The Hollow

Synopsis: Restless spirits stir this Hollow's Eve, beckoning Ian Cranston, the last blood relative of Ichabod Crane, back to Sleepy Hollow. Thundering hooves unleash a wave of bone-chilling screams as the ghost of the Headless Horseman rides again! Ian must try to save the town and his girlfriend, Karen and determine whether the sword-wielding stalker is their clownish classmate, Brody in costume, or the dark rider himself. If it's truly the Headless Horseman... how do you kill what's already dead?

This is a ghost story.

But this ghost story is | different from all the others.

It's different, | because this one is all true.

I know because I was there.

It all happened right here, | in this very town.

Across the bridge, | over by the old graveyard.

It was All Hollow's Eve.

Or what people like to call | Halloween.

It all happened down there...

in the hollow.

Now on this particular evening | there's a party going on...

at the home of a wealthy man | named Baltus Van Tassel.

The town's folk came | from all over to celebrate.

And among these revelers...

was a new school master, | Ichabod Crane.

This blows.

Knock it off! | I'm trying to hear this.

It's kinda creepy, | if you think about it.

It's kinda lame, | if you think about it.

Some people say that | he often resembled...

a crane while walking | through town.

- Karen, let's go. | - You can go, but I'm staying.

Finally able to court the beautiful | young daughter of its host...

Katrina Van Tassel.

Guys, can't we do this | tomorrow night?

Tomorrow night is the hayride.

Besides, you said you wanted a | scare, right? I'll give you one.

What, are you scared?

It's not that. It's wrong to jump | on someone's grave.

And there's that | creep groundskeeper guy.

She's got a point there.

Remember when we got stuck | in there, in third grade?

He was just trying to scare us.

The dude chased us with an ax. | Who does that?

I'll tell you what. | We go up...

put our hand in, | and we'll call it a night.

What's the big deal | with all of this anyways?

The big deal is that you, Karen | and everybody else around here...

take the legacy of this town | for granted.

You act like it's just | another place in the map.

You're drunk.

But it's not just | another place in the map.

This is the birth place...

of the most famous ghost story | that ever was.

You're hurting me.

This should be the end-all, | be-all of Halloween.

But what do we got | to show for it?

A junior boy storyteller...

and a hooky hayride.

Scott, could you please get | this gorilla off me?

Hey, let her go man.

I'll tell you what.

All it'd take is one bad | Halloween.

Like maybe three kids...

going to a graveyard...

and only one comes back.

Then people would know...

then they would know what | kind of town we live in.

Go stick you hand then.


You heard me. | You go do it.

See if anything grabs you

Show us how it's done.

That's the spirit.

See? Nothing.

Oh my God! | Oh God, please help me!


It's fun. Where are you going? | It was just a joke.

Where are you going?

You guys be careful out there. | And remember...

- if you see the horseman... | - Make through the bridge.

And as Ichabod recalls | the horrible warning...

he kicked, whipped and yelled | at his horse...

urging it to go faster.

The headless horseman | was just behind him.

Sparks flew from the hooves | of the rider's unholy steed.

And Ichabod looked up...

and through the trees he could see | the bridge.

Ichabod and his horse dashed | across the bridge.

The headless horseman | just behind him.

Ichabod chanced to look back...

expecting to see | the fearful apparition gone.

But instead...

he saw the horseman | stand up in his stirrups...

cough back his arm that held | the rider's bloody head...

with gore and guts still | clinging to the skull...

and he fired the hideous missile.

And that was the last that anyone | ever saw of the new schoolmaster.

Some say that Ichabod actually | escaped from the horseman.

And left Sleepy Hollow to become | a lawyer in New York.

Not far from here.

While others say that it's Brom | who chased him out of town...
