I watched The Doctor's Cut as a double feature with LastSurvivor's "The Night of the Boogeyman", and really appreciated the way the two versions of the combined Halloween and Halloween II movies worked. While LastSurvivor's edit focuses mostly on Laurie and feels like a complete story, Jnisch's focus on Loomis makes just as much sense, and while it doesn't feel quite as complete as Laurie's story, all of the extra material added with Loomis at the mental institution helps to make this edit feel more like the first chapter in Loomis' story as he battles against the Shape, and it makes the later Thorn Trilogy sequels feel more justified in largely ignoring Laurie to tell the story of Loomis instead.
