Halloween 4 & 5's Legendary Cut Scenes
Both Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 have each an excised sequence that has become kind of a thing of legend and maybe that "holy grail" type deleted scene for fans akin to Ripley finding Burke cocooned. Nobody aside from those who made the films have seen them, and for all intents and purposes they likely could be destroyed at this point. So people shouldn't steer anger toward Blu-ray/DVD distributors because they can't produce something that they don't have/hasn't been recovered/doesn't exist anymore. But anyway, I thought it'd be cool to touch upon each one briefly here.
In the final product, we see Sheriff Meeker, Dr Loomis, Rachel and Jamie return to the police station to find it bloodied and destroyed. Seeing just the aftermath of a heinous Michael Myers strike. If you thought Bucky had it bad, these guys were soaked in a blood bath. On Halloween night of 1988, Michael apparently had a plan to getting to his niece. Part 1 - cut the power. Part 2 - take out the law officials. Part 3 - Kill Jamie. Part 4 - Profit.
Michael originally didn't wash up by that hobo with a parrot. He washed up by a young devil worshiping guy named Dr. Death. He was apparently in the middle of pig sacrifice when Michael showed up. This guy made the plot make 1% more sense as he was the one who gave Michael the mark of the Thorn on his wrist and resurrected him with a spell a year later. Michael then did what anyone should do to someone calling themselves Dr. Death, he broke him of his altar/sacrificial table and went on his merry way.
