Halloween: Fans well know the Curse of Michael Myers for its multiple versions. The film had to suffer from last-minute reshoots, which will significantly change the narrative due to negative feedback received from the test audience.
The test audience, which primarily comprised fourteen-year-old boys, did not receive the ending of the film well. The end of the film had shown the passing of the curse from Cult of Thorn to Dr. Loomis. After the great scrutiny exercised by the audience members, the consensus was formed that the ending is inappropriate, which prompted the distributor of the films, Dimension Films, to order reshoots of the film’s end.
Halloween 6: Cast
The production troubles suffered by Halloween 6 are not new neither unitary. The early difficulties experienced by the movie included an unexpected Snowstorm in Salt Lake City, which forced many outdoor scenes to be shot indoors.
The recent changes made at the epilogue of the film will distort the clear vision envisioned by Farrand. They will make the movie less cohesive with earlier editions of the Halloween.
Two major cast members have also been swapped under the orders of Dimension. Wilbur was replaced by A. Michael Lerner to play the role of Micheal Myers in a “less bulky” fashion.
