    Sam 

Sam

Played By: Quinn Lord

A strange young trick-or-treater wearing a flour sack mask and orange pyjamas, Sam appears throughout the film 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 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 Improbable Weapon User and a Killer Rabbit. His fight with Mr. Kreeg reveals him to be a pumpkin-headed demon of sorts, hence why he wears the mask.

    Main Characters in "The Principal" 

Principal Steven Wilkins

Played By: Dylan Baker

A seemingly innocent school principal who loves Halloween, Steven Wilkins actually hates those who disrespect the customs of Halloween and kills those who break the rules. He has a son, Billy, who appears to be molding into his Daddy's Little Villain. He later moonlights as a vampire-like man wearing a hooded cloak, and stalks Laurie. Unfortunately, this doesn't go well when Laurie is revealed to be a werewolf wanting her first kill, and Steven is the unlucky victim.

Billy Wilkins

Played By: Connor Christopher Levins

Billy is Steven's loud, but beloved child who loves spending time with his father, particularly on Halloween. He is very enthusiable about carving the jack o'lantern, actually Charlie's severed head. He also considers Charlie Brown to be an asshole.

Charlie

Played By: Brett Kelly

A Fat Bastard kid who uses Halloween to cause mischief and steal candy, even though he's diabetic. His attempt to steal candy from Steven's porch results in Steven poisoning him. His head is then removed and used as a jack o'lantern.

The School Bus Kids

Eight disturbed children who were sent to their watery deaths thirty years ago. They are brought back from the dead by Sam to exact their Ghostly Goals on Halloween.

  • Abusive Parents: Their parents paid Mr. Kreeg to drown their children so they could be free of their burdens.
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Did they kill the other children to help Rhonda? Alternatively, however, jack o'laterns seem to have a protective power in this universe, so its possible that once they were smashed, the kids just unleashed there rage on whoever happened to be there.
  • Back from the Dead: Thanks to Macy kicking a jack o'lantern into the lake the bus fell into.
  • Bus Full of Innocents
  • Children Are Innocent: They were before they died.
  • Creepy Child: There are eight undead kids to chose from, and all are wearing their Halloween costumes and desiring flesh.
  • Ghostly Goals: To get revenge on those who wronged them, and those who torment other kids who are 'different'.
  • Idiot Savant: Implied in the case of at least one of them, who is heard reciting pi in a flashback.
  • The Undead
  • Undead Child
  • We Help the Helpless: A possible interpretation for their murder of Rhonda's tormentors.

Laurie

Played By: Anna Paquin

A young, pretty girl Laurie wishes to spend this Halloween trying to have her "first time". She's accompanied by her older sister Danielle, and two other friends, who are all going to a party together. She spends much of the film wandering around dressed as Little Red Riding Hood until she attacked by a vampire, actually Steven.

    Main Characters in "Meet Sam" 

Mr. Kreeg

Played By: Brian Cox

Steven's neighbour, an aging Jerk Ass recluse with a Dark and Troubled Past. He has an Angry Guard Dog named Spite (seriously), and arms himself with a shotgun if there's trouble. In the film, Mr. Kreeg hates Halloween and gets an unwelcome visit from Sam, resulting into a Hopeless Boss Fight with the supernatural child. It is revealed that he is the bus driver who planned on driving eight insane children to their deaths thirty or so years ago, being the only survivor after the school bus the kids were on was accidentally driven into a lake by one of the scared children. Mr. Kreeg survives his encounter with Sam, but is later visited by the undead bus children who kill him.

    Other Characters 

Emma and Henry

Played By: Leslie Bibb & Tahmoh Penikett

A loving couple who have an unpleasant Halloween with their various run-ins with the other characters, plus Emma wearing a bulky robot costume. Returning home, Henry runs inside to watch a sex tape whilst Emma clears up the Halloween decorations before midnight, resulting in Sam paying her a visit and killing her by slashing her throat with a broken lollipop.

  • Continuity Cameo: Emma and Henry appear throughout the film, often helping to establish continuity in the Anachronic Order.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Since Emma is chronologically the last person to die in the film, Sam is so annoyed at this point with rulebreakers that he slashes her throat and then cuts her body up and hangs it on display about the garden.
  • Dead Star Walking: Emma dies before the opening credits, although chronologically she's the last casualty of the night.
  • Lazy Husband: Apparently he sleeps for half the day, plays video games for the other, and likes watching sex tapes.
  • Robot Girl: Invoked, but she's only wearing a costume.

Shadow Man

A mysterious man shrouded in darkness who stalks Sam in the short Season's Greetings. He follows Sam into an alley way, and appears to beat him up. That is until Sam emerges carrying the man in his sack. Does not appear in the film proper, but is featured in the Season's Greetings short.
