5.0 out of 5 stars Scary!, 24 April 2003
After Flight 549 crashes in what appears like a mid-air collision, Special Agents Fox Mulder & Dana Scully (David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, respectively) are assigned to the case and depart without more ado to examine the debris of the jet at the crash site. Mulder, for ever and a day the believer, predicts that this was work of aliens and not as everybody else says, a human error.

Based on the legendary short tale written by Washington Irving called 'The Legend of Sleepy Hollow', Tim Burton picks up his artistic pencil yet again, places a blue filter over the camera lens and regroups with chum Johnny Depp to develop his pet project into a fear-provoking movie of the headless horseman.
The year is 1799 and New York constable, Ichabod Crane is ridiculed for his abstract views on then term concerning evidence and the development of scientific substance. Sent by an ignorant Judge who deems that he is nothing other than an attention seeker, Crane finds himself in the small town of Sleepy Hollow. Petrified onlookers clutch their crucifixes from their necks as the… Read more
