“It revels in the ideas of the movie, it has a philosophy on its own subjects, not just trying to milk the opportunities for a scare,” Øvredal explains. “It’s also extremely close to the characters. You get to know and care for them, so you quickly fear for them. I think the filmmaking is really clever, visually stimulating, and tells the story with a surprising amount of humor, that only adds to the horror and sense of reality.”
This masterful retelling of Washington Irving’s masterpiece will meet your every expectation. Everyone loves a ghostly, spooky tale about things that go bump in the night—especially when the tale is full of good humor and beloved characters. The lanky, comedic school teacher, Ichabod Crane, pits himself against the athletic “jock”, Brom Bones as they vie for the attention of the lovely, mysterious, wealthy Katrina Van Tassel. And of course the spooky specter at the bottom of all the mysterious happenings is the Headless Horseman himself who will make a guest appearance onstage.
