Synopsis:
I've made extensive alterations in order to Shape my ideal version.
I've removed the confusing "III" from the title & cut out the out-of-place romance. I've also removed Halloween from playing on TV, making it possible that this one exists in the world of the other Halloween films.... Somehow.
Many other changes have been made to strengthen continuity, remove filler & improve pacing.
Intention:
My intention was to create a tighter version that injects new energy while retaining the original mood.

The pacing of this edit is fantastic. I didn't see any noticable cuts. The video quality is great, as is audio. The change to the oncreen cards to match the title card was also very nice.

This will be go to way to watch this movie going forward.
