First let me try to articulate because all I keep saying is “Oh my god! Oh my god!” Surely I have more words in my vocabulary. I can tell you that Sleepy Hollow truly was one of the best pilots I have ever seen. The acting was brilliant and the chemistry between Abbie (Nicole Beharie) and Ichabod (Tom Mison) was beautiful as was the cinematography and special effects.
In a nutshell, here is my review:
“Sleepy Hollow blends comedy, drama and suspense better than a strawberry milkshake from Baskin-Robbins.” ~Sheila Brothers, What’s Up in Wilmywood
And you can quote me on that! Last night was filled with crazy excitement and Regal Cinemas had a line out the door that was as longer than the Great Wall of China! People drove from Salisbury, NC where the pilot was shot, and there were many who have worked on the show in later episodes. Other folks were simply Tom fans, Orlando fans and Wilmington film fans.
Matt Born took some great shots from last night. Visit his photo gallery now!
Not only did they have some Sleepy Hollow swag, but an inside look of the show and a special guest. Orlando Jones just happened to show up with Ichabod Crane’s wife, Katrina aka Katia Winter. I will post video for you later today!
The only disappointment of the night was there were a ton of people that waited in line for a very long time and didn’t get in because it was oversold, even after Regal opened a second auditorium to accommodate the masses. But they did give out Sleepy Hollow t-shirts to those who couldn’t get in. The people who did get the chance to see the pilot, didn’t get that sweet stuff. All in all, it just proves the show has a major buzz. The television premiere is Monday, September 16th 9pm EST on FOX.
