Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of 3 people with the culprit being the legendary apparition, the Headless Horseman.
When the opening credits role, Christopher Lee's name is credited, despite his only scene having passed before the credits even start.
Lady Van Tassel:
The easiest part was the first. To enter your house as your mother's sick-nurse and put her body into the grave and my own into the marriage bed.
(at around 53 mins) When Thomas Killian is spinning the lantern with cut out shapes, the lit up shapes on the walls are spinning in the other direction.
The opening credits - shown over Ichabod's travel to Sleepy Hollow - interact with the landscape: if Ichabod's coach is near a river, the words are reflected on the surface of the water; if he's in a forest the letters drift away like dead leaves, and so on.
