Though it may sound like damning with faint praise to call this edit of Suicide Squad "astonishly coherent," anyone who has seen the original cut will know that Wakeupkeo has...

By far the best version of this classic slasher I've seen. The seamlessly added scenes flesh out the heretofore-rushed first act, lending character weight to all parties, especially Loomis but...

A terrific improvement on/extension of what was already one of the great comic book movies. Fantastic work! Thanks for doing this!

This is an utterly fantastic concept for a fan-edit and I applaud wakeupkeo for it! WW84 was sorely lacking in period appeal and this remedies that to a large extent....

One of the better entries of the recent spate of DC movies is made even stronger thanks to very judicious editing out of exposition and forced humour. The charm of...

While the original was, to my mind, an overlong and mishandled mess of a film with enormous charm to spare, this edit gets a lot closer to the period charm...

For a movie that can't decide if it wants to be a misanthropic throwback to the 50s sci-fi movies, a ZAZ-style parody or a 70s celebrity-strewn disaster pic, this edit...
