Carrie White may be considered by many to be the worst prom date in all of cinematic history. In Stephen King's classic Carrie, the telekinetic teen decimated her entire graduating class (and eventually the whole town) before the dance was over, and she did it without lifting a finger. But we would be remiss not to mention the circumstances leading up to that final showdown: Carrie suffered at the hands of an overbearing mother and mean-spirited classmates who relentlessly bullied her every day; it was that combination that ultimately pushed Carrie to the point of no return.

On Sunday, Oct. 6, Food Network premieres the third season of the competitive reality show "Halloween Wars," which pits cake decorators, candy makers and pumpkin carvers against one another in search of the $50,000 prize.
Judges are pumpkin carver Robert Childers, cake artist Veronique de Groot and candy crafter Heather Hurlbert.
Host Justin Willman sees his role as a multifaceted one.
"I wear many hats," he says. "I'm the referee, I'm the cheerleader, I'm the emcee, I provide the color commentary, I've got to tease the tension. As you know, it is a war.
"It's serious business. As a performer, as an entertainer, I like to release the tension and put people at ease, but for good television, you've got to build on that tension.
"So I walk the line between the two -- crack people up when I need to, or let them wallow in their awkwardness, which makes great television. »
"Halloween Wars" returns to the Food Network for a third season tonight, October 6, at 9pm Et/Pt, running for four delicious episodes. Read on for what's in store for this year's horror-centric judges.
During the competition, five teams consisting of a pumpkin carving expert, cake artist, and candy craftsman battle it out to create heart-stopping Halloween themed displays out of pumpkin, cake, and sugar.

There’s a popular image that has been circulating the interwebs for quite some time of a Venn-Diagram showing People who like horror movies, people who like musicals, and serial killers. Apparently, if you like horror movies And musicals, you’re a serial killer. Well boys, I guess that makes me Aileen Wuornos. Often mistaken as a genre only those that fancy flamboyant men in tights and anything Andrew Lloyd Webber can enjoy, musicals are actually one of the earliest forms of cinema. Among the first 25 films to be entered in the Library of Congress, both Singin’ In The Rain and Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs made the cut, and they’re both musicals.
