Director David Gordon Green is back in Haddonfield with brand new sequel Halloween Kills, now available in theaters and streaming via Peacock. We’re of course not going to spoil anything about the movie, but it’s interesting to note that Gordon Green is teasing an “extended version” of the movie on the upcoming Blu-ray, with a whole different ending.
Speaking with Collider, Gordon Green revealed this extended alternate cut.
“This is the director’s cut through and through, but there’s an additional scene that we filmed that was scripted. And actually I think is a pretty brilliant scene. So we’re going to do an extended version on the DVD, just so people can see an extended ending that’s different and cool,” Gordon Green tells the site. “We ended up lifting it when I became more confident of where we’re going to pick up in the next movie; it didn’t feel authentic to where we’re going to go. So we lifted it. So we just said, we’re kind of coming up with, okay, then if we lift that, where do we end? And it was actually Couper Samuelson at Blumhouse, he was just, let’s just end when it’s over. Lights out. He mentioned it, he was like remember in Rogue One, when you wanted the movie to end? When it was a Darth Vader going ballistic at the door.”
Gordon Green continues, “It’s part of the movie. It’s just not part of the appropriate momentum of…I think it was cool in its own right as watching a one-off movie, but knowing where we’re going to exactly where we’re going to pick up which, you’ll know in a year, it wasn’t the right look in the eye that we needed to give the audience.”
