On any given day, Cutthroat Kitchen is a scary place for chefs to be. It's full of unforeseen pitfalls, like diabolical sabotages, not to mention an evilicious host who has no qualms about unleashing horror upon the competitors. But beginning next month, things will get a lot more frightening in the Cutthroat arena, as Alton Brown is set to kick off Cutthroat Kitchen: Tournament of Terror.

Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10|9c, fearless chefs will come together for a five-part celebration of all things spooktacular. In true Cutthroat fashion, there will be no shortage of startling sabotages, but this time the focus will be on Halloween-themed cooking and challenges. Think witches, mummies and ghosts — and their usual tricks and treats, of course. A total of 16 chefs will face off over four preliminary heats, then it's on to the grand finale, when the winners of those early rounds will return for an anything-can-happen final showdown.

Ready to meet the competitors?  See which 16 brave chefs are set to face off with Alton's most haunting and evilicious sabotages yet.

Ready yourselves for the eviliciousness that awaits and mark your calendars. The Tournament of Terror premieres Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10|9c.
