After watching Paris Hilton's new EDM video, we're pretty sure that nothing can scare us this Halloween. 

But just to be sure, here are our picks for Boston's top Halloween parties. 

The Beehive
You haven't seen a prom night with a body count like this since, well, Prom Night. The zombie dance party theme goes back to the 80's with cover band Safety, which means it's totally cool to twerk and twitch like the undead after a few festive SKYY Vodka cocktails.
Thu Oct 31 9p-2a. 541 Tremont St., South End (617-423-0069). Call for reservations. 

Revere Hotel
They say you shouldn't scream bloody murder in a crowded theatre, but we beg to differ. Screaming is encouraged at the Revere Hotel's Halloween party, which features a $2,500 costume contest and freaky performers cavorting to the sounds of DJs Matty D and Frank White inside the 6,700 sq. ft. Space 57 venue.
Thu Oct 31 9p-2a. 200 Stuart St., Theatre District (617-482-1800). $35 here

Lolita
The Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos is a lot like American Halloween, only with more tequila. We suggest you and your crew sign up for a little cultural exchange by going big with a VIP package featuring a bottle of Moet, four pitchers, and the best table in the private lounge.
Thu Oct 31 8p. 271 Dartmouth St., Back Bay (617-369-5609). $35-1,200 here.

The Hawthorne
You are what you drink, literally. The Hawthorne's Halloween party invites you to dress as your favorite cocktail, whether that means a dapper Old Fashioned or a grizzled Harvey Wallbanger. And with Hotel Commonwealth just an inviting flight of stairs away, it's not who you come as, it's who you leave with.
Thu Oct 31. 500A Commonwealth Ave., Kenmore Square (617-532-9150). $25 here.
