Brief Synopsis:
Halloween: 10 Years of Terror tells a complete version of the Michael Myers story in a condensed fashion. Following his original massacre in 1978 and then his return in 1988, the edit simply tries to show that whether in one form or another, evil never truly dies.
I originally joined this community because, being a huge Halloween fan, I was desperate to track down Halloween: A Portrait in Terror by Last Survivor. I loved the idea of combining several Halloween sequels into one narrative. Alas, I couldn't find it (no worries, I've since found it and loved it) so I decided to create my very first fanedit. I didn't look at any cut lists so as to not skew my own ideas and I used Halloween 4 to finish out my story as opposed to Halloween: H20. The reasoning? I'm a sucker for a sad ending. I felt that H4 and H20 did a great job at closing out the Myers story, but I just chose the other road. I've gotten more skilled at fanediting since I finished my first edit of this so I decided to revisit it, clean it up, and finally release it for Halloween!
Special Thanks:
Thanks to Last Survivor for the inspiration in the first place. I've grown to love fanediting so much that I can't imagine what I would do if I didn't have it as a hobby. Thanks to jrWHAG42 and TinyBreadMouse for being supportive with poster ideas. That's definitely one aspect I still struggle with.

A wonderful attempt at combining a horror masterpiece and two of its best sequels into one exquisitely chilling package. An epic near three-hour slasher that fits ten years' worth of story and characters beautifully. Highly recommended for any Halloween fan.
