  • Mike Clark

    This is a very bloody fantasy (reds do eke their way into the black-and-blues), but it's hard to think of another film with as many severed heads whose overall tone is so sweet.

    Variety Full Review
  • Marc Caro

    Visually sumptuous and playfully creepy.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Lots of brilliant filmmaking and high-spirited acting, at least until the story turns repetitious and formulaic in the last 30 minutes.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jonathan Foreman

    As a horror movie, even one inspired by the kitschy Hammer horror films of the 1950s, it's disappointing.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    There must be nine or 10 thwacks to the neck throughout Sleepy Hollow, and Burton finds a different way to make the resulting severed noggin fall as though you'd forgotten the last one.

  • Shawn Levy

    It has a dickens of a time telling a story.

  • Steve Simels

    A triumph of genre filmmaking.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The look of Burton's Gothic dream landscape, both lulling and energizing, is vested with so much power that it could almost substitute for narrative drive. Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    There's so little going on with either the film's story or its characters, however, that there is plenty of time to get lost in cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki's eerily beautiful visuals.

  • Ernest Hardy

    Even though it delivers on frights and special effects, and is well-acted and gorgeous to look at, never really surprises us. Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    More creepy and flesh-crawling than overwhelmingly gory, it nevertheless takes pride in characters who get splattered with blood as often as take-out fries get doused with catsup.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Little more than a lavish, art-directed slasher movie.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    Burton's films are endearing and impassioned despite the fact that they generally fail to tell a whole story, create a single rounded character, or inspire even mild laughs or chills.

    An uneven, if lively, diversion.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The film, though seldom sleepy, is often hollow.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Gregory Weinkauf

    Hasty pacing makes for a rich and exciting movie, but not an especially spooky or spellbinding one.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Janet Maslin

    Turns the tale of the Headless Horseman into the pre-tabloid story of a rampaging serial killer.

  • David Edelstein

    A ferocious yet lyrical piece of filmmaking--an enchanted bloodbath.

  • Rita Kempley

    In Burton's hands, Washington Irving's spooky classic is reincarnated as an overripe, grisly Goth cartoon.
