Their scenarios, drawing on literary sources of its kind, renewed themes operated by Universal in the thirties.Inspired by the major works of dark romanticism English, these films invented the Gothic horror film, exploiting the vein until completely exhausted.Remained in the memory of all fantasticophiles the Frankenstein and Dracula series devoted their initiator, director Terence Fisher, as well as a pair of remarkable actors, Christopher Lee, best incarnation of the vampire Count on the screen, and Peter Cushing , Baron Frankenstein and Professor Van Helsing unforgettable.

Hammer, plus an independent firm, was primarily a small family business in which technicians and actors knew and found themselves one film to another. The sets and costumes vary little too, all had a characteristic pseudo-Victorian style, then copied extensively. It is this character, recognizable, that Burton so successfully reproduce in Sleepy Hollow, because he knows that if codified genre works on the mode of the mosaic. He appropriates the codes of gothic horror Hammer way: vermilion blood and dizzying necklines understood. With this exception, however, that with Sleepy Hollow has a budget of Series A when the British firm, she chained series B mowed. Sets, costumes and accessories, all beautiful, are more fantastic than historical reconstitution. Village sinister, mysterious mansion, cemetery gravestones askew, romantic ruins, leaden sky, the forest trees tortured ...

"Sleepy Hollow" is above all a book, a classic horror tale of Anglo-Saxon literature. Written by Washington Irving , he appears at the end of the 19th century.

It is also a real town, founded by a Dutch colony, located in the Hudson Valley, a few miles from New York. A region that inspired Lovecraft, but Stephen King.

Sleepy Hollow was already made ​​into a movie in 1949 by Disney Studios: "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad."It was a feature film based largely on black humor, turning some characters, Ichabod Crane to a grotesque individual and the Headless Horseman a character at once pathetic and endearing.

While Sleepy Hollow is a commissioned film, which Burton gave birth because it "was" a film the production company, it is not unless it is a jewel of Gothic horror , a tribute to the production of Hammer . Sleepy Hollow returns to the roots of a kind of proofreading such as "Interview with a Vampire" by Neil Jordan or "Bram Stoker's Dracula" by Coppola revived day. Burton is totally in a genre, it uses codes and effects but without really looking to divert.

Because, and this is certainly what distinguishes foremost, Burton is a fan. Movie fan, horror fan, and fan of Hammer Film Productions, a small British company, in the seventies, produced, sometimes to an almost industrial rhythm, dozens of fantastic films.

Three years have passed since American intervention in a civil war in Vietnam was converted into a colonial war of the classic type. This was the decision of a liberal American administration.
