I'm not quite sure on the title, but I'm taking the movie Alligator and adding in the TV scenes which were remastered for the recent blu ray release. It adds about 8 minutes to the movie and while it isn't essential, it does add a little more to the receding hair storyline that had little to no importance to the overall story and adds to the charm of this silly early 80's horror flick.
The TV version cuts out a lot of gore and a few shots here and there (brief nudity, alligator poop, etc.) as well as changing some dialogue for TV standards. One of the best scenes in the TV cut that was not in the theatrical release is a fake out that involves a mom going inside to answer her ringing phone and leaving her toddler out in a pack and play just before the alligator busts through the yard.
This site goes into a lot more detail and is one of my references for completing this edit: https://www.movie-censorship.com/report.php?ID=122624
The edit itself should be quick and easy as I'm pretty much just adding in scenes and not needing to remove much at all.
I'm not reinventing the wheel or anything with this lol. This is just for any niche fans of this silly, but charming horror movie and the only way to watch a more complete cut of it. If this has enough interest, I have a grindhouse idea for another time.
