** [[spoiler:White Face is actually revealed at the end of the game to have been the writer of all of those text files to the player all along.]] Whilst this doesn't confirm for sure what he/she/it is, it gives us some insight when considering some of what the messages say.
** [[spoiler:Another thing to consider is the Door ending. White Face has a complete change of personality at this point, and the red messages scribbled on the wall state things like "IT'S YOUR FAULT", "YOU BROKE MY HEART", "I BEGGED YOU AND YOU IGNORED MY REQUEST" and perhaps the saddest ones "I DON'T WANT YOU TO KILL ME", and "I DON'T WANT TO DIE".]] As hostile as White Face is in this part, he's EXTREMELY and understandably terrified because right from the beginning he was never that evil in his intentions. Sure, he frightens the player and crashes their game, but right from the beginning he stated that he didn't want to die. So he likely is just as frightened as the player deep down, and is just trying to hide it by scaring the player more.

** The true ending to the game. Poor White Face.
** HER, as well. Text in the game suggests that like/unlike White Face, she's being forced to scare the player, and doesn't really want to do so. [[spoiler: As such, she begs the player to kill her instead.]]
-->'"HER"': "I really don't like what became of me."

** The Steam version has [[spoiler: the Market.]] No sign of White FaceFace at all. The only creepy part occurs at the end, [[spoiler: when you have to turn on the power while listening to heavy breathing and bottles breaking nearby.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In the Steam edition, there's a segment involving collecting three phonographs while avoiding HER. Players have claimed that, even with headphones, this part of the game is incredibly annoying, as you have to use audio cues to track them down in an bland maze with no sense of direction. Not helping matters is the fact that you have to restart this segment from the very beginning if HER catches you. Also, both the last two phonographs and HER all randomly spawn in the maze. Very rarely, she'll spawn right on top of the first phonograph when you're two steps away from it, too late to change course.

** White Face's quotes look to indicate that it's just as scared as you are, but considering he's the one chasing you, it's possible he's just saying stuff to mock you.
* BreatherLevel: The dormitories seem like this at first, since they're brightly lit so White Face can't hide in the shadows anymore. This is also a breather in the fact that this level occurs immediately after one of the most significant scares from White Face so far.

* NightmareRetardant: One method to not be scared of White Face/this game anymore is to imagine that White Face is actually [[TheNightmareBeforeChristmas Jack Skellington's]] floating disembodied head. Jack or "White Face" chases and annoys the player because scaring people is simply part of Halloweentown's culture!

** A lot of the game's scariness is leeched away if you know how it works. It also assumes you're running a Windows and many of the extraneous files don't appear if you're running a Mac or--god forbid--some Linux distro.
