So…according to his Twitter account (and a Shock Till You Drop interview), Rob Zombie’s upcoming Halloween 2 had an original cut that was a bladder busting FOUR HOURS LONG. Recent cuts have gotten the film down to just under two hours. Which begs the question…how do you cut TWO HOURS out a movie and still have it make sense? What the hell is on the cutting room floor that you can still have a two hour long movie that cohesively tells a story? Was that extra two hours that unneccessary? Did it involve Frodo and his friends bouncing up and down on the bed cheering? Or a lot of “epic walking?”
Guess we’ll find out on the eventual DVD/Blu-Ray.
Four hours. Damn.
