The Extended Cut of ‘Halloween Kills’ will be available on digital in December

For better or worse there is already plans for an extended version of Halloween Kills to be released next month on digital platforms.

Amazon’s website indicates the Halloween Kills Extended Cut will be available digitally on December 13, 2021. David Gordon Green teased recently that an extended version of the film with an alternate ending might be coming, so there are no official details at this time.

“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 told 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.”

The alternate ending for Halloween Kills was filmed, and it is presumably the one featuring Laurie’s phone call. According to the filmmaker, the scene was trimmed because he wasn’t sure where Halloween Ends would begin. According to Green, the alternate scene might have thrown off the direction of the film’s sequel. In Halloween Ends, the writers jump to the present day, so it makes sense why they would want to trim the scene. The result of Laurie’s phone call would be of interest to viewers, but if Halloween Ends jumps to 2022, that wouldn’t be possible. The theatrical ending, although less thrilling than the alternate sequence, is a justified decision.

Taking place immediately after Halloween Kills ends, we are back in Haddonfield dealing with a decade of events following the events of last year’s Halloween, which Laurie Strode, her daughter Karen, and granddaughter Allyson narrowly escaped Michael Myers’s grasp. During Laurie Strode’s visit to the hospital, the fire department rushes to her home to put out the fire. This leads them to unintentionally set Myers free to continue his rampage. In the chaos that ensues, Myers is unmerciful to anyone he encounters. Additionally, Halloween Kills reappears several characters from the original 1978 film – Anthony Michael Hall plays a grown-up Tommy Doyle, and Kyle Richards will reprise her role as Lindsey Wallace. As Marion Chambers, Dr. Loomis’ former assistant, Nancy Stephens returns to the franchise.
