Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The ending of missing Ichabod Crane can be frightening.
  • Ichabod's ride home in the dark as he anticipates possibly running into the headless horseman may be quite an intense scene for younger or sensitive children. There are quite a few false alarms from various nature elements of the hollow which add to the tension, and the Headless Horseman eventually appears at a point where viewers are fooled into letting their guard down.
  • Bing Crosby's final line of narration at the end of the film is 'Man, I'm getting outta here!' which while tongue in cheek, may not be a relief to those who may have been frightened by the final segment.
  • The last shot of the Headless Horsemen may intimidate some viewers, as he holds a burnt skull which happens to be the head of Ichabod Crane.
