Tim Burton fan Zoe Butcher has a Hollow pick for tonight’s viewing…

What is it: Sleepy Hollow (1999)

When is it: Film4, 10:55pm

When scientifically-minded policeman, Ichabod Crane, is sent to the little town of Sleepy Hollow to investigate the recent spate of decapitations he discovers that the perpetrator is most likely a headless horseman raised from the grave to kill people. So, not your normal episode of CSI then…

Sleepy Hollow might nowadays be a fabulously bonkers TV show on Fox but, in 1999, it was a brilliant film starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton. If you’ve yet to see this version then I urge you to give it a try. It’s Burton at his gothic best and the excellent supporting cast give it their all, with Michael Gambon hamming it up in epic fashion as the delightfully named Baltus Van Tassel. Heads will roll.

 

Watch it for: Because the horseman comes, and tonight he comes for you! Oooer.
