I love what the original movie did for horror movies, but to watch it now (as much as I hate to say it) I’m kinda board… I have a lot of respect for this movie, but I felt that the 2018 packs more punch (and stabs). So the intention here is to get more tension built up in this and add a few more deaths to try and make the 2 movies feel more in line with one another. I actually did this edit the weekend after I finished Star Wars -Redux., so it’s finished
So aside from some trimming to move things at a faster pace, I replace how Michael come back to Haddonfield buy using Halloween 4’s escape. To explain the bandages on his face and and why he wanted the mask from the store I used the film footage from the Zombie version that has Loomis talking about Michael needing a mask and hiding behind them. This also fits with the 2018 movie as to why he refuses to show his face without a mask there as well. The last thing I did was add the street scene from Halloween 2 as the start of the killing spree in this so we can get moving sooner (with what I personally came to see when I watch these movies). I removed any references to people talking about what happened in Halloween 1 so it all flows.
