Following the original script for the Halloween (2018) film, shuffling around a lot in the first 2 thirds and adding back deleted scenes to fill some gaps in the story, I've tried to restore the film back to how it was originally structured. There's a lot of changes that I don't exactly know how to detail, so I'll type out both the theatrical and script scene orders in the hopes they make sense for comparison sake. 


Theatrical Structure (1:45:47)
Opening at Smith's Grove and title sequence
Aaron and Dana go to Laurie's compound and interview
Alyson, Ray and Karen are introduced, and Alyson walks to school discussing Laurie 
Cameron and Oscar are introduced at school, Alyson sees Laurie and they talk
Laurie at the gun range
Michael's prison transfer montage
The family at dinner with Cameron, Laurie interrupts
Hunter and son discover Michael and the bus, Hawkins investigates 
Aaron and Dana at Judith's grave
Hawkins in hospital with the doctor
Aaron and Dana at the petrol station
Laurie sees the news of the bus crash
Laurie breaks into Karen's home
Hawkins' sees the petrol station killings, Laurie watches from afar
Long take of Michael's killings on Halloween night
Halloween dance, Vicky babysitting
Cameron cheats and throws Alyson's phone in a bowl of cheese
Dave shows up at Vicky's babysitting gig and both are killed
Hawkins investigates the house, Laurie shows up, talks to the doctor
Alyson and Oscar talk as they walk
Hawkins and Doctor ride-along
Hawkins and Laurie show up at Karen's house and attempt to contact Alyson
Alyson and Oscar jump over a fence, Alyson leaves him, he's killed
etc. 


Script Restructure (1:53:55)
Deleted scenes are in italics 
Opening at Smith's Grove and title sequence
Alyson, Ray and Karen are introduced, and Alyson walks to school discussing Laurie 
Laurie at the gun range (extended)
Aaron and Dana go to Laurie's compound 
Laurie contemplates suicide, interrupted by Aaron and Dana 
Aaron, Dana interview Laurie
Cameron and Oscar are introduced at school, Alyson sees Laurie and they talk
Michael's prison transfer montage
The family at dinner with Cameron, Laurie interrupts
Hunter and son discover Michael and the bus, Hawkins investigates 
Dana has a shower at their motel, Aaron interrupts wearing the Myer's Mask
Alyson goes for a jog, sees a partially eaten dog hanging from a tree with Michael in the distance 

Laurie sees the news of the bus crash
Aaron and Dana at Judith's grave
Aaron and Dana at the petrol station
Hawkins in hospital with the doctor
Alyson and her friends at school, Vicky says she can't go to the dance
Hawkins' sees the petrol station killings, Laurie watches from afar
Laurie breaks into Karen's home
Long take of Michael's killings on Halloween night
Halloween dance, Vicky babysitting
Dave shows up at Vicky's babysitting gig and both are killed
Cameron cheats and throws Alyson's phone in a bowl of cheese
Hawkins investigates the house, Laurie shows up, talks to the doctor
Cameron tries to fix things with Alyson, gets himself arrested by cops shutting down the dance
Hawkins and Laurie show up at Karen's house and attempt to contact Alyson
Hawkins and Doctor ride-along
Alyson and Oscar jump over a fence, Alyson leaves him, he's killed
etc. 

Nothing has been cut besides one line from Oscar to allow for a bit of a better scene transition and the last half of the cop-sandwich talk because the script has one line for that scene instead of an entire 2 minute back and forth. 

A lot of stuff has been rearranged hopefully for a fresh experience (maybe better I can't tell) and about 9 minutes of new stuff added, some of which shouldn't of been cut in my opinion. 

Feel free to PM me for a workprint

According to the official IFDB listing, it states that five of the seven deleted scenes were integrated into the film. What do the other two consist of?

So I finished watching your restructure of the film, while it flows better by adapting to the script, i found small issues in the Editing which i took the liberty to fix with my free time, my edit consists on fixing small transitions errors in some scenes, mostly when you put a deleted scene back, you can see a second of another scene that was originally there, there was also an audio issue, for the whole movie, if it's wathed on headphones, you can mostly hear from one ear, and the whole scene where Allyson's boyfriend drowned her phone you could only hear the background music, i also took the liberty to fix those things, other than this, i think you've done a great job! i just made sure to fix some small issues to train on my video editing, feel free to pm me for the fixed version of your edit :)
