Sleepy Hollow

 (1999)

Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Master storyteller Tim Burton (Batman, Edward Scissorhands) weaves an eerie, enchanting version of this classic tale of horror. Johnny Depp is Ichabod Crane, an eccentric investigator determined to stop the murderous Headless Horseman. Christina Ricci is Katrina Van Tassel, the beautiful and mysterious girl with secret ties to the supernatural terror.

For more about Sleepy Hollow and the Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray release, see Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, Miranda Richardson, Michael Gambon, Casper Van Dien, Michael Gough

Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Sleepy Hollow's 1080p MPEG-2 transfer finds the town immersed in a swirling layer of grain that covers every surface, and while this sometimes lends to the early horror film atmosphere, it does often detract from detail and overall sharpness. In one close-up of Christina Ricci, the grain—perhaps coupled with digital noise; it's honestly hard to tell—made it difficult to make out the borders of her lips. The plentiful tree limbs are also a good crispness test, and the film has inconsistent levels of sharpness that, while noticeably better than the DVD, don't exactly sing Blu-ray's praises. Despite the sometimes-soft appearance, I still found myself enjoying the grit of the film, as it does enhance the oppressive gloom that fills the sullen vale of Sleepy Hollow.

The film's most defining and tone-setting characteristic, however, is its extremely stylized color scheme. Grays and browns rule the desaturated image, while red accents—the rose on Katrina's cloak, the cardinal, and of course, the ample blood—burst forth vividly. Skin tones, in allegiance with Burton's gothic sensibilities, are pearly and luminescent. Black levels do crush detail in darker scenes, but it's hard to tell how much of this is transfer-related, and how much is due to intent. As a final thought, while it may have been state-of-the-art for its day, Sleepy Hollow's CGI doesn't hold up against more modern offerings, and the film looks best when it confines itself to practical effects.


Sleepy Hollow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Fortunately for you readers, Sleepy Hollow's Dolby Digital 5.1 track is neither sleepy nor hollow, and I don't feel the slightest need to resort to any unfunny puns. The mix is clean and clear, with an open, expressive mid-range and detailed highs. Gunshots, horse hooves, and thunder all have sufficient low-end thud, though a slight boost in bass prowess could give the track some added dimensionality. Danny Elfman's commanding score assaults from all sides, with bells that toll ominously and brash horns that herald evil's presence. Many scenes features spooky sound-design, like the covered bridge sequence, and there some well-placed instances of sound panning and image tracking, but this is a largely front-bolstered track, and the rear channels are mostly confined to score and leftover ambience. If Paramount ever goes for a double-dip with Sleepy Hollow, I would be interested in hearing if a lossless track would improve the film's dynamic range.
