Halloween Deleted Scene Solves the Mystery of the Missing Boyfriend
Posted 2019/01/08 0
A new deleted scene from David Gordon Green’s Halloween tells the story of what happened to Allyson’s boyfriend, Cameron Elam. The character is the son of original Halloween character Lonnie Elam and is seen for the last time after the couple gets in a fight. He isn’t a lead character, but his disappearance was seen as rather odd in the final cut of the movie, though not too many people were asking where he went. But, now we finally know. Did the Shape get him?
As it turns out, Cameron Elam’s story ends in Halloween after he mouths off to some police officers. He and Allyson are fighting, but then they hit a “breakthrough,” only to be interrupted by the cops who tell everyone to go home. Cameron doesn’t like their attitude and decides to let the cops know how he feels, which results in a safe trip to the back of a police car in handcuffs. It might have been a little cooler to let Michael Myers deal with him, but it was deleted for a reason.
In addition to the Cameron Elam deleted scene, which is titled Cameron and the Cops Don’t Mix, the Halloween Blu-ray features six more deleted or extended scenes, including the Extended Shooting Range, shower Mask Visit, Jog to a Hanging Dog, Allyson and Friends at School, Deluxe Banh Mi Cops, and Sartain and Hawkins Ride Along. There’s also five featurettes included in the Blu-ray release that cover Back in Haddonfield: Making Halloween, The Original Scream Queen, The Sound of Fear, Journey of the Mask, and The Legacy of Halloween. All in all, the set looks perfect for fans of what David Gordon Green brought to the big screen.

Halloween was able to earn $253.6 million, becoming the highest grossing movie in the franchise’s long history and snagging the fourth spot for highest grossing R-rated horror movie of all time. Blumhouse is already planning a sequel, which John Carpenter has expressed interest in returning for. The iconic director/composer/writer served as executive producer and provided the updated score for the latest movie, which had horror fans very excited. That being said, many were more impressed with the score than they were with the movie as a whole.
Halloween is currently available digitally and the Blu-ray edition will be available on January 15th. A 4K Ultra HD version will also be available on the 15th. As for the sequel, we’ll just have to wait and see what direction Blumhouse chooses to take it in. Some fans would love to see David Gordon Green return, while others would be perfectly happy if the studio decided against making another movie. Regardless, Halloween brought in some box office dough, so a sequel seems inevitable at this point in time.
