Today Chloe Moretz, who plays Carolyn Stoddard in the film, chimes in to Movies.com about her character and the film’s tone, “Oh, Carolyn, that’s a fun character. That’s a really fun character. She is crazy. She is this teenager, like 15-year-old hippie who is into The Carpenters and Alice Cooper. She’s super music-y and raw, like free love, you know. She’s fun. I can’t say much because he has a really dark secret I can’t tell you… It’s Tim Burton so it’s like ‘Beetlejuice’. I have to say it’s a mixture of ‘Beetlejuice’, a teeny bit of ‘Sweeney’ and the scariness of ‘Sweeney’ but the fun of ‘Sleepy Hollow’ with the scariness of ‘Sleepy Hollow’. I’d definitely say it’s a lot like ‘Sleepy Hollow’ because you go from the Ichabod Crane character to the Headless Horseman who’s comedic and yet terrifying. It straddles that fine line of camp and drama so it’s like a drama horromedy thriller”
