Both the movie and the book "Sleepy Hollow" are based on Washington Irving's short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." The movie, directed by Tim Burton, takes a more fantastical and gothic approach with a focus on visual style and Horror elements. The book maintains the original tone and setting of the story, with a more subtle and mysterious approach to the supernatural elements. Both interpretations capture the essence of Irving's tale but through different creative lenses.
