We all have those movies that we hear about being taken to task in the editing room. Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood springs to mind as one that was butchered in editing to appease the MPAA.
Down the line, we hope that there is some kind of release that shows us the footage we missed and in the aforementioned Jason adventure, it’s been deleted and left to the annals of history.
That being said, when Kiefer Sutherland was talking to Yahoo! about his favorite scene in The Lost Boys, they referred to it as a deleted scene which for all intents and purposes is really just a workaround by the filmmakers who must have the footage somewhere that we will never see.
When speaking to Yahoo! Sutherland had this to say;
“It’s sort of in the movie, they cut around it, but there was a guy on a beach and he was bald and they had made a prosthetic cast of his head. And the part of the scene that I loved the most was literally, it was like a cake: I ate the whole back of his head off and blood just went everywhere. I had been directed to just smile like a child having cake, and the two images were so frightening and scary.”
Here is what it was supposed to look like;
