Old people whimper, and cry, and belch, and make great hollow rumbling sounds at table; old people wake up in the middle of the night screaming, and find out they haven’t even been asleep; and when old people are asleep, they try to wake up, and they can’t… not for the longest time.
Edward Albee
Turkey Hollow is a small country town in Sullivan County, a remote region of the Catskill Mountains. Surrounded by forests, it counts 10 full-time residents, has no mail service, and no cell phone reception. However, what it lacks in amenities, it compensates for in sheer natural wonder.

Webs are made mostly of spaces. They break easily. They barely exist. They belong to the category of half-things: mist, smoke, shrouds, ghosts, membranes, retinas or rags; and they quickly fill up with un-things: old legs and wings and heads and hollow abdomens and body bags of wasps.

If you come on the set of ‘Sleepy Hollow,’ and you go, ‘So, is this a ‘Once Upon a Time’ spinoff?’ That’s right when we start slappin’ people. It’s right then. Now if you came on the set, and you were like, ‘I like this show. It kinda reminds me of ‘Supernatural,” that gets you a high five.

Paul Verhoeven
I’m a huge ‘Nightmare before Christmas’ fan, but that was also Henry Selick. I’m a really big fan of ‘Sleepy Hollow.’ I love ‘Big Fish,’ too, which is a bit different. There’s a really cool era of early-Burton stuff like ‘Ed Wood’ that I’m a big fan of.

Joy Reid
I’ve buried six Guardian Angels who have been shot and killed in the line of duty. I was stalked myself, had a gunman go pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, pow, five hollow point bullets, God save me. What do you think this is? This isn’t Zimmerman. But unfortunately, he’s become the face of Block Watch, Crime Watch.
Curtis Sliwa
When my kids were toddlers, they had all these rotomolded plastic things. My life became surrounded by big, hollow plastic toys – from the scale of playhouses down to rocking horses, and everything in between – which we would then take to the secondhand store. But we’d get sentimentally attached and hate to see them go.
