Eagerly awaited, we have finally been able to uncover some information about Sleepy Hollow. The movie that has just recevied three Academy Award nominations this morning is well underway for a release on DVD. Paramount Home Video is preparing Tim Burton’s latest masterpiece about the headless horseman day and date on VHS and DVD on May 23. Although this will be the movie’s DVD debut, the folks at Paramount have decided to give the movie the royal treatment as a special edition. Apart from a 16×9 enhanced widescreen transfer and a 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track, from what we hear, the disc will be chock-full with supplements, including a commentary track by Tim Burton himself!
Given the stunning visual quality of the movie and its excellent use of special effects to create the moody atmosphere of Sleepy Hollow, we are sure, the supplements on the disc will make a great addition to the disc and as soon as we learn more about the exact content of the disc, we will let you know. For now, just mark May 23 in your calendar for the release of the best horror film of 1999!
