Burton continues, "[T]he R rating upsets me. I have no problem showing this to some children. When I was a kid I felt if I didn't have these [horror] movies, I don't know what I would have turned into. These movies helped me. I tried to keep Sleepy Hollow in that zone, and this is the type of movie I would have died to see [as a child]. That's what we wanted to do÷ We couldn't even put a headless horseman on the poster! I ended up making him really small, and then I was driving around town and I see this huge bus stop poster of a headless horseman for some religious TV station. It's so twisted and perverse. Kids are like adults, [s]ome kids can take it and some can't.
