"This self-induced isolation thing you got going on, it's not healthy. "
—Hallie's shrink-like commentary to her roommate and best friend, Sidney Prescott.

Hallie was a main character in Scream 2 (1997 film, set in 1998). She is the roommate and close friend of Woodsboro Murders survivor, Sidney Prescott at Windsor College, where she studied Psychology. She was killed by Mickey Altieri while trying to escape with Sidney.

Hallie was the seventh character to fall victim in the 1998 Windsor College Murders in Ohio, in the second Ghostface killing spree. She was killed by Mickey Altieri.



Hallie is a Psychology major from Ohio, U.S, born in approximately 1978. She enrols at Windsor College as a freshman sometime in 1997. During this time, she became acquainted with her roommate, Sidney Prescott, who relocated far away from her hometown of Woodsboro, California, and they soon became close friends.

The nature of Sidney's closeness to Hallie is never elaborated on, but she appears to function as a new female best friend, after the loss of Tatum Riley, Sidney's best friend growing up.

During her time at college, she became a member of the Delta Lambda Zeta sorority. This sorority also consists of Lois and Murphy. Its fraternity big brother, Omega Kaplan Zeta is what pre-med student, Derek was apart of. It seems with this connection, Sidney's roommate, Hallie, may have introduced Derek to her roommate, Woodsboro survivor Sidney Prescott.

The Windsor College Murders

Hallie wants to dance with somebody else.

Hallie is seen to be sharing a room with Sidney at Windsor College. She shows worry for Sidney's isolationist tendencies, calling it "unhealthy", and says she must attend the sorority mixer that night.

After being told to turn on the news, she becomes aware of Windsor seniors, Maureen Evans and Phil Stevens being killed the night before by a Ghostface copycat. After Sidney reunites with Dewey, Lois and Murphy approach her about the sorority mixer. She becomes offended after they leave, when Mickey insults the Delta Lambda Zetas. Hallie, however, appears oblivious to the fact that Lois seems to forget her name and simply calls her "Pledge".

At the mixer, Sidney says Hallie is taking her Psychology major too seriously. But Hallie asserts that "despite its trivialities", it is a healthy environment for her to be in. She appears excited to be at the event. Also there, Hallie is seen rejecting Windsor College student, Mickey Altieri's advances at the sorority party. This occurs sometime shortly after Cici Cooper's death.

Hallie is killed by Ghostface.

Hallie is visibly shocked after Derek is attacked by Ghostface. After Randy is also killed, she comforts Sidney. When Sidney is put under 24/7 protection, Hallie goes with her and the two bodyguards, Richards and Andrews. After the bodyguards are both killed, Hallie and Sidney are caught in the back seat with the doors locked.

After Ghostface crashes the car and is unconscious in the driver's seat, Sidney realizes the only way out is through the window at his side. After Sidney escapes through the window, she encourages and supports Hallie as she does the same.

Hallie's death

Sidney, wanting to know who the killer really is, runs back to the car but sees that he is gone. When Sidney shouts out this to Hallie, Ghostface jumps out from behind the rubble and grabs Hallie. Unable to escape, Ghostface is easily able to stab Hallie four times in the chest before throwing her dead corpse on the ground. Sidney, horrified, runs in the opposite direction. She later informs Derek of Hallie's demise, before Derek himself is killed by Mickey—who is both of their killers.
