Sam Hall
(b. March 11, 1921-September 26, 2014) was an American writer who worked on the original Dark Shadows television series, the 1991 Dark Shadows revival series, and the films House of Dark Shadows and Night of Dark Shadows. He also worked with series creator Dan Curtis, writing scripts for the 1973 television movie Frankenstein and 1975's The Two Deaths of Sean Doolittle, directed by frequent Dark Shadows director Lela Swift. Hall began work on Dark Shadows in November 1967, several months after his wife Grayson Hall had joined the program (June 1967). Among his many contributions to the show include the creation of the character Angelique.

Sam was born Allison Samuel Hall in Carrollton, Ohio, and graduated from Dartmouth and Yale. A veteran of the World War II Battle of the Bulge, Sam Hall was married to Dark Shadows star Grayson Hall in 1952. Their son, Matthew, later worked with his father on scripts for the soap opera One Life To Live as well as the 1991 Dark Shadows series. Despite many scenes from that series being liberally adapted from his work, Hall did not receive screen credit until Episode 4.

In the October 9, 1971 issue of TV Guide, Sam Hall contributed an article entitled Here's What Really Happened to Barnabas & Co. This article described the future fates of all of the major Dark Shadows characters following the final story arcs from the series which would have been filmed had the show not been cancelled. A teleplay of this article was provided as part of a documentary entitled Beyond the Shadows on Volume 200 of the MPI Dark Shadows VHS collector’s series, as narrated by Roger Davis. Hall went on to write for other daytime serials including General Hospital, One Life to Live and Santa Barbara.
