Sleepy Hollow is a 1999 movie, inspired by the short story by Washington Irving, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It starred Johnny Depp, Christina Ricci, Casper Van Dien and Christopher Walken. Ray Park played the Horseman in the headless fight scenes.

The Fandom

Popular pairings include Ichabod/Katrina, Ichabod/Horseman, and Ichabod/Brom.

allaire mikháil wrote in her introduction to fandom on her rec page about the approach the fandom took with the Ichabod/Horseman slash pairing:
Sleepy Hollow was a movie I went to see in the cinema, but didn't expect to ever spend another thought on. Until I saw that there was actually slash fan fiction out there, pairing Ichabod Crane and the Hessian. My first reaction was disgust (I just had to recall the filed, pointed teeth of the Horseman and I went "argh"), then I was intrigued. Could it actually be done - pairing those two, with a good story as the result? To my neverending surprise, it is possible - ZzoaozZ and later Laylah proved it. Ichabod Crane might be the proverbial innocent, but his past (and his mother) give him just that tiny little flaw that, if properly explored, offers a target that can connect him to magic - and, in particular, the Horseman. Due to his methods and his childhood, Ichabod already stands at the fringe of society, and what if Katrina didn't prove to be enough of a safety anchor? If he fell, who would catch him?[1]
