Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow is a movie that checks all the columns of gothic horror which is in part helped by Elfman's epic score. The soundtrack perfectly compliments the themes of the movie with bits of haunting vocalizations mixed with music to inspire dread within your heart.
Burton and Elfman collaborate repeatedly together when making films, and maybe that's because the composer knows how to perfectly evoke the imagery and the emotions of the scenes. For example, any time The Headless Horseman appears,Elfman gives the scene the pomp and circumstance it deserves in such a way even though he is a man to be feared, he also demands respect as well.
This is one of those soundtracks that have withstood the tests of times because it was so well crafted. You don't find ones like this too often. Plus if you are looking to create that perfect gothic ambiance, this soundtrack serves as a perfect accompaniment. Definitely well worth checking out if you have yet to do so.
Till next time, stay safe and Happy Horrordays!! -Tha Thrilla-
