The Hollow

A present-day sequel with a descendant of Ichabod who is supposed to be 16 but looks 26. There are times when this isn't much more than another young adult horror film, with a lot of predictable scenes, but it's still fun for fans of the story, since the writers clearly read the original text enough to throw in some in-jokes (such as setting the scene in Knickerbocker High School).

With better sets, a higher budget and some revisions to the plot and script, this could have been a real corker of a movie. There have been surprisingly few sequels to Legend of Sleepy Hollow over the years. As it stands, though, it's just one of those made-for-tv movies that seem to be made to be forgotten.

Note: this wins the prize for the cheesiest looking Horseman by a longshot.
