Billy blamed Sidney's mother for destroying his family, and one year prior, he and Stu Macher murdered her and framed Cotton Weary for it. Now, he is going after Sidney and her friends, intending to frame Sidney's father Neil.

That's where the real fun is, because these days, it's all about the trial. Could you see it? The effects of cinema violence on society. I'll get Dershowitz or Cochrane to represent me, Bob Dole on the witness stand in my defense. Hell, the Christian Coalition will pay my legal fees!"''



Mrs. Loomis' accomplice, Mickey sought to become famous as a result of the killing spree, getting himself a sensationalized trial where he would claim that he, the horror buff he is, was driven to kill due to watching too many violent movies.

* AttentionWhore: He killed simply so he could stand trial afterwards and bask in the limelight.

The GreaterScopeVillain of the entire original trilogy, Roman Bridger is revealed to have gotten Billy and Stu to have killed Maureen Prescott, setting off the events of the series. He is Sidney's half-brother, and loathed both Maureen for having abandoned him as a hated reminder of her old life in HorribleHollywood, and Sidney for both living a happy life before the killings and becoming a celebrity after, feeling that both of those things were owed to him.

Far from the FinalGirl she was presented as, Jill Roberts was in fact the mastermind of the film's murders. She was a fame-hungry sociopath who planned on framing Trevor and Charlie for the murders and emerging as the FinalGirl in the eyes of the media, riding it to celebrity much as Sidney had done. She also had her 'survival' filmed so that she could upload it to social media.

-->'''Played by:''' Rory Culkin

Jill's accomplice, Charlie was secretly dating her, and planned on becoming the Randy of the killings to Jill's Sidney, the geeky guy who makes it out alive.


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: The look on his face when he realizes that Jill's plan wasn't for him to join her in fame and fortune, but for him to be the new Billy Loomis, says it all.
