How did "The Butterfly Effect" end?

I am way fucking confused here ... I have 2 different copies of the movie "the butterfly effect" and they both end differently. I never saw it in theaters, so I am just curious which one was shown on the big screen.

1) it ends with evan watching a home movie of himself at a party, at the party he tells the little girl that he hates her and will kill her if he ever sees her again so that she will go live with her mother. Everybody lives and evan passes the chick on the street when they are old.

2) this one also ends with evan watching a home movie, but it is his own birth. he strangles himself with his own cord while he is still in the womb. Plus there is a crazy scene earlier in teh begining where some fortune teller tells him that he has no life line and he should'nt be here. evan never existed outside the womb, but everyone else has a good life.

so which one is the version everyone else saw?

I saw the second one. I never saw the movie in theaters. It was an okay movie but that new Star Wars blew that movie away. :thumbsup:

maybe they made it that way because the movie itself had several different endings...it was just a director's trick to mess with your mind. regardless, i saw the first ending. :(

Now I want to see the 2nd ending. But in theaters, it's the 1st one. So your mean his FETUS literally takes it's cord, and suffocates himself?!

I saw the first one first and then watched the other ending.
I perfer the first one, because it has more of a wonder to it, the second one is just plain strange.

Yep, he goes back to the point right before he is born, he is a baby still in the womb and he wraps his cord around his neck and chokes himself. There were also a few extra scenes added in that play into the whole thing. I was fucking sad bro ... :(

What is this atrocity!
Death is a great way to end a movie.

I saw the first ending. It sounds better than the second. The butterly effect is my favourite movie ever (no joke). I love Aston (HAWT!) and, i like the movie because it teaches you a life-lesson. The only thing I dont like, is that you can't miss even 1 seccond, or you are totally lost. (At least I was!)
