Halloween 6 - Producer's Cut Screened in Cinema

New Hope for a Release on Home Video?

Halloween 6  - The Curse of Michael Myers (1995) had a cut that was preferred by the producers but didn't impress a test audience. That is why director Joe Chapelle was ordered to re-write the movie and shoot new scenes - much to the disliking of almost all members of cast and crew.

This version is known as Producer's Cut and has never gotten an official release (apart from bootlegs). You can find a comparison here. However, on October 26th, 2013, the Producer's Cut got a surprising public test screening from an original 35mm print in a Los Angeles cinema. The film's writer Daniel Farrands gave some info on the status quo of that cut.

According to him, Disney owns the rights and didn't want to release the Producer's Cut because they thought that they couldn't make money off of it. Also, they didn't want to give the license to another label because they feared competition for the theatrical version they distributed. Since that DVD is out of print for some time already, Farrands took another shot at it and finally seems to be getting more of Disney's attention.

He reports that discussions are currently happening, whether and how the Producer's Cut could have its eventual release. It could turn out like it was handled with the original cut of Clive Barker's Nightbreed which will be released by Scream Factory in 2014 after decades of waiting.
