Ichabod Crane is sent to Sleepy Hollow to investigate the decapitations of three people, with the culprit being the legendary apparition, The Headless Horseman.
Liam Neeson, Brad Pitt, and Daniel Day-Lewis were all considered for the role of Ichabod Crane.
Yes I think you loved me that day when you followed me into the Western Woods... to have braved such peril.
The closing credits thank "The Town of Hertsfordshire". The correct spelling is Hertfordshire (commonly abbreviated to "Herts"), and Hertfordshire is not a town, it is a county. There is a town but it is just called Hertford.
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.
To get a "Not under 12" rating the German version was cut for violence. The uncut version was released on video/DVD and is rated "Not under 16".
