If dancing the night away is how you prefer to spend All Hallows Eve, you might want to head for Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium for Hard Haunted Mansion.

The Oct. 30-31 event features a who’s who of contemporary DJs and electro acts including Deadmau5, 2ManyDJs, The Bloody Beetroots, Crookers, Major Lazer, Steve Aoki and A-Trak. Also scheduled to be on hand for DJ sets are France’s Justice and the U.K.’s Basement Jaxx.

The party runs from 8 p.m. PST until 4 a.m. PST. Tickets and additional info are available at HardFest.com. Capacity is limited so get your tickets early.

If celebrating Samhain is more your thing, you’ll definitely want to pack your bags for Las Vegas’ Palms Casino Resort, where horror flick magazine Fangoria will be holding its inaugural Trinity of Terrors convention.

The Oct. 30 – Nov. 1 gathering will feature appearances by horror greats and celebs like Roger Corman, George A. Romero, Jeffrey Combs, John Waters, Ken Foree, Tom Atkins, Adrienne Barbeau, Malcolm McDowell and Dee Wallace, as well as a Halloween night performance by alt metal-masters Slipknot.

Fans can attend signings, browse vendors and exhibitors, sit in on panel discussions, take advantage of special effects make-up applications, enjoy video games, get tattooed, buy horror collectibles, drop in on VIP parties and attend screenings of more than a dozen new films, including “The House of the Devil,” “White and Blue” and the world premier of “Dark House” starring Combs.

Tickets are available at TrinityofTerrors.com and LasVegas.com.

If you live in or near Vegas, you might want to get in on the action by assisting the Fangoria crew to make it all happen.

You’ll need to be at least 18 (with I.D. to prove it), in good health, able to lift medium-sized boxes and spend long hours on your feet. You’ll also have to provide your own transportation and accomodations.

But it’ll all be worth it because you’ll be getting free admission to the event, a T-shirt, free autographs from some of the celebrity guests and lots of other great swag. (And just think, you didn’t even have to dress up like Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees and terrorize some little kid to get it.)

If you’d like to volunteer, fire off an email to Pam Koller at [email protected].

Whatever you do this Halloween, happy haunting!
