One of the first edits I even watched. This is the one that got me into it and to eventually become an editor myself. The narrative makes sense and all of the associated changes make sense. The editor did a fantastic job of muting the music and keeping the dialogue in certain scenes. This is the ultimate version if you want to skip the thorn additions of H5.
This is definitely the best version of Halloween 5, and it’s fanmade how ironic isn’t that? Take that Hollywood. Long live FE!
I grew up watching the theatrical cut so I guess it has some kind of a nostalgic value for me, even the bad stuff, but oh man what a difference some editing can do. What really got me excited reading the cut-list was the choice you made to digital remove Michael’s mask while he’s behind bar. And watching the fanedit I most say it worked perfect. Also a lot of characters/scenes are now more tolerable than before (read: Tine/cops/stuttering reta…ehh…kid) and getting rid of Thorn was needed because it was never needed to begin with (confused?) Now I’m waiting for a H6 – Thornless edition (aka H6 – Enough of this Michael Myers bullshit)
I checked this version of Halloween 5 out and really liked it, and that’s coming from someone who wasn’t a fan at all of this. When I decide to have my yearly Halloween marathon, this is definitely going to be in place of my VHS copy of the original Halloween 5.
