Brief Synopsis:
This ALL NEW CUT combines several HALLOWEEN sequels featuring Laurie Strode into one Complete Sequel Epic from 1978-2002.
Intention:
Using footage from three sequels and the extended cut of HALLOWEEN, the Laurie Strode story has been expanded and remixed into one epic film. The story still picks up directly from the end of HALLOWEEN and concludes Michael Myers’ night of horror, then jumps forward twenty years later as Laurie prepares for his return. A new soundtrack has been created with original tracks by John Carpenter from HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN III. Additional scenes of Dr. Loomis from the extended television version of HALLOWEEN have been added as flashbacks. This new cut is designed as a direct sequel to the theatrical version of HALLOWEEN.

Editing Details:
In order to retain the original John Carpenter score, several scenes now contain no sound effects. When possible, some scenes have been re-looped with new sound effects.

The JOHN CARPENTER REMIX SOUNDTRACK is designed to give the sequel the same sound and feel as the original film, reprising several musical cues.

The ORIGINAL “MR. SANDMAN” PURIST SOUNDTRACK is for those who do prefer the original music by John Carpenter, Alan Howarth, John Ottman and Danny Lux.

There are a few continunity issues when trying to speed up a few kills.

Some hospital characters appear, then dissappear. They are now killed off screen.

Footage from the Extended Television Version from FIFTEEN YEARS EARLIER with Loomis have been added as flashbacks, a la THE GODFATHER PART II.

The RESURRECTION scenes with Laurie Strode are now included as a dream sequence.

Several character visual flash memory sequences have been layered into the narrative using clips from all HALLOWEEN films.

This was enjoyable, but fairly forgettable. It couldn't help but feel like 2 movies pasted together, instead of being a "Complete Sequel Epic".
