Changes made to Halloween:

1. Small trim as Michael Myers looks at Laurie
walking away from the house

2. Scene of the girls getting out of school cut,
resumes as Annie catches up while Laurie and
Linda are walking down the street

3. Scene with Laurie in her bedroom cut, picks up
as she brings the pumpkin outside when Annie picks
her up for the night

4. Small cut of Annie's death before she makes that
strange face

5. Ends with Loomis looking down at Myers, credits
cut (obviously), resumes with Loomis running out
the front door

Changes made in Halloween II (many changes and reorganization of scenes):

1. Scene with Myers and the old woman does not
occur

2. Scene when Myers kills girl on phone does not occur

3. First scene is when Loomis examines the blood and
instructs the neighbor to call the police before Loomis
runs around the house

4. The next scene is Laurie being carted off by the
ambulance and taken to the hospital, fades to her
waking up with Jimmy looking at her before they're
called to pick up the 3 bodies just found... considered
cutting some of this hospital stuff but felt it was necessary
to "meet the new characters"

5. Inserted scene of Loomis and Sheriff Brackett in the police
car searching for Myers (which is actually much earlier
in the theatrical), then Brackett gets a call before...

6. Sheriff Brackett views his daughter's dead body

7. Entire Ben Traimer/burned subplot removed

8. Laurie having nightmares about her past is
removed (gives away the secret too early)

9. The entire first half of Mr. Garrett's "search"
scene is trimmed... starts with his flashlight
shining on the broken lock

10. After the explosion, no Michael Myers walking
out while he's on fire (obvious stunt man)

About this edit:

My intention was to combine John Carpenter's
Halloween and the sequel Halloween II into one
"epic" (using that term loosely, lol) film.

Only a few small edits were made to the original
Halloween (which is a classic),
but a lot of changes had to be made to
Halloween II in order to get it to "fit" with the
original film. This is because a lot of things in
the sequel contradict not only the original film,
but what happens in the sequel itself. Namely, the
beginning of the theatrical version of Halloween II
has many mistakes. For example, when Myers goes
into the old woman's house there's a report on the news that the
police have discovered three bodies in the home
across from Tommy Doyle's house. However, they have
not been found at that time. It is not until much
later in the film that these bodies are located and
Sheriff Brackett finds out his daughter is dead.
This sequence of events has been corrected in
Halloween: The Night That Never Ends.

Also, several unnecessary scenes included in the
theatrical version of Halloween II (to extend its
length) are not included here. This includes
Michael Myers murdering a girl unrelated to the
story, as well as Dr. Loomis and the cops acting like
buffoons causing the death of Ben Traimer who gets
run over by a cop and burned up. Then, Loomis and
the cops spend half the picture trying to figure
out whether the burned up Ben Traimer is really
Myers, which doesn't work, because the audience
already knows the answer.

These scenes have been removed to make the entire
"epic" flow smoothly and more realistically,
keeping the film centered on Myers quest to locate
and kill Laurie Strode. We rarely see Myers' view
of the action, until he overhears a news broadcast
detailing Laurie's location at the Haddonfield
Memorial Clinic. From then on it's a slaughterhouse
as Myers dispatches (nearly) the entire hospital staff.

I had to remove my files because for some reason the "trial" file (mp4) exhibits audio sync problems. This is the first time I have had such problems with Sony Vegas. The longer the movie goes, the more out of sync it gets, especially during the Halloween 1 scenes. This doesn't show itself in the Sony Vegas timeline when I watch it, only when I render the complete file. The finished file even shows material that I cut... I don't get it. Maybe it's something to do with the Halloween.mpg -- when I ripped it with ImToo, it said there were buffer overflows every time.

When I figure out the problem, I will make it available.
 
Its probably because you are editing with mpg.
Convert the file to avi then replace it into vegas.

Thank you so much... I believe you have solved my problem. Halloween: The Night That Never Ends is rendering now in mp4 format and should be available on Sunday. Hopefully when I watch it, there are no problems. The MP4 is great quality too and less than 1 GB. What an

2 hours, 37 minutes of Michael Myers.
 
glad to be of service :)
 
Here it comes... uploading to Rapidshare now. This was a really fun edit to do, minus the technical problems.
 
Finally, Halloween: The Night That Never Ends (HalloweenTNTNE) has been released!

Whew... it was fun. I hope everyone enjoys it.
 
I really want to see this but would there ever be a dvd version or is it going to be staying with the mp4? If it's staying will welcome the mp4, if a dvd release is coming I would rather wait

I loved the police ramming scene, but I totally understand why you had to remove it
 
I guess I should start rendering some DVD versions of my fan edits now. I was really liking the small sizes of the MP4's too, but I see why people want DVD versions. I just hate uploading those large files and I'm limited in bandwidth by my ISP each month.

You could send it to one of our offical uploaders.
