13 Days of Halloween Horror -- Day Seven


Today's pick might not be full of scares, but this modern retelling of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow is certainly appropriate for Halloween. Like all of Tim Burton's movies, Sleepy Hollow is visually beautiful with his signature mix of quirky and macabre. From the lovely leads, Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci, to the headless horseman, to the mysterious woods inhabited by spooky trees and crones, you'll find plenty to capture your attention. If that isn't enough, there's an all star cast that includes Christopher Walken, Christopher Lee, Jeffery Jones, Miranda Richardson, Michael Gambon, and Ian McDiarmid, amongst others. And Burton's long time music collaborator, Danny Elfman, adds that final bit of magic with his fantastic score.

And remember, you can find all your favorite horror movies at the library. Check back here every day for staff recommendations of their favorite horror movies.
