A curious movie mystery

This Halloween cult picture bends reality in the true spirit of Sleepy Hollow. You can easily combine this experience with Horseman’s Hollow and Irving’s ‘Legend’!

Recommended for ages 10 and up. Contains scenes of drinking alcohol, smoking and snuff tobacco use, implied violence, and mature themes.
