When Halloween was sold for broadcast to NBC in 1980, the network demanded numerous edits to the original film. Although producer Debra Hill personally debated these cuts, it became necessary to create additional scenes to fill the movie's two-hour television slot. Using the crew of Halloween II, as well as Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence, director John Carpenter commenced a three-day shoot of all-new scenes and alternate footage that was then added to the original version.
The TV Terror Cut is an attempt to add back these scenes from the TV cut (which were included on the 35th Anniversary Blu-Ray) into the feature film and make them stand up against the HD footage, of which these scenes are just in SD.
