Even though Sleepy Hollow takes hair-raising liberties with the great Washington Irving story on which it is based, it is nonetheless a ripping good ghost story.

It's really too bad the script stinks.

Sleepy Hollow has an aesthetic that seems based on album covers. It doesn't feel like the work of an artist in any way.
June 5, 2002
Not devilishly funny enough to be a black comedy, not remotely scary enough to be an effective thriller, and too deficient in chemistry to be any kind of a romance.

Tim Burton ends up slitting his own throat.

A stylish and imaginative screen adaptation of Washington Irving's classic.
February 21, 2002
Devoid of originality and cunning.

Even when the narrative stalls from too many detours and decapitations, Sleepy Hollow is gorgeous filmmaking that brims over with fun-house thrills and ravishing romance.

The pace and tension are both kept up throughout the film, aided and abetted by Danny Elfman's dramatic score and the remarkable visuals.

The weaknesses of Sleepy Hollow are trivial but they unravel the marvelous [visual] fabric that Burton has woven.

As heroic failures go, it's up there with the best.

Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow" may be one of the best slasher movies ever made. Of course, that's not saying much.

Burton and company were harkening back to the old days-the Hammer/AIP pictures from the fifties and sixties. And they hit that nail right on the fricking head.

It's fun, it's funny, it looks great and it's got Johnny Depp. What else do you need to know about the movie, anyway?
January 1, 2000
Sleepy Hollow is a fabulous hoot, and you feel Burton's delight in every frame.

Burton has made a wonderful monster movie from a script that doesn't understand this is a monster movie.
January 1, 2000
Burton wins us over with the bravura of the film's rich atmosphere and nightmarish imagery.
