With the upcoming release of the 35th Anniversary of John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN the release of this unseen footage of the first ever Panaglide test by Dean Cundey and Ray Stell from 1978 couldn't have been timed any better! The video was uploaded by Billy Kirkus, a Vimeo user who says, "This is the first ever Panaglide test by Dean Cundey and Ray Stella back in 1978; right before Halloween's principal photography began. Filmed outside and inside the Panavision studio. Halloween was the 4th movie to use this system."

This is some very cool stuff and apparently there's a lot more out there as Kirkus states, "one clip of rolls of 35mm film I have of footage from the original Halloween (both behind-the-scenes footage, and film from the actual production). This footage is not color-corrected and just quickly transferred by Don May, Jr. few years ago. The actual film footage is of much, much better quality.”

Kirkus also says that if you want to see more of the lost HALLOWEEN footage then contact Trancas International Films and let them know you want to see the "Unseen Halloween".

Extra Tidbit: Would you be interested in seeing the rest of the unseen footage?

35th Anniversary Blu-ray

This is only a taste of the footage that was uncovered over the past few years, and its absence from the upcoming 35th Anniversary Blu-ray is the exact reason why I will not be purchasing it, even with the new Cundey-supervised remaster and Carpenter/Curtis commentary track. We deserve to see this footage and I will not buy my favorite film for literally a tenth time until this footage is included. They should also throw the HALLOWEEN: THE INSIDE STORY two-hour documentary from the Bio Channel

If Dimension was able to include SCREAM: THE INSIDE STORY on their SCREAM box set, Anchor Bay should certainly be capable of including it here.
