Alternate Cuts
Main articles: Halloween II: The Producer's Cut, Halloween 6: The Producer's Cut
Each of the films in the Halloween series has one or more alternate cuts for either artistic or censorship-related changes.
   Halloween has a television cut, which added more scenes because NBC claimed the original was too short. They also cut the scene where the actress portraying Nancy Loomis' butt is stuck in the air after being locked in the laundry room and trying to escape through the window. This scene was deleted because NBC thought it was pornographic. The extra scenes were filmed at the time Halloween II was being filmed.
   Halloween II has a television cut, which was the original "Rick Rosenthal Cut" of the film before John Carpenter re-edited parts of it.
   Halloween III: Season of the Witch has an uncut version, which adds about a minute of gore and a few additional minutes of characterization to the film. There are different edits, some of which have just the gore (UK re-release), others have just the characterization (Asian), and one has both (German).
   Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers currently has the most edits with five (producer's cut, rough cut, director's cut, television cut, theatrical cut).
   Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later has a workprint which features an alternate opening, an alternate score, and new scenes.
   Halloween: Resurrection has a workprint and an earlier rough cut. The workprint is the same as the theatrical release with alternate music choices and a different opening and title. The rough cut follows the original script more closely and eliminates many scenes containing the character "Freddie."
   Rob Zombie's Halloween has a workprint that contains many different scenes, an alternate ending, and small lines that were edited out of the finished product.
