Alternative Cuts: John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’

One new feature I love over at Davis DVD is called ‘Alternative Cuts’, where they display and explain alternate versions of movies. Today they posted an amazing feature on John Carpenter’s classic Halloween. In 1980 Carpenter and producer Debra Hill wrote and filmed twelve minutes of new footage for the NBC broadcast during the production of the sequel Halloween II. If you click here you can read more about it and check out stills from the new scenes. In the classic 1978 film a psychotic murderer institutionalized since childhood escapes on a mindless rampage while his doctor chases him through the streets.
