Are you looking for a scary movie to watch with your friends? “Sleepy Hollow” stars actor Johnny Depp and actress Christina Ricci and is an R-rated movie. The movie, directed by Tim Burton, will keep you in suspense again and again.The movie was based off of Washington Irving’s classic short story.

The movie is a drama about a New York detective called Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) who wants to create a more up-to-date justice system. An irritated judge ends up sending him to a little village called Sleepy Hollow to investigate a string of murders where the victims have been decapitated. Crane’s reason is tested again and again as he discovers that the murderer is a headless horseman that takes the victim’s heads with him and terrorizes the community. This movie kept me wondering what the reason behind the killings were. The ending surprised me even more, and I absolutely loved it.

Parents should be warned that it is a very gory movie, and while I think it can be agreed upon that it could easily be a PG-13 movie for younger kids to watch, I would make sure kids younger than 12 are not in the room while you watch it. I think this movie is one of the better scary movies out there. Its cast, production, and set up was top notch. I give this movie five out of five Cardinal heads.
