I kid you not, if they brightened up the lighting in the  movie to where I could actually see stuff on the screen I would at least enjoy the parts that had Wolf and action in them.

I'd probably buy a re-release with the "right" colour grading on it.

I think thew only way I'd ever consider buying a re-release is if they added some of the (allegedly quite plentiful) deleted scenes back in, or at least put them on the disc as a binus.

My curiosity in seeing that stuff would outweigh my hatred of the movie. Just.

They did an extended version with deleted scenes, didn't they?

They did. But by all accounts there was quite a lot more they filmed that's never been released. For instance, there are characters listed in the film's credits that aren't actually in the movie, so evidently some stuff must have been cut quite late.

I don't think the scenes with the brother and sister ever surfaced.

Because those scenes are apparently awful.  Embarassingly bad.  Say what you will about the Strause Bros, but they made the best movie they could under the circumstances.

Don't know whose fault it is with the colour grading, though.

I meant those are the only ones I could really think of. I suppose we never saw the footage of the skinned Predator's restored, did we? I don't think I've actually seen the Unrated cut so I can't really remember.

That I know of, there's the stuff with the kids, the skinned Predators, the alternate ending and probably at least a couple of other scenes mentioned in the scripts, characters from which are still listed in the film's credits, implying they were filmed and considered for inclusion at some point. In their commentary, the Strauses also talk about filming some Predator POV shots that never made the movie. And I'd assume the original final act where Dallas' kid brother dies exists in some form, as that was supposedly changed after a test screening.

Nothing groundbreaking, but out of curiosity I'd be interested to see whatever they have. As it is, the film's easily the shortest in the franchise, and I remember reading somewhere that it was cut quite considerably for time shortly before release. (Because Fox realised they had a stinker on their hands and just wanted to maximise how many times it could be shown in a day?)

AvP is the shortest at 85 minutes of actual screen time (plus ten minutes of credits).

One of the latter drafts of the script had the PredAlien skin Ray the cop; it'd be interesting to see if they filmed that. There was also a scene of Molly playing by a sewer opening during the day and almost being grabbed by an Alien (scripted and filmed), and scenes at the high school during the day (scripted, not sure if filmed).
