This is the official Sleepy Hollow Prayer, yeah I was bored.

Our father who art in Sleepy Hollow
Hallowed be thy name
Thy decapitation will come
on earth as it is in the tree of the death
give us our daily need of Ichabod Crane
and forgive us our squeamishness
as we forgive those who always faints
Save us from the Headless Horseman
And deliver us from torture
For Ichabod Crane, Katrina van Tassel, Young Masbath now and forever

Amen

I wake up on a pile of leaves. I decide to find out where I am. So, I start walking on the path that appears out of nowhere, and as i do, Ichabod Crane runs towards me! I ask him what the problem is and hi says, "Please, you have to help me! My friends were all beheaded by the headless horseman! He is coming for us next, we have to hide!" Just as I start to lead him back where I came from, the path disappears, leaving us completely helpless! Then, the headless horseman decapitates Ichabod and turns to come after ME!!!! I duck in time to evade his bloody sword. Just as he's about to get me, I hear a shriek, and I wake up to find that not only am I screaming, but the headless horseman is in my room!!! Then, I really wake up screaming.

- Johnny Depp reportedly based his portrayal of Ichabod Crane on Withnail, from Withnail and I (1987), as played by Richard E. Grant.

- The scene where Ichabod Crane crosses the covered bridge and hears the frogs underneath croaking "Ichabod" and "Headless Horseman" is a tribute to Disney's 1949 animated version of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" in which Ichabod Crane, crossing a bridge, hears the frogs croaking the same words. Director Tim Burton, a former Disney animator, has cited the Disney version of the tale as his main inspiration for the look and style of his film. The scene of Ichabod Crane riding the Horseman's horse backwards is also taken from the earlier film.

- Christopher Walken, who plays the Headless Horseman, played a schoolteacher in The Dead Zone, in the beginning of which he tells his class to read "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

- Christopher Lee and Ian McDiarmiad also star together as Sith Lords in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones. Ray Park, who played Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace is the stunt double for the Headless Horseman.

Quotes from Johnny Depp:

"I always thought Roddy [McDowall] had such an interesting gift, just great presence, great delivery. He was an interesting actor, one of those guys who was very individual. Angela Lansbury was a great inspiration. I loved how she was in Death on The Nile. I found her fascinating. These two were the most inspirational characters. Maybe a little bit of Basil Rathbone, but a lot more girlie."
--Johnny Depp
The Guardian, Dec. 17, 1999

"Tim and I thought our aim was to make him [Ichabod] much closer to the book, and even go a little further. I've tried to make him prissy, you know, kind of prissy, almost like a nervous pre-teen girl. He's very squeamish when it comes to seeing a corpse, or when he sees a bug he's kind of ... euuhhh, it freaks him out."
--Johnny Depp
The Guardian, Dec. 17, 1999

"My initial idea was to go with some prosthetics, you know, and do a sort of snipe nose of Ichabod Crane, the legendary Ichabod Crane. And the big ears and the long hands and arms and stuff... Tim, in fact, was very smart in thinking that we didn't need it, you know, in that there...

Sleepy Hollow is a 1999 period horror film directed by Tim Burton, interpreting the legend of The Headless Horseman and based loosely around the Washington Irving story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The third film collaboration between Johnny Depp and Burton, the film also features Christina Ricci, Michael Gambon, Miranda Richardson, Casper Van Dien, Jeffrey Jones, Ian McDiarmid, Michael Gough, Richard Griffiths and Christopher Walken. The story centers on police constable Ichabod Crane sent from New York City to investigate a series of murders in the village Sleepy Hollow by a mysterious Headless Horseman. The style and themes of the story take inspirations from the late Hammer Film Productions.

Sleepy Hollow had been in development since 1994 and was originally intended to be directed by Kevin Yagher. The film labored into development far enough for Burton to direct, who had unsuccessfully worked on Superman Lives. Filming took place entirely on location in England where the crew built an entire soundstage. Sleepy Hollow would be released with box office success and critical acclaim, grossing roughly $206 million worldwide and scoring a 73 percent approval rating at...

The story is set circa 1790 in the Dutch settlement of Tarry Town, New York, in a secluded glen called Sleepy Hollow. It tells the story of Ichabod Crane, a lanky schoolmaster from Connecticut, who competes with Abraham "Brom Bones" Van Brunt, the town rowdy, for the hand of 18-year-old Katrina Van Tassel, only daughter of a wealthy farmer. As Crane leaves a party at the Van Tassel home on an autumn night, he is pursued by the Headless Horseman, supposedly the ghost of a Hessian trooper who lost his head to a cannonball during "some nameless battle" of the American Revolutionary War, and who "rides forth to the scene of battle in nightly quest of his head." Crane disappears from town, leaving Katrina to marry Brom Bones, who was "to look exceedingly knowing whenever the story of Ichabod was related."
