"Visually sumptuous and playfully creepy."

— Marc Caro, Chicago Tribune

"This is the best-looking horror film since Coppola's 'Bram Stoker's Dracula.'"

— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Gorgeous filmmaking that brims over with funhouse thrills and ravishing romance."

— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"An entertainingly eccentric horror tale that envelopes the audience in a dreamy and bloody nightmare."

— Todd McCarthy, Variety

"This is a very bloody fantasy (reds do eke their way into the black-and-blues), but it's hard to think of another film with as many severed heads whose overall tone is so sweet."

— Mike Clark, USA Today

"An exquisitely mounted effort created to the exact specifications of an adroit director whose sensibility is truly bizarre, Sleepy Hollow is kind of an ultimate Tim Burton movie."

— Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
