David Lynch is up for doing a directors cut of Dune!!!
Time

With WEREWOLF, I think it was a mistake to show the transformation in a well-lit room. I would’ve had David, already asleep in a darkened room (instead of reading a book), waking up in pain, to the start of the transformation.

The final werewolf form is shown in quick shocking glimpses (my favourite shot of it is in the porn theatre, standing over the disembowelled theatre usher munching on his guts, when it’s interrupted by the Bobby). As with ALIEN, less is more.

Seeing the surviving outtakes of the werewolf, I can see why they were cut - the thing looks like a dog - and not some supernatural beast - “a Hound from Hell”.

Still, I’d like to see the complete tramps death scene - if it was filmed. Also, it’s a great pity the first two victims, the young couple, didn’t get a more gruesome death. It was planned to be more violent, but the actress was so cold, she couldn’t stop shivering during filming, so her scenes weren’t completed.

I’d really, really like to see the tramp getting mauled on the bonnet of the wrecked car by the beast. Oh well … we’ll probably never see it, but at least the car can be spotted in the finished film, so we have some idea of what the scene may’ve looked like - if it was, indeed, filmed?

Have a look at the comments section from the extended tramp video you’ve linked - somebody says they saw the extra footage on a videotape release, back in ‘83.

I call “bullshot” on that one - although, I’ve heard there may be a rare videotape release that is slightly extended?

I first saw the film on Betamax in 1984, and since then, no extra footage from any videotape release. It’d be great if it were true.

  • Love that porn music. Nice to hear it ‘clean’. Thanks!

That is the sad thing with films that you can know about stuff that was filmed and imagine what it might have been like yet also have no way of knowing what it actually was like…

I think like American Werewolf in London the out’s and trims have been binned off. Think about that for a moment a successful film like American Werewolf in London had it’s deleted scenes tossed in the bin.

Now with American Werewolf it’s not anything that is ruining the film but the things that are said to have been deleted are quite obscure like.

Teaser Trailer shows cut scene of rain puddles and werewolf paw dunking in. This is obviously to do with Jack and David straying from the path.

Jack as a zombie in the Hospital talking to David eats a piece of toast and it falls out his throat (unreleased)
.
When David wakes up in the Zoo in the wolfs den he was to spit out the bankers finger he killed (unreleased).

Snippets of the werewolf were cut on the underground of the wheelbarrow werewolf showing it coming around the corner of a tunnel and at the bottom of an escalator… This is on the dvd.

Then there is the infamous tramp scene which as far as I have been able to decipher had the werewolf with a tramp on a car bonnet mauling him (Unreleased) There is a also a pushback that this scene is a complete fabrication and never filmed. This scene was shot though down by tower bridge at the Guoman tower hotel I can see the filming location.

Lastly the decapitated man in Picadilly Circus you see the reverse angle of his head bouncing off a car bonnet which was cut and is on the dvd.

These things are small don’t hurt the film but sure make you want to see them but the ones released and on the DVD are not as nearly interesting as the ones you heard about that you never saw.

So with these things always bear in mind that it could be poor and deleted for a good reason but it does not help you from wanting to see it.

Tossed in the bin the outs and trims are for American Werewolf you will never see the Tramps the Bankers finger being spat out in the zoo or the tRamp being mauled on top of a car bonnet. THEY HAD THE FILM THE REST WAS NOT REQUIRED!

There’s another deleted scene that can be found within the photo galleries from the ARROW release: a police officer, lying dead in the gutter - accidentally shot by one of his own - after the werewolf is cornered in the alley.

As great as the originally filmed attack on the tramps sounds, I doubt it was ever filmed. No stills have surfaced from such an impressive sequence. Nobody (supposedly) on the production remembers it ever being filmed. Sadly, in my opinion, I believe Landis is making it up, to build mystique around the lost scenes - knowing that they are gone for good - if some of them were ever filmed?

