As most or at least some of you know, the HALLOWEEN 6 (THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS) we have available to us today is radically different from the original film, which was titled HALLOWEEN 6: THE ORIGIN OF MICHAEL MYERS. (It was referred to as HALLOWEEN 666 early on as well.) The film originally had a different ending, different music, longer scenes,  and completely different plot points throughout.

As per Wikipedia, the film is "known for its controversial behind-the-scenes history, suffering from re-shoots in production and numerous cuts and arrangements made in the editing room; the workprint of the film, with 43 minutes of alternate footage including a different ending, was eventually discovered by fans of the series. This version, dubbed "The Producer's Cut" (as it was the original intended version of the film) developed a strong cult following, with bootleg DVD copies sold on eBay."

So anyway, as something of a Halloween treat, we bring you the original trailer for the film. The quality is far from perfect, unfortunately, but it'll do. It's almost a certainty that one day we'll receive a proper Blu-ray release of the Producer's Cut - especially since just the other day it was shown in a theater in Los Angeles for the first time ever.

Extra Tidbit: Have you seen the Producer's Cut of HALLOWEEN 6?

CURSE

Writer Daniel Farrands on the title of the film: " For the record, the film was never called The Origin of Michael Myers. That title appeared on an early video trailer released by the studio. We had no official subtitle at the time. My script was titled HALLOWEEN 666. Later I came up with THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS at a point during production where I felt the movie was truly cursed. I sort of meant it as an in-joke at the time, but I guess the producers took it seriously."

I never got the hype with this one?

ERIK37 has it right... re-cut it up all you want... chop it, tear it, edit the fuck out of it.. .it's not going to make it any better AT ALL.... and yes I have a copy of it on DVD (bootleg) it's quality is horrible.. the added scenes are very obviously added as they look nothing like the finished film at all.
