The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Reviews:

I thought this was the greatest of the "Sleepy Hollow" movies that I've seen (incl. the Johnny Depp and Jeff Goldblum versions) at staying real to the original storyline (however, I really liked Tim Burton's ver as well). Though I accept that the legend doesn't especially create for a tight 2-hour feature, this film, which I discovered accidentally on an obscure channel, was very entertaining. Brent Carver was nice as Ichabod Crane, but the guy who played Brom Bones was a bit too "cutesie." A nice choice for adults and kids alike.


Not as nice as the Disney animated version, but much superior to both the Jeff Goldblum and Johnny Depp versions. What makes any live action adaptation of Washington Irving's classic is the choice of Ichabod Crane (The Disney ver is judged based on it's narrator, Bing Crosby, who's self-mocking "hip" style, carries the story). Certainly Brent Carver dominates this role from the begin when we see him perched upon a hill looking like a scarecrow, it is a startling shot by the director. In the early TV movie version, Jeff Goldblum certainly looked the part, but he was too dull. In Tim Burton's spoofy ver Johnny Depp (a favourite of mine, especially in Tim Burton films) is just poorly cast (as was Wednesday Adams as Katrina, give me a break puleeeze!). This ver is the closest to capturing the flavor of the classic short story. If you wish to see Disney's Sleepy Hollow or Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow then the choice is obvious, however, if you wish to see Washington Irving's Sleepy Hollow check out this obscure cable channel version.


The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1999): Not to be confused with the marvelous Tim Burton movie that was released the same year, this ver (produced for Canadian television) is, at best, a tepid adaptation of Washington Irving's classic story. Unlike the Burton and little-seen Jeff Goldblum versions, which both utilized various takes on the plot, this small-budget translation literally goes by the book, yet it suffers greatly from trying to stretch out the short source material to detail length. The effects are incredibly slow pacing and lack of zest throughout, right up to the unspectacular representation of the Headless Horseman. Brent Carver and Rachelle Lefevre deliver as Ichabod Crane and Katrina Van Tassel, respectively, but babyfaced Paul Lemelin is miscast in the role of roughneck Brom Bones. The film's erroneous opinion of itself states that it "captures the mystery and romance that have eluded another screen efforts." Unfortunately, nothing should be further from the truth. 5/10
