During the American War of Independence, insurgent Ichabod Crane, an English-born professor and civil rights pioneer, is among the pile of victims of a headless, ax-wielding Redcoat. Two centuries later, both are resurrected when their graves are disturbed. Sheriff August Corbin, whose county includes Sleepy Hollow village, is among the latest axed victims. However he leaves notes which are found by his headstrong deputy, lieutenant Abbie Mills, and the arrested, fascinating Ichabod, whom captain Irving orders to be evaluated in a psych ward. Ichabod gets visits from the ghost of his wife Katrina, who reveals being a good witch from an order fighting the evil one in league with the four riders of the Apocalypse, which includes Death, in the shape of the Redcoat.

Clancy Brown, who plays Sheriff August Corbin, is making a career out of being decapitated as he was decapitated in Sleepy Hollow by the Headless Horseman and he was also decapitated in the film Highlander (1986) by Connor Macleod (Christopher Lambert), where he played The Kurgan. See more
Katrina Crane was supposed to have been burned as a witch. No witches were ever burned in the United States, or what would become the United States. They were all hanged. See more
Tell me about the Horseman. Would you admit cutting off his head, yes or no?
No. First I shot him, then he rose back up. Beheading him seemed the next logical step.
