October 31, 2012 13 Nights of Hallowe'en 2012: Night #13 Trick 'r Treat (2007)
It's Hallowe'en! It's the thirteenth and final night, and movie. Not every year gets to have a specifically Hallowe'en themed movie for this auspicious night. Trick 'r Treat (2007) tells four stories that twist and turn amongst each other. They come together into a delicious gooey mass of holiday shenanigans. First up for acting staff is Dylan Baker as Steven. Dylan was in The Cell (2000), Spider-Man 2 (2004), and Spider-Man 3 (2007). Quinn Lord does double duty as Sam and Peeping Tommy. Quinn has been in Stargate SG-1 (1997) (TV), Masters of Horror (2005) (TV), Supernatural (2005) (TV), White Noise: The Light (2007), Fringe (2008) (TV), and R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour (2010) (TV).
Lauren Lee Smith plays Danielle and has been in Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction (1997) (TV), Dark Angel (2000) (TV), The Twilight Zone (2002) (TV), The Dead Zone (2002) (TV), and a regular on later seasons of The Listener (2009) (TV).

Alberto Ghisi as Chip, has been in Final Destination 3 (2006), Supernatural (TV), and Stargate: Atlantis (2004) (TV). I'd also like to mention Samm Todd as Rhonda the girl with the Jack-O'-Lanterns, even though she has no credits. Then we have Brian Cox as Mr. Kreeg. Brian has appeared in Hammer House of Horror (1980) (TV), The Ring (2002), X-Men 2: X-Men United, Doctor Who (2005) (TV), The Day of the Triffids (2009) (TV), Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), and will be in The Home (20XX). In another part of the film Gerald Paetz plays young Kreeg. Gerald can be seen in Lost Boys: The Tribe (2008), and has a lot of stunts credits.
Finishing the acting staff, Laura Mennell plays Allie. Laura's credits include Millennium (1996) (TV), Stargate SG-1 TV, Thir13en Ghosts (2001), Andromeda (2000) (TV), 11:11 (2004), Stargate: Atlantis (2004) (TV), Sanctuary (2008) (TV), Fringe (TV), Hard Ride to Hell (2010), Supernatural (TV), and is currently on Alphas 2011 (TV) as Nina.
