I've heard so much hype about this movie, so I bought it off ebay, which BTW, sometimes it goes for almost a hundred dollars! Anyway, I watched it and it made me wonder what the hype was all about. Just another "Headless Horseman" story, and I've seen better.

[img][/img] [b]The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1980)[/b] I felt like rating this movie because almost no one has seen it and not on person on RT has even rated it. As much as I enjoyed the big-budget Johnny Depp version, this version is almost as good in my opinion. I liked the atmosphere of this movie over the 1999 version. Jeff Goldblum was perfect in his role as Ichabod Crane, as a tall and scrawny scarecrow looking guy which is exactly the way he was supposed to look in the book. I haven't seen this since I was a kid but I absolutely loved it then.
