John Wick: Chapter 4

The Pope’s Exorcist

Halloween (2007)


  • R-Rated
  • Unrated
Release: Mar 16, 2008 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: klepp - external link: IMDB
Comparison between the R-Rated Version and the Unrated Version.

Compared to John Carpenter's original from 1978, Rob Zombie's remake is badly disappointing. Zombie takes a lot of time to show Michael's childhood and development, but with a stripping mother, a drinking father and an arrogant sister, he uses an awful lot of stereotypes. In its second half, the movie tells the plot of the original Halloween, but without adding any new aspects.

In addition to the known R-rated/theatrical version, an unrated version was released simultaneously and is about 11 minutes longer. However, you do not have to expect any new or longer violent scenes. Most of it are plot extensions which were probably missing in the theatrical version to speed things up. Michael's escape from prison was changed, too. While he is killing four guards in the theatrical version, Noel and his cousin, who are raping a girl, indirectly help him to escape in the unrated version. So the R-rated version is not necessarily worse.

The parts marked red in the cut-report, are only in the R-rated version. Running times:

Unrated: 121:28 min. (NTSC)
R-Rated: 109:56 min. (NTSC)

A bit more dialogue after Judith denied the eggs for breakfast.

Deborah: "Since when?"
Judith: "Since now. They're chicken abortions, and they're fucking gross."
Deborah: "They are not chicken abortions."
Judith: "Like you know what an abortion is."

Ronnie starts laughing.

After that, we see Deborah a few frames earlier.

10,33 sec.

Principal: "Grab it!"

6,97 sec.


A little more dialogue in the principal's office.

Deborah: "Can't you get control over your school, principal?"
Principal: "Yes, I can get control. I can control my school. There's something you gotta know."

After that, we see Loomis walking in the hallway.

13,77 sec.


Right after the "Smith's Grove Eleven Months Later"-flash, we see a reporter standing in front of the building.

Reporter: "I'm standing outside Smith's Grove Sanitarium."

After that, it goes on (like in the R-Rated) directly with the news-report.

3,13 sec.


After the conversation between Michael and Loomis we see a black-and-white-video-shot of Michael, thereto Loomis' voice.

Loomis: "Case: Michael Myers. To the untrained eye, there's nothing visually abnormal with this angelic young boy, but one must remember not to be fooled by his calm, unassuming facade."

Another appraisal of Loomis is seen. As before, in black and white with Loomis' voice.

Loomis: "Michael has begun to obsess on the construction of these primitive masks. It is the rare occasion that he will allow himself to be seen without one of these. Only during the weekly visits from his mother does he show brief glimpses of the boy he once may have been."

16,50 sec.


After Deborah's visit, we see another scene of Loomis and Michael quietly sitting face to face at a session. Loomis switches on the tape-recorder.

After that, we see his third appraisal.

Loomis: "Michael's so-called normal moments are becoming fewer and fewer, and I'm particularly worried about this. I believe that these masks have begun to create a mental sanctuary in which Michael can hide within himself and from himself."

34,47 sec.


After Michael was hugged by Loomis, we see the fourth appraisal.

Loomis: "Michael's downward slide into this hellish abyss continues. I fear he's on the verge of completely shutting down."

After that, we see Loomis and Michael sitting at a table outdoors.

Loomis: "I managed to persuade the suits to let you come outside and sit out in the garden. All right, gardens. Hardly a charming place, but at least there's a bit of greenery. But please, I mean, if you don't communicate with me, how can I help you? I'm here to help you. I feel an utter failure at the moment, that I just can't get through to you. And you know, they're going to see in my reports that you're not responding, and-- you know, they may take me off the case. I don't know. I hope not."
Michael: "I need to get out of here."
Loomis: "Yes, that's not going to happen for a while, Michael."

51,23 sec.

In the R-Rated, the next scene starts a little earlier.

A fifth appraisal from Loomis can be seen.

The dialogue between the two guards goes on a little bit.

Noel: "...and I suppose that's because you're a hard worker."

Noel: "All your women keep your little bungalows clean, sweep off the dirt floors-- keep the papooses in order and all--"

10,37 sec.


A little more dialogue in Michael's cell.

Noel and his cousin Kendall are walking along the hallway.

