Sleepy Hollow - Crossing the River
When Brom and Ichabod are figting the horseman they run across the covered bridge and the horseman follows them. In a grand majority of legends (including the original story the movie is based on) such creatures are unable to cross over running water.

They butchered the story enough already, why not throw in an extra molestation on the original?

This movie was a re-invisionment. True that in most folk tales, evil spirits cannot cross running water, however in a lot of current movies that has either been ignored or has become one of those "rules" that actually is not true when the monster/spirit is "real", for instance like how the rules for vampires change with just about every movie except for a few core ones. As I was saying, this movie is a retelling of the original, it does not try to reproduce the original, as with Burton's newest film, Planet of the Apes. So this isn't really a mistake as the running water isn't a set rule.
