"This is a pretty stinky (...), even if you're someone like me who generally appreciates homegrown horror films on zero budgets. The concept of a Headless Horsemen masked slasher stalking kids at Sleepy Hollow High had promise and certainly interested me enough to purchase the DVD. Sadly, this film seems to wallow in its ineptitude. Since I could tell the crew only had one good light to use, I was terrified that the plot was leading up to night scenes for the climax. My fears came to life as everything became too dark to see and actors spent whole scenes standing in the only available light without being able to move. The documentary and commentary didn't do much to improve my respect for the director, who spends most of the documentary wearing a woman's dress and acting silly. He seems to be trying to imitate either Trey Parker or Ed Wood (or both), but manages to make both look like incredible artists by comparison. Beware!"

"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has been told on the screen time and again, and in many different forms, but I must say that this is a first. In the era of "Dawson's Creek" and "Felicity", independent film makers have taken the truely scary concept of the hesdless horseman and turned it into a 90-minute teen soap, complete with bad acting and choppy plot. To stay well within the boundaries of teen soap-ville, USA, all of the important storyline factors apply: who is sleeping with who? who is pregnant? a teen, commit suicide because he boyfriend dumped her? It's like the film makers are addicted the the "Creek", because every plot twist is torn straight from the television series. To make things worse, a little bit of "Scream" and a whole lot of "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is thrown in as well. Add in the cheap look of the film, and cheesy soundtrack, and you're in B-movie heaven. 2 stars, and that's being generous."
Definitely worth looking at

"This movie wasn't advertised at all, but when I found it, I thought it looked interesting. I''ve always been interested in cheesy horror flicks, especially when there isn't a high budget. This was a strong cast, with strong performances and good looks which always helps. Plus, I really enjoyed the special features. I hope to see more of these young stars, Shannon and Z were my favorites."

"I can't believe $17,000.00 was spent on this piece of tripe. WHERE DID THE MONEY GO??? This movie had bad acting, bad lighting, BAD SOUND, bad camera work, bad editing with the same establishing shots shown over and over and over again in nothing more than a lame attempt to get the running time to feature length.
I have seen movies made with NO BUDGET that are extremely high quality and entertaining.
I'd be embarassed to have my name in the credits of this turkey."
Worse acting than a Mentos commercial.

"If you've read any of my other reviews, you know I love low budget horror. Unfortunately, this train wreck of a movie is so bad that it isn't even funny. The camera shots are often so dark that you can't tell what is going on. There is one decent killing where big streams of blood squirts from a body like a Monty Python movie, but otherwise there is nothing here to even keep your attention. Negligible gore, no nudity, horrible acting, awful camera work, no originality...... I could go on. I honestly can say that I haven't fast forwarded through very many movies, but after 45 minutes of this stuff I did and you will too! Stay away from this steamer!"
