The folks over at HalloweenMovies.com recently began a search for all things never-before-seen from Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. Thus far, they've located an alternate opening wherein Michael Myers washes up at the home of a man named “Dr. Death.”
We've learned today that another scene they've been looking for features Michael Myers massacring a SWAT team! Star Don Shanks talks about the scene in Part 3 of the site's interview with the actor/stuntman who played Michael in the film.
"Oh, I took out Haddonfield’s SWAT team," said Shanks, confirming that the scene was filmed. "I killed a whole bunch of people."
"[The scenes] took place at the hospital, the place where Danielle’s character left from," he continued. "If you remember, the police get on the radio (in the film) and they say, ‘He’s here,’ and the whole SWAT team (which is stationed) at the Myers house gets in their cars and they drive off, and there’s one guy left up (in the house) with Danielle in the bedroom, and then there’s one guy down below in a police car (on the street), and over the radio he hears people screaming. So that’s where the (SWAT massacre) scene was to be – just before that."
And get this! During the scene, Michael even picks up an M16 assault rifle!
Shanks recalls, "There’s one guy, and I mean they show it, when they’re taking out one of the bodies, whose head is twisted around. They put the wardrobe on him backwards, and he looks like his head’s been twisted one hundred and eighty degrees. And another, the direction was, ‘Take an M16 rifle, and you’re just walking through these guys and killing them.’ There’s Donre Samson, a big tall black guy that I kill, and another one, I put the M16 through his head, and another guy, I break his neck and stomp on him, you know. The whole idea was that you’d hear everybody screaming (over the radio) when he’s killing everybody. So we did all these really quick shots. You know: ‘Pick this guy up. Knock this guy down. Stab this guy.'"
