Video: Sam (Actor Quinn Lord) Gives Us a Treat for Halloween


Every year like clockwork I attend the annual Texas Frightmare Weekend in Dallas, TX. It's a three-day horror convention that should not be missed if you're a genre fan. With actors Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich in attendance, 2015's event held an unofficial "Scream" theme.

To fully immerse myself in the "Scream" premise, I walked around and asked celebrities in attendance a two-part question. "What's your favorite scary movie and why?" Everyone from Malcolm McDowell to Julian Sands and Tara Reid took time to answer.

For some Halloween fun, I thought it would be cool to post the answer to that question as it was given to me by someone who starred in a movie that's become a staple of the holiday season. Sixteen-year-old Quinn Lord portrayed the pumpkin-headed Sam in Writer / Director Michael Dougherty’s modern cult classic "Trick 'r Treat.”

In “Trick ‘r Treat,” interwoven stories demonstrate that some traditions are best not forgotten as the residents (Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker) of a small town face real ghosts and goblins on Halloween. Tales of terror reveal the consequences of extinguishing a Jack-o-Lantern before midnight and a grumpy hermit's encounter with a sinister trick-or-treater.

Lord was kind enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule signing autographs and greeting fans to entertain my query. He was a very nice guy who has starred in several different genre movies and TV shows over the years. Lord’s blessed us with his appearances in “R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour,” “The Hole,” “Supernatural,” and more. You can hear his answers to my questions in the featured video.
