Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is an eighteenth century New York City police detective despised by his colleagues.  An early practitioner of forensic science, Crane refuses to rely upon hunches or superstitions to identify culprits.  Other officers grow tired of Ichabod's methodical approach, and send him upstate to the rural village of Sleepy Hollow as punishment.

In Sleepy Hollow residents insist that a headless horseman roams its forests decapitating innocent victims, though the detective rejects the claim immediately.  Depp's character can no longer dismiss the community's claims after witnessing the Headless Horseman himself, especially after the villain tosses a victim's decapitated head in Ichabod's direction.

Sleepy Hollow was awarded an Oscar and nominated for an MTV Movie Award and a Teen Choice Award.  The film was a commercial success, earning $207 million at the box office, tripling its $70 million budget.
