Halloween: The TV Terror Cut
The TV Terror Cut is an attempt to add back these scenes from the TV cut into the feature film to created the longest version of Halloween.
Halloween - 2 Disc Special Edition (1999): Title card placement and some audio transitions borrowed from here (as the TV cut was included on disc 2)
- TV Footage Restoration Comparison
- Added Loomis talking to a 'comatose' young Michael about fooling the doctors, but not him
- Added Loomis looking at the room where Michael was held in the sanatorium and managed to escape.
- Added Laurie's friend coming over and talking about the guy that was following them
Even though I watched this edit as my first viewing of Halloween, it is safe to say it will stay my definitive version. The added scenes flow seamlessly and perfectly transition into the second film.
A nice upgrade from my Anchor Bay DVD keep up the good work!
I compared this side-by-side with my Anchor Bay DVD of the TV version and this edit is a massive improvement. The change in quality from theatrical to TV scenes is noticeable, but not jarringly so. A no-brainer upgrade since I watch this version every October.
