“Halloween Wars” returns October 4, Elvira to guest judge final episode.


Cassandra Peterson has made numerous cameo appearances as her famous alter-ego, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark. These cameos, mostly seen in docu-series and reality shows, include “Counting Cars,” “Epic Ink,” “Face Off” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” On October 25, though, Cassandra will add another notch to her bedpost…erm, resume…as she will make a featured appearance as the hostess with the mostess on the season five finale of “Halloween Wars.”

“Halloween Wars” is an extremely popular competition series which has aired on Food Network since October 2011. Each season, which consists of only four episodes, features five groups comprised of candy makers, pumpkin carvers and cake decorators who fight to create the ultimate Halloween themed display. One team is eliminated every episode with the winning team earning a $50,000 prize. This season will be hosted by Rossi Morreale after taking over for Justin Willman of “Cupcake Wars” fame.

“Halloween Wars” premieres on October 4, 2015, but remember – Elvira will not guest judge until the October 25 finale! So until then, unpleasant dreams…
