The Mayne Reid novel "The Headless Horseman" has been always very popular in Russia. I read this fine book at the age of thirteen and even now I read it sometimes. What we see in the picture is a bad camera working (sometimes actors can't be seen as they stand out of camera), bad acting and terrible ending (very hilarious). Also the Headless Horseman is simply ridiculous.
