|~ Laurie before killing Steven.|
Laurie is an antagonist from the 2007 horror film Trick 'r Treat.
She is a young woman who, along with her sister Danielle and her friends Maria and Janet, who tricks and lures men to their deaths on Halloween night, as they are all werewolves.
She was portrayed by Anna Paquin.
At the beginning of the film Laurie is is shy and self-conscious. Her older sister, Danielle, tries to boost her confidence by taking her to a Halloween party with two of her friends Janet and Maria. The girls all dress in fairy tale costumes and Laurie ends up as Little Red Riding Hood, a choice she despises though her sister tells her "it's tradition". They walk through town on the way to the party picking up dates but Laurie is disappointed and discouraged. She opts to meet the girls at the party later.
Meanwhile, a young woman makes out with a masked man in an alley. He affectionately kisses her neck but, when she looks down, she sees blood running down her body. The man smiles, revealing blood on his fangs.
The woman screams and makes her way to the street where the people are gathered for the parade. A couple walks by, but ignores her, thinking she's just another drunk party-goer covered in make-up blood. The woman turns around to see the vampire standing behind her and screams as he swings his cloak around her. He leaves her dead body on the sidewalk leaning against a building, as if she's merely passed out, and walks away.
At the bonfire party in the woods, Danielle stands alone worrying about Laurie. Janet assures her that Laurie's fine but Danielle wonders, saying that their mother "always said Laurie was the runt of the litter". As Laurie walks down a dimly lit path in the woods, she senses someone is following her and shouts out that she's not in the mood and they'd better come out. When no one responds, she turns and comes face to face with the vampire.
He grabs her by the neck and holds her against a tree, saying, "My, my, what big eyes you have", before biting her neck. At the party, the girls are startled when a cloaked body falls out of a tree near the fire. Danielle nervously approaches the body and removes the cloak to see the vampire, bleeding and begging for help. His mask is removed and Steven Wilkins blinks in the fire light, whimpering.
Laurie appears and assures everyone she's ok, despite the blood oozing from her neck. She approaches Wilkins and straddles him, telling him to bear with her since it's her first time. The other girls start to dance as Wilkins looks around in shock to see that all of their dates are dead. Laurie unbuttons his shirt as the girls rip off their skin, revealing coarse fur and lupine fangs. Laurie begins to change herself and leans down to Wilkins to whisper "My, my, what big eyes you have" before lunging into Wilkins' neck. The other werewolves finish the remains of their dates, howling at the moon.
She is later on seen in the film for the last time when the girls laugh as they almost hit Rhonda on the road.
At first, Laurie is shown to be an insecure, anxious and vulnerable young woman who fears sexuality and men in general. However, she is in actuality a cunning and bloodthirsty werewolf, as she deliberately lured Richard Wilkins into her stalking her into the woods, so she could transform into a werewolf and kill and devour him, losing her "virginity".
- She is shown wearing a ‘Little Red-Riding Hood’ costume throughout the film, which is darkly ironic since Laurie herself is a werewolf.
