Despite the kids acting circles around most of their adult counterparts, I really liked this. I was worried that seeing the remake first might make this seem out dated but it mostly holds up. My biggest issue with it is casting John-Boy as BIlly or maybe it's just his pony-tail.
I watched this awhile back and just didn't feel like I "got" it. Everyone raves about it so I thought I must have missed something. Maybe with a few more years of horror appreciation under my belt I'd see something I didn't before. Turns out, I had it right the first time.
Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate parts of it like how gorgeous a film it is. The ending is fantastic but I found the first two acts…
TV and movies aimed at the tween audience is an occasional guilty pleasure of mine. This was actually entertaining and I'll be checking out the regular series. The kids use UV light tubes as lightsabers to fight the vampires, I love it!
Some of the vampires they kill are people's children, they have family. Is anyone going to wonder what happened to them?
Who better to play a live action Ichabod Crane than 80s Jeff Goldblum? This made for TV movie is pretty light on the Horseman but dammit if there isn't something so charming about it that kept me watching. The ending deviates from the original story for a more happy ending but it works for me because I really want Crane to have it.
