A fun story, one that is fluffy fun as long as you don't think about it too much.  Such as:  if the headless horseman has escaped from wherever he'd been confined, why is he driving a cab?  The cavalier attitude of the protagonists was a bit perplexing to me, but fun as long as I didn't try to think it through too much.  :)

This was silly fun. I, personally, loved the imagery of the headless horseman driving a cab. After all, what is the modern equivalent of a horse but a car!
