During the final days of 1799, ambitious young policeman Ichabod Crane (Depp) is sent to the fog-shrouded village of Sleepy Hollow to investigate a series of decapitations, but his scientific beliefs are shaken when he comes face to space with the Headless Horseman. Burton gives Washington Irving's Gothic folktale a distinctly British colouring, as he borrows merrily from the Hammer films of the 50s and 60s, while Depp brings the right note of comedy to the dark proceedings.