The puddle of blood, sounds interesting … so does another deleted moment on the moors - a shot of the wolf’s glowing eyes, as it approaches, before attacking Jack. Also reverse camera angles of the wolf’s attack on Jack, would’ve shown it from his P.O.V.

The biggest loss for me is the extended sex scene. More of Agutter is always good.

Michael Mann should also revisit THE KEEP.

This seems to sum up the issues…

https://www.denofgeek.com/movies/the-disappearance-of-michael-manns-the-keep/

Bummer.

Well the alternate ending is found but the Special effects are obviously “never got done”.

So it is possible to salvage what remains to be found is if they kept the rest of the cut footage for the Keep which is unlikely.

THE KEEP has (or had?) some interesting cut scenes. The one where the old bastard (that’s tasked with watching over the Keep) is being murdered by his sons, sounds good. And the old priest, drinking blood from a slaughtered dog - oh yeah … and the rest of the Nazi carnage by Molasar.

Sadly, probably all binned?

Salem's Lot - The Cinematic Cut (RELEASED)
Time

Just finished watching the rest of it.

SPOILERS

You’ve made some interesting editing choices. I didn’t even miss the ‘Cullen Sawyer & slut wife’ subplot at all (even though I love the scene with the shotgun - a real sweat-inducing, classic brown trouser moment, if ever there was one).
I liked the reuse of the “Marsten House” shot (from the opening titles?), now used to cover the commercial fade-to-black, just after Mark Petrie falls down the stairs and sprains his ankle. This shot is ‘unbroken’ in the “SALEM’S LOT: THE MOVIE” version. I can see why it couldn’t be used for your cut (inferior videotape quality)
What did you use for the exterior shot of Eva Miller’s boarding house (at the 1 hrs - 54 secs mark)? It looked like something from “Little House on the Prairie”?

I wish you didn’t cut short Barlow’s first appearance in the prison cell. There’s so little of him as is.

You did a great job! I enjoyed that. Thanks!

Finally got to see an outtake of Walrus Man’s severed bloody head. Great stuff!

I think there is some other youtube video that has that footage and a bunch of other stuff.

You wouldn’t have a link?

I remember seeing a fan reconstruction of the scene a few years back. Great to finally see the real deal. I wonder how many fan edits will make good use of the outtake?

Long time, no update, but work is always progressing. I’m trying out a fancy new program and trying to isolate some vocals. Here’s Leia tending to Luke, with all audio noise and Kersh being muted.

So what software are you using? sounds pretty clean to me

It’s not a criticism of the software, I just wanted to know if it could handle that particular scene, as the audio is very poor.

And here is what it sounded like before.

A bit of an improvment to say the least. Hopefully this process can be used all over the place to clean up the rest of the raw on-set audio.

Most of the cut is picture locked, with myself and RogueLeader doing some audio work on it now.

You think this software could be used for the deleted “sandstorm” sequence from RETURN OF THE JEDI?

This guy / gal isn’t going to share anything with you people.

You want the deleted scenes cleaned up and restored? You’ll have to do it yourselves.

I’ve just seen this… Im A guy I even have a pic of me on my Profile LOL
You know what I will share it with everyone once I’m happy with it, WHY WOULDNT I…
I’ve Been Working on this for a few years now… FRAME BY FRAME cleaning up these shots… I wasn’t happy with My Original Work… So I’ve been going back over it many many times…

I want to get them as best as I can… I don’t want these Deleted Scenes to look out of place when Some of The Fan Edits guys want to include them into the Edits to Stand out Like a sore thumb, that’s why Its taking time…
The only reason I’ve seen these Posts now is that I haven’t been on here for a while as there was Nothing to Report…
But I know have something to update and show people that I took on the feedback and Toned Everything Down to a Minimum,
So people will see the Update VERY VERY SOON

THANKS TO ALL THE POSITIVE COMMENTS
Stay Awesome and
STAY SAFE

PEACE

Take your time.
