Bennett "Ben" Samuel Tramer (June 20, 1961 - October 31, 1978) is a character that is first mentioned in the original Halloween and appears in Halloween II, played by Jack Verbois.


Bennett Tramer was born to Carl and Bonnie Tramer on June 20th, 1961 in Haddonfield, Illinois. He is stated to have been liked by Laurie Strode. Annie Brackett learned of this from Laurie, after which she called him regarding the high school dance.

In Halloween II, Ben was chased by Dr. Loomis and Sheriff Brackett, who thought that he was was Michael Myers because he was wearing a similar mask. As Ben crossed a street without looking both ways as he was distracted by the panic, a police vehicle rammed him to a parked van, causing a fiery explosion and instantly killing him.

He later was taken to a coroner's department where Graham did dental tests to determine whether he was Michael or not. After inspection, it was revealed that he was not, as his teeth did not match those of someone who would be 21 like Michael Myers. Loomis and the policemen then realized that he was an innocent civilian and Michael was still out there, which was later confirmed to everyone on the news.

Ben was buried in Mt. Sinclair Cemetery on November 4th, 1978.
