Brief Synopsis:
Back in October of 2022, Halloween Ends -- the third chapter of David Gordon Green's reboot trilogy of the Halloween franchise -- was released in theatres, billed as the "final explosive chapter in the Michael Myers/Laurie Strode story". The film proved to be quite divisive within the Halloween fandom due to choices made within the film regarding how Michael was handled and the introduction of new character, Corey Cunningham, who serves quite a large role within the film for the entirety of the film's runtime. Everyone has strong opinions regarding the film: you either love it or hate it.

Being in what appears to be a small minority, I enjoyed the movie for what it is, and its that enjoyment that made me want to create an extended edition that reintegrated all of the deleted and extended scenes to create the longest cut of the film possible. I am proud to present Halloween Ends: Extended Cut.
Intention:
To extend Halloween Ends to its longest length possible.

I really applaud the work you've done here but there are some considerable syncing issues in this. For example, the junkyard scene does not match up with with the lip movements, as mentioned by the review below. While some deleted scenes sync seamlessly, the color grading seems a bit inconsistent, especially during Corey's mom's death. An example of the audio sync is the entire Junkyard scene sequence, where the lip movements are not in sync with the OST or the dialogue, 01h:20:00 mins onward has considerable syncing issues. I think you did a good job with the video quality, but you should address this in a V2. I have faith you can repair these issues.

I'm one of the few who enjoyed Halloween Ends. This extended cut might not save it for those that didn't enjoy it, but for those like myself who did, it's a great way to experience even more of Corey Cunningham's story. The deleted scenes are all integrated seamlessly back in. The only flaw of this entire edit is one scene where the audio track doesn't sync with the lips moving (around 43.5 mins in).

Otherwise, it's the most complete and now my go to version of Halloween Ends

Thank you so much for the review! I’ll have to go back and check that spot you mentioned, and fix the audio there. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a review.
