Greetings Faithful Followers ,
This is your old pal Brother Jack Angry, I wanted to take a moment to give props to a really great organization that I am proud to be a part of The Horror Congress this group of people are based all across the country and they deal with everything horror, classic horror, scream queen, zombie etc the list goes on and on. Periodicly the "reps" which I am one of two from nebraska are supposed to write a review on a subject horror related I have done several reviews on new release horror movies.
So without further ado I present my review on Sleepy Hollow the Tv series
Ichabod Crane returns to life after 220 years in the grave to stop his nemesis The Headless Horseman. He is aided by sherrifs deputy and would be FBI agent Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie ) who is assisting Crane to avenge the death of town sherrif August Corbin (Clancy Brown) who was beheaded by the Headless Horseman.
The cast includes Orlando Jones as Capt Frank Irving who initially does believe the supernatural turn of events that are taking place with the series of beheading in little town of Sleepy Hollow. The series also costars Harold and Kumar star John Cho as deputy Andy Ross who as it turns out is in leauge with the dark forces at work in Sleepy Hollow, he later meets a grisly end at the hands of the mysterious puppet master who seems to be working behind the scenes .
This episode does an excellent job of setting the scenes for the coming supernatural battles that Ichabod and Abbie will face, the flavor of the series is reminiscent of SUPERNATURAL before we got into all the angelic stuff monsters witches and demons aplenty here. I'm expecting the series to go for more than the customary 7 seasons that many series seem to be programed for. The interactions between the main characters of Mison, Beharie, and Jones is solid.
The Headless Horseman is sufficiently bad ass and unstoppable to make this well worth watching and to help kill the boredom of a Monday night. I just hope that he does no become an indestructable Jason Vorehees or Freddy Krueger . The only real downside is that these episondes were only an hour long and that will fly by very quickly leaving you wondering what your going to do for the rest of the weeik until the show is back on again.
My only issue was with the abrupt departures of 2 very character actors Clancy Brown and John Cho a sad development but they did set the stage for future events in a very excellent fashion so no disappointments here.
The Characters of Ichabod, Abbie and Capt Irving were well done and the interactions between them progressed as you might imagine in this story. The wonder and terror felt by Crane at being thrust into the modern world gives the character a sympathy you cant help rooting for even when he outfoxes the police.
I will give this episode a tentative 4 out of 5 Reggies with a potential of 5 Reggies if it continues along these lines, a really great effort
I hope you enjoy this review faithful followers
