Jeff Goldblum plays the bumbling, skeptical schoolteacher Ichabod Crane in this faithful adaptation of Washington Irving's most popular tale.
When Crane arrives in the quaint town of Sleepy Hollow, he discovers his predecessor was driven mad by evil spirits. Not one to believe in ghosts, Ichabod takes a personal interest in the "Headless Horseman" who terrorizes the townspeople with his midnight runs. In one hair-raising encounter after another, Ichabod meets the demon head-on (so to speak) and discovers the truth behind the legend. The Timid teacher is soon transformed from laughing-stock to town hero in this gothic tale of early America.
Starring Jeff Goldblum, Dick Butkus, Meg Foster, and Paul Sand.
