->'''Played By''': Quinn Lord

A strange young trick-or-treater wearing a flour sack mask and orange pyjamas, Sam appears throughout the film [[ChekhovsGunman without much purpose.]] He originally appeared in Michael Dougherty's short "Seasons Greetings". However, it becomes clear there's more to Sam than there appears. He is revealed to be [[spoiler: the Spirit of Halloween]], laying the law down on those who break the rules of Halloween (wear a costume, give out candy, never extinguish a jack o'lantern before midnight) with killing intent and revealed to be an ImprobableWeaponUser and a KillerRabbit. His fight with Mr. Kreeg reveals him to be [[spoiler: a pumpkin-headed demon of sorts]], hence why he wears the mask.
