To find out more specifics about the Producer’s cut, click
or see below:
ending in the Producer's Cut was the first to be filmed. After Donald
Pleasance's death in 1995, the ending was rewritten and re-shot due to the
fact that Pleasance would've been needed for the next installment. The
released ending was written by Champelle.
Also, in the last 15 minutes of the theatrical release when everyone's at
Smith's Grove, the Shape is actually played by A. Michael Lerner, because
Wilbur was not available for the ending's re-shoot. So, it's actually A.
Michael Lerner's father that he is chasing down the hall and slamming his
face against the metal door.
- The original script called for
a chase scene between Barry Simms and Michael where Simms thought that
Michael was another costumed kid. Simms climbs into Michael's van to hide.
Michael smashes the window and kills him. Also, Tim and Beth were supposed
to see Michael carrying Barry Simms to the tree while they were leaving
much like when Tommy saw him carrying Annie in the first one. And when the
little girl is feeling red rain, it was originally a group of kids.
- The writer of the script,
Daniel Farrands wanted the film to be shot in Pasadena where the original
was filmed but it was instead filmed in Salt Lake City like the previous
- The script went through 11
- Most of the music on the
soundtrack is the music from the Producer's Cut, but it doesn't feature
the much better version of the Halloween theme in the Producer's Cut.
- The deleted scene of Michael
watching Kara walk to class as she looks at Danny's drawing is included in
the TV version of the film.
I’d like to thank Matt Russell
for slapping all this info my way.
