How many different cuts exist of that movie? AFAIK I have two different versions on DVD… One is about 90 minutes, the other about 100 minutes. I always theught that covered all version…

Ah… Misread your answer, somehow my brain deleted a ‘not’ while reading…

I have three versions of HALLOWEEN (1978).

  1. The 1978 theatrical cut (widescreen and fullscreen).

  2. The 1999 extended cut (about 10 mins longer in widescreen).

  3. The 1981 TV edit (fullscreen) is cut for violence & language, but has the added scenes filmed during/after(?) production of HALLOWEEN II (1981), to fill out the running time.

Exclusive to this TV edit are two extra title cards and two alternate takes:

Two new title cards appear in succession, which reads: “Smith’s Grove, Illinois” and “May 1st 1964”, are placed at the beginning of the new extended scene featuring Dr Loomis and the two psychiatrists.

Laurie discovering the bodies of her two friends in the wardrobe.

Laurie telling the two children to go next door and call the police.

Do you think you could upload the best version of the theatrical cut that you have