Kendall: "Kendall, I really don't appreciate being called out of my favorite watering hole to come down on the fuckin' graveyard shift. If you do me dirt on this one, I'll fuckin' hold it against you."
Noel: "Hey, you know what? I'll fuck her. You don't want to fuck her? I'll fuck her. Right here."

Noel opens the door to one of the cells and drags out a girl.

Kendall looks in the direction of Michael's cell.

Kendall: "Mikey, Mikey, Mikey."

Noel: "Here we go. I want you to meet Cousin Noel."

Kendall turns to her.

Kendall: "Hi, there, sweetie. Hi."
Noel: "Huh?"
Kendall: "Oh, we're just here to look in on you. We know it's your first night and all. We just want to see how you are. Oh! Aren't you a pretty little thing?"
Noel: "Not bad, huh?"
Kendall: "We're just makin' sure everything's okay."

The girl is winching a bit.

Kendall: "Oh, now, we're okay. Hey. Ooh, look at those little titties."
Noel: "You're right! Oh, look at there."
Kendall: "What else is under there?"

The girl starts screaming. But Noel keeps holding her.

Kendall: "No, no, no, no, no. Oh, yeah! Whoo! We got ourselves a fighter! A fresh one! You done good, cousin. Hah-hah! I got an idea."
Noel: "Okay."
Kendall: "I got me a fuckin' bona fide, sure as shit idea!"

We see Michael, who is working on a mask, in his cell.

Kendall: "Keep her fuckin' quiet."
Noel: "God, shut up."

The door opens.

Kendall: "Oh, Mikey, Mikey, Mikey, Mikey, Mikey."
Noel: "Hello, Mike!"
Kendall: "Hey, Mikey. We brought you a little company."
Noel: "Yeah, we got you some new, fresh meat, baby."
Kendall: "Fuckin' bitch. You want some of that? Come on, baby! Show us you're a man, huh?"

Kendall grabs the girl between her legs and smells her fingers.

Kendall: "You want some fuckin' pussy? Yeah. You want some fuckin' pussy, huh? Yeah. Mm, that's good. How 'bout some of that, killer?"

Micheal does not react.

Noel: "He ain't gonna do it. Let me lick--Let me just--You wanna fuckin' fight, huh? Come on, bitch."

Noel rapes the girl on Michael's bed.

Kendall: "Fuck the shit outta her. Come on! Get on her!"
Noel: "Yeah, baby!"

When Noel is done, the girl is raped by Kendall.

Noel (to Michael): "You fucking tard-ass faggot, come on!"
Kendall: "Yeah!"

Both of them take a mask from the wall and puts it on.

Kendall: "You a faggot, boy?"

Michael stands up and walks to Noel.

Noel: "You a faggot, huh?"

Michael throws Noel against the wall.

Kendall: "What the fuck? Hey, you son of a bitch!"

Kendall beats Michael with a pipe.

Kendall: "Son of a bitch! Let him go. Kendall!"

Michael lets off Noel. Kendall flies out of the room, but stumbles over his pants, which are still dragged down.

Kendall: "What the fuck, Mikey? It's Kendall. It's Kendall, Mikey."

Michael grabs him and throws him against the wall several times. Kendall goes down to the ground with a wound at his head.

Guard2: "Hey man, I do what I do. You tell me to move the meat, I move the meat."
Larry: "We'll they're getting on my last nerve. What the hell are we waiting around for?"
Female guard: "Have a doughnut, Larry. Relax."
Larry: "A doughnut? Do you know many sit-ups it takes to work off a goddamn doughnut?"
Female guard: "Yes, I do, baby. But do you?"
Larry: "Yes, I do. It's a lot. And that shit ain't funny."

The phone rings.

Female guard: "What you got? Okay. Yes, sir. Yes...sir. Understood."

Loomis: "What about you?"
Head of prison: "No, no, no, no. You're not pinning this on me. He was your patient, Doctor."
Loomis: "Was my patient. Look, all you guys had to do was to play zoo-keeper. Just keep the monkeyhouse locked until the monkey died of old age. How difficult is that?"
Head of prison: "Christ, you can barely tell he's breathing half the time. He's been like a comatose kitty for 15 years."
Morgan: "If our security wasn't sufficient, Sammy, you should have warned us."
