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.

Did You Know?
When the headless horseman is attacking the priest in the churchyard, the priest uses magic to wrap the horseman in chains. The horseman uses his broad axe to sever the chains, one of which lashes back and slices the top off a street sign. When the sign is seen from the front later, it is a horse rider warning sign which now has the rider's head sliced off. See more
Ichabod's wife Katrina is buried in a church grave yard and her tombstone says she was burned for witchcraft. A convicted witch would not be buried on consecrated ground. See more
