Restless spirits stir this Hollow's Eve, beckoning Ian Cranston, the last blood relative of Ichabod Crane, back to Sleepy Hollow. Thundering hooves unleash a wave of bone-chilling screams as the ghost of the Headless Horseman rides again! Ian must try to save the town and his girlfriend, Karen and determine whether the sword-wielding stalker is their clownish classmate, Brody in costume, or the dark rider himself. If it's truly the Headless Horseman... how do you kill what's already dead? Written by

Ichabod was killed by the horseman, right? There's absolutely no way he coulda had kids or grandkids...
Claus Van Ripper:
You know that's not true. The story says that he was never seen again. But not being seen again is not the same thing as not being alive.

The Hollow, as a modern take of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, has many parallels to the original story-many more than say, the version with Johnny Depp. This version will NOT be satisfactory to audiences who prefer slash and gore to horrify them, or that require high cost special effects. The young cast does an adequate job--honestly better than the older, veteran actors. Kaley Cuoco and Kevin Zegers are refreshing, and almost unbearably cute. Nick Carter is surprising in his first movie role. To quote Washington Irving, "full of fun and arrogance, more mischief than illwill" his Brody is at once menacing, arrogant and mesmerizing. He commands the screen. The sole veteran actor who makes steals the scene from the youngsters is Stacey Keach as Claus--we must see more of him. All in all, this is not a movie that would do well at theaters OR impress late teens, but it IS good TV family entertainment for Halloween.
