Director’s Cuts seem to be everywhere, but there are some movies that could still benefit from some editing and extra scenes.
Clive Barker is attempting (opens in new tab) to get a new version of Nightbreed whacked on to DVD, so we thought we’d take a look at some other movies we thought might be candidates…
The Film: The Blair Witch Project (1999)
The director(s): Eduardo Sánchez/Daniel Myrick
Director’s comment: “The first time we cut the movie, we knew it was too long - it was about two and a half hours.
“There's a lot of good stuff that didn't make the film. I'm really happy with the film and I think we cut it as well as we could.
“There's plenty of fan interest, though not so much from Lionsgate, but I really would love to put out a two-and-a-half hour version of the movie on DVD; like a Criterion edition with a bunch of extra footage.”
What could be found on a new disc? Given the loose, first person style of filming for the indie horror, there’s naturally a lot of footage left over.
You could probably make an entirely separate film from what the lads had left over once they’d edited the thing down.
