Happy Endings

Alternate film endings and deleted scenes included as DVD 'bonus' material always pose a bit of a problem for me. I'm always intrigued to see what could have been but usually disappointed and grateful that those scenes didn't make the final cut.

However, after viewing Disney hokum The Watcher in the Woods (1980) this week I discovered there was an even dafter alternate ending. The embed function has been disabled but please view here and let me know which you feel is dafter / makes less sense / has cheesier effects / has more Ian Bannen goggling / has better Bette Davis hair. (And yes, that is the kid from 'Halloween')

I suppose I should say 'spoiler alert', but frankly the rest of the film doesn't really add much.
