Release Year: 1999

Director: Tim Burton

Starring: Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, Miranda Richardson

A Tim Burton directed film had to make an appearance on this list at some point. Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is sent by the police in New York City to the town of Sleepy Hollow to gather information and evidence involving unsolved murders.

The Headless Horseman has traditionally been a scary figure in folklore. The Horseman is just as scary in the film with the way Burton masterfully portrays him. Watching the Horseman eventually ride into hell is part of a fulfilling ending.

Not only does the film star Johnny Depp but also has lead actress Christina Ricci. Perhaps Depp and Ricci are perfect picks for a new age twist on a horror classic. Sleepy Hollow was a big box office hit.
