Trivia

The junk yard seen in the movie is real. Several years prior to the film's production, a yard worker was crushed to death by a piece of heavy machinery which was being driven by another employee to move junk cars. Rumors soon arose that the junk yard was haunted by his ghost. Film production had already begun before anyone involved with the movie "learned" of this legend. As a "precautionary measure", a local priest was asked to perform a blessing on the filming location. In appreciation, the production company made a charitable donation to the priest's church. Nothing out of the ordinary happened at first, but it was soon reported that "unexplained lights" were seen floating around the empty set in the late evening and at night. Also several windows of junk cars mysteriously shattered for no apparent reason during the daytime while film crew members were nearby. The priest returned to perform blessings each morning at sunrise. He also went to the nearby cemetery where the yard worker was buried and anointed the stone entrance-way with holy oil (the act of "Holy Unction"). In the Orthodox Christian tradition of "Almsgiving", food and new clothing was purchased and subsequently donated to several local charities near the junk yard. Oddly, no other "unusual incidents" were reported during the production. See more »

Looking For A Top To Chop
10 January 2009 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A group of seven young people ride into a Deliverance like town in the piney woods in the Appalachians and to their dismay find this is the hunting ground of the headless horseman. Washington Irving did not tell the truth about it being in the Hudson Valley, it was really in Eastern Tennessee. Anyway old headless has been doing his accursed thing for two centuries now.

If this one didn't come out on the Science Fiction Channel it would have been one of those early season big screen releases that folks just love to go to for the gore.

As the jock types and wise kids get shortened a little bit on Halloween, it turns out that the kid who reads the classic literature, Billy Aaron Brown, comes up with a way to defeat the unreasoning one.

Watching this slasher flick, the song that Bing Crosby sang about The Headless Horseman from the Walt Disney cartoon feature of Ichabod Crane kept going through my head. They should have featured it here, it couldn't possibly have hurt the film.
