frequent scenes of violence and scariness, particularly frequent decapitation scenes. The story also involves a "whodunnit" storyline that may be distracting.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
Watching Sleepy Hollow, you realize that Tim Burton could have made a definitive masterwork about the Headless Horseman...if anyone had given him a script that was actually about the Headless Horseman. Changing source material -- even radically changing source material -- is nothing new in Hollywood, so it's not terribly surprising to find only a passing resemblance between the film and Washington Irving's classic ghost story. It is both surprising and inevitably disappointing to discover that the classic ghost story has been turned into a whodunnit.
