Halloween Wars

Ghosts, gore and ghoulishly good competition — it's all on the menu when five teams of spooktacular challengers come together for a fifth frightening season of Halloween Wars, premiering Sunday , Oct. 4 at 9|8c. Featuring the expert collaboration of a master cake artist, a candy craftsman and a skilled pumpkin carver, the teams facing off for Halloween glory — as well as a whopping $50,000 prize — must come prepared to not only concoct over-the-top sweet creations but also deliver devilishly creepy designs. From the Small Scare displays in the first round to the larger, more demanding Spine Chiller presentations in the final round, competitors will be challenged to bring frightening themes to life in the form of their scary-good designs.

On hand to host this Halloween celebration is actor Rossi Morreale, while the returning judges, special-effects makeup artist Brian Kinney and cake decorator Shinmin Li, will take their places on the panel alongside a rotating roster of special guests.

Get in the spirit of fright night by checking out some of past seasons' most-devilish designs, and mark your calendars for the Season 5 premiere of Halloween Wars.
