Brief Synopsis:
The 1978 Edit really aims to take Rob Zombie's Halloween and make it closer in tone to its predecessor. The entire white trash family angle is gone, Michael never speaks as a child, and both the gore and language have really been toned down. The pacing is very lean and tight. Almost the entire movie has been rescored with a lot of music coming from the soundtrack to Halloween 2018.
I remember how excited I was to see Halloween 2007 in theaters. The trailers looked incredible and I loved the look of the mask. 10 minutes in, I almost walked out. I'd never been so let down by a Halloween movie and we're talking about a series that has Halloween: Resurrection. My original goal to doing Halloween edits was to take movies in the series I absolutely hated watching and fashion versions of them I could actually enjoy. I don't want to limit the number of Halloween sequels I can throw on on a rainy day. Hopefully other Halloween fans out there can do the same!

Music from Halloween (1978 and 2018) as well as Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.
