The ghostly holiday is almost upon us and if you are not the type to skulk about during this mystic time, you are probably looking for something to raise your spiritual plane of excitement. Atlanta has exactly what you need to scare your ghost and goblins back in line with a celebration to make the night oh so fine. Here are five of the craziest Halloween parties you ever want to come across.

Prom of the Living Dead
Center Stage & Vinyl
1374 W. Peachtree St. N.W.
Atlanta, GA 30309
(404) 885-1365

Price: $15 over 21 only
Date: October 26 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The creators of this freak show said they would never bring this prom party back to life and that is a compliment. After a few years of being dead, this celebration has been resurrected and you are invited to join in the horror. You can’t miss a party that comes around once every few years because you will be missing the party of the century. Check out DJ Swivel as he spins power on the ones and twos. Remember, anything with the word “dead” in the title has got to be great.

You’ve got to have sexy to go along with the scary. Opera Nightclub is starting to sell tickets to its bomb Halloween party and sexy costumes are encouraged. If you have never been to Opera, plan on going. This Halloween, it will be shutting the holiday season down. Check out the VIP party bus if you want to trick-or-treat in style and remember, if you are not wearing a costume, dress code is enforced.

Halloween Boonanza III
Buckhead Theatre

Atlanta, GA 30305
(404) 843-2825

Price: $13
Date: October 27 starting at 7 p.m.

This party has a unique theme which the producers call a “social mess.” If you like Michael Jackson, then get ready to feel the “Thriller” because this party is about the bad man himself from beyond the grave. The Buckhead Theater is being turned into the Neverland Ranch, so hide your kids but not your costumes. Find your inner Michael Jackson so you can fit into the retro “PYT” party.
