Best Sam (Trick "r Treat) Halloween Costume Guide

Sam, who gets his name from Samhain (one of the origins of Halloween), is a fictional character who appears in the 2007 horror/dark comedy film Trick ‘R Treat. He is played by child actor Quinn Lord. Disguising himself as an innocent looking child dressed in a creepy costume complete with a burlap sack mask and buttons for eyes, Sam is actually a demonic creature. He takes it upon himself to enforce the rules of Halloween and dish out some harsh justice to those who don’t embrace the holiday.

Sam (Trick "r Treat) Cosplay Costumes

Sam has a particularly creepy look which is great for cosplay. His look is based somewhat on a scarecrow, which is always a popular image for Halloween costumes. However, something much darker and more demonic lies below this little guy’s burlap sack mask. His look is certainly unique and quite scary, so you’re going to have heaps of fun with this one.

Horror movie characters are always a big hit for Halloween, so if you want some friends to join you in paying tribute to some of the silver screen’s most dreaded characters, check out some of our costume ideas like Michael Myers, Ghostface from Scream, Freddy Krueger or Jason Vorhees. And remember, Sam is watching you at Halloween, so if you’re not getting into the spirit, you’d better watch your back.

About Sam (Trick "r Treat)

Sam, or Samhain, is a character in the 2007 dark comedy/horror film Trick ‘r Treat, which is an anthology movie tied together by this main antagonist. Sam serves as a keeper of Halloween traditions, punishing those who don’t embrace the celebrations or anybody who breaks the rules of Halloween. Being Halloween, he is able to hide among the other trick or treaters, appearing as a small child with a burlap sack mask and dragging a sack behind him. The sack is covered in blood, leading us to believe there is something more sinister than candy in there.

He travels to a different town each Halloween, dishing out his own unique (and deadly) brand of justice to those who break the Halloween rules, and far from being a cute kid collecting candy, the demonic face beneath Sam’s mask is the stuff of nightmares!
