Halloween (I) (2018)
According to the leaked script and test audience reports, original ending had very different and much shorter version of the final confrontation between Michael and Laurie. After she wounds him by shooting some of his fingers off and goes around the house trying to find him, they eventually end up outside the house where Laurie tries to shoot him but realizes she's out of bullets so she takes her own knife and gets into knife fight with Michael during which she cuts him in the arm the same way he cut her forty years ago, but he also manages to stab her in the chest, and as he's about to stab her again, Karen shoots him in the back with crossbow arrow, heavily wounding him. Then while she and Allyson are carrying wounded Laurie away while she's begging them to go back and kill him, wounded Michael goes into the woods and then ends up at the clearing near Laurie's house where her mannequins are and sits down against a tree, heavily breathing and as it's implied by the script, possibly even finally slowly dying.
Trailers for the film, specially the earlier ones, and behind the scenes footage show some of the deleted and alternate scenes from the film, like Dana's shower scene where Aaron scares her by wearing Michael's mask, but they also show several parts of original ending, like Michael and Laurie's knife fight.
Some of the other deleted scenes include Allyson finding a dead butchered dog hanging upside down on a tree, alternate death scenes for Aaron and Dana, Laurie and Karen talking in Haddonfield Community Center, Allyson comforting Laurie after restaurant scene, extended scene of Laurie on her gun range, Allyson sitting on the school bench and talking with Cameron and Oscar, police arriving to the school dance and arresting Cameron. Some other scenes were also added during re-shoots, like Laurie giving Allyson the money she got from Aaron and Dana, and flashback scene where Karen tells Allyson about her childhood and growing up with Laurie training her to be ready for Michael's return.
