The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a tale of a superstitious schoolmaster and the headless Hessian soldier that haunts him. The legend has been told and retold over the years, inspiring countless works of art, literature, and film.

In the Hudson Valley region of New York state, Ichabod Crane competes with another for the hand of the beautiful Katrina Van Tassel. Unable to best him in by any other means, his rival Brom Bones leverages Crane's paranormal sensitivities to embarrass him and detract from his romantic pursuits.

His encounter with the legendary Headless Horseman is, however, all too real—but no one believes him. And the peril the horseman brings isn't apparent to anyone, including Ichabod, until it's too late.
