added THX style FAN logo intro
replaced some intro logos and credits
completely removed intro narration
trimmed scene where they first try to leave by car to reduce obvious continuity error where James is wearing the tie that he used to wrap around Kristen’s injured hand
recut execution scene so that we do not see what is happening. Shots of the outside of the house and neighboring trees and roads have replaced the visuals with screams and sound effects as audio
deleted everything after initial execution. Male murderer does not follow Kristen around house. Boys meeting murderers and duplicate shots of boys finding victoms have been removed.

A great example of how simple cuts can make a big difference in the mood of a film.

Just saw this with 2 friends the other night. None of us have seen the original yet, but I already know that I prefer your edit.
Personally, scary movies are very effective on me. It apparently is not that hard to scare me. But I don’t enjoy a lot of gore, so I avoid a lot of the movies out there. Your edit gave me a pretty good piece of psychological suspense, and felt like a real movie (i.e. no noticeable edits).
