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 »
I expected the worst here I have to be honest, every previous movie regarding the Headless Horseman mythos has failed royally.
Early on it follows the usual formula of a bunch of 20 somethings on a road trip going on a shortcut and running into trouble. So little originality is on display, then you have the shoddy sfx and patchy script and the thing was setup to follow suit and fail miserably.
However somehow it came out watchable. The cast are oddly competent, Richard Moll is present and the practical effects look great.
Sadly it does trail off a bit and yes as mentioned it has its fair share of flaws. Thankfully there is enough decent content to counter this and Headless Horseman though nothing special is a harmless take your brain out horror effort.
I'll say this, it was still better than Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Horseman actually looks okay
Cast do a great job
SFX aren't great
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
When blowing up a car you may as well blow yourself up with it because reasons
Homeless people wouldn't miss their heads
