Heyo! I'm Gianni Belotti and I have some kind of thoughts regarding the Blumhouse trilogy for Halloween. 2018 started on a great note, Kills was okay, but Ends was bad. The big problem comes from studio greed thanks to greenlighting TWO sequels rather than just one. I had a feeling that Kills originally was going to be the finale given how it feels like some of its ideas may have been forced to be cut for an additional film, making it a trilogy rather than a duology. But what if we were only going to get one sequel? What if we were going to have a Blumhouse duology that makes up a trilogy when paired with the 1978 classic? Enter Halloween: Evil Dies Tonight, a merge cut aiming to combine Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends into one viewing experience (hence the dumb title atm). I am currently undecided on where to begin with my editing, other than making sure idiotic character decisions would be cut, including the awful scene regarding mistaking an obvious random unrelated cellmate for Michael and his suicide (awful in the sense of the Haddonfielders being fucking pea-brained dumbasses).
I have a mockup of how I'm going to open this fanedit on Vimeo, but I can't link it due to being new here.
Main progress should begin when I own proper Blu-rays of Kills and Ends, as it uses a legit digital copy of 2018 for the first half, but I had to resort to a YouTube clip for the second half. Plus I haven't fully decided to use Marco Beltrami score due to its usage in this mockup, but maybe I'll find some fitting tracks down the road. The software used for this mockup is Wondershare Filmora, and I will not use it for the real deal (likely gonna use Vegas 15 since I have it ready to go). I'm excited but scared to tackle my first fan-edit ever, I'm def unsure if I'll hit all the right notes, so feedback on what exactly should be included is more than welcome, especially since I was unsure myself on how to make it work. Cheers!
