(2009)

Alternate Versions

The Director's Cut runs 14 minutes longer (119 minutes). Among the changes:
  • The opening scene with Laurie walking and Loomis being placed into the ambulance is longer.


  • The hospital dream scene has an extra sequence of Laurie attempting to cross over a pile of bodies.


  • An on screen title that said "One Year Later" in the Theatrical Cut now says "Two Years Later."


  • During the breakfast scene, Laurie and Annie now argue about going to the psychiatrist.


  • More dialogue with Laurie and the psychiatrist. Laurie looks at a framed inkblot on a wall and says that it looks like a white horse.


  • Loomis' press conference is expanded. Loomis discusses Michael's Oedipal complex, as well as the idea that Michael perhaps saw Loomis as a father figure.


  • Added sequence where Laurie runs a bath and begins to freak out.


  • Laurie stopping to play with a pig on her way to work is removed. She instead goes to the psychiatrist and tells her about playing with the pig (we see a few seconds of it, now in flashback), and how it triggered a nervous breakdown of sorts. When the shrink denies her more pills, Laurie freaks out and swears.


  • The scene where Annie finds Laurie drinking a beer in her room has been expanded: They have another fight.


  • A non-masked Michael (along with Young Michael and his mother) angrily looks at a billboard that advertises Loomis' book.


  • When Laurie and Maya come home from the party, there is a short added sequence of them making tea in the kitchen prior to going upstairs. There's also an added shot of Michael apparently walking out of the house.


  • Brackett's reaction to finding Annie's body is longer, containing video flashbacks of real-life actress Danielle Harris as a child.


  • The ending is significantly different: After Loomis enters the cabin, Michael throws him through a wall, and the two of them wind up outside. Michael then removes his mask, yells "DIE!", and stabs Loomis. The cops then open fire and kill Michael. Laurie then comes out, takes Michael's knife, and approaches Loomis with it, implying that she may stab him. The cops then open fire on her and seemingly kill her. We then fade to the same hospital footage seen at the end of the theatrical cut as a cover of "Love Hurts" plays on the soundtrack.
