May Monster Madness: Day 4
The Hessian/The Headless Horseman in Sleepy Hollow
Another favourite movie of mine is Sleepy Hollow (1999), so for Day 4 of May Monster Madness, my "monster" is the Hessian/Headless Horseman (Christopher Walken).
In Tim Burton's re-imagining of Washington Irving's short story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is a young police officer sent to investigate slayings in the New York hamlet of Sleepy Hollow. Ichabod discovers that the ghost of a Hessian mercenary, who takes the form of a Headless Horseman, is terrorizing the village.
