You'll notice no major earth shattering changes, but they're there. For example, no psychic Kim. No tree in the middle of the foundation. No gore scenes. Jeff says it's where they found Heather's footage, not supposedly because the movie was real. No owl. It all flows better without the added garbage. Nothing creepy happens to them, they're just camping until the next day.
I know, that actual line comes later. I meant references to the first film as fiction. The interviews and tv clips at the beginning. I didn't catch the "supposed to be" removal at first. That could stay or go. Fine either way.
"That was just a movie" comes after they wake up, and it's removed from my version.
You meant "supposed to be" is gone.
I never had a problem with "supposed to be" in my cut because they don't know for 100% fact whether or not Heather's footage was really found at that exact spot or not.
It's the story. Could be true. Could be false. From their point of views.
I can see the owl being removed completely without losing any narrative structure, but no large tree references whatsoever?
I guess Erica will never be found on video swinging around the tiny tree..
They never mention it was just a movie. There is no reference at all to it not being real. They had missing posters, which indicates at some point they were going that way otherwise there'd be no point in having them. So I changed every possible reference they make to the movie not being real.
BTW, Tristen asking Kim how she knew she was knocked up and her just going "hmf" was just a reference to her being a new form of Human evolution, like having psychic powers. Those powers are completely erased in this version.
