Oh, Halloween.

A night when bloodsuckers rockin' red pasties and fishnet stockings fist-pump with flesh-eating zombies, when half-naked camo girls grind up on shredded Top Gun pilots, when sexy superheroes down candy corn jello shots alongside evil villains.

Yes, it's that one night of the year when it's socially acceptable to dress extra-skanky anyone can be anything they want for a few hours, no questions asked. And since we live in WTF Florida, you know the freak factor is always at an all-time high on All Hallows' Eve.

Here are Miami's ten best Halloween parties. No tricks, just treats.

And though there will only ever be one Hef, ladies and gentlemen can watch their dreams come to life as Hugh's models host Hyde's Halloween Masquerade ball. Just don't forget to bring your bunny ears and velvet robe.

Miami's Ten Best Halloween 2014 Parties

Cedric Gervais' Sh!t Show Stikes Back. With Dave Sol. Friday, October 31, 11 p.m., Story, 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2424; storymiami.com. Tickets cost $30 to $40 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. You know it's gonna be a total Sh!t Show when EDM producer Cedric Gervais discovers he's really Luke Skywalker. Yes, that's the Grammy-winning remixer's costume of choice this Halloween. And it seems will be joined in the DJ booth by a sexed-up Princess Leia and a raver Chewbacca. But here's the weird part -- Darth Vader (his father?) has apparently become a woman who looks amazing in a black bikini.

Haunted Mansion. Friday, October 31, 11 p.m., Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-8411; mansionmiami.com. Tickets cost $30 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. All Hallows' Eve is full of surprises, especially at the Haunted Mansion. Last year, vikings, she-devils, and pleather-clad dancers with welding torches took over South Beach's Mansion Nightclub. Oh, it was a total freak show. But with this year's $2,500 costume contest, we can only imagine the madness that's about to go down at SoBe's spookiest party spot.

Wayans' Freaky Halloween. Hosted by Shawn and Marlon Wayans. Friday, October 31, 11 p.m. Cameo, 1445 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-532-2667; cameomiami.com. Tickets cost $30 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Ever seen Marlon Wayans' 2013 flick A Haunted House? Well, don't be surprised if you walk into Cameo on Halloween and discover the bottle-service tables have all disappeared. That's because Marlon and his bro Shawn will be in the club, and they're being followed by ghosts who hate feng shui. But even if you're a little creeped out by the empty room, don't try to be a hard ass like that "hummie" Ray Ray and demand to know, "What happened to yo' furniture, cuz?" Let's just say that didn't end well for him.

Strangers & Friends Halloween. With Erick Morillo and Patrick M. Saturday, November 1, 10 p.m., Space, 34 NE 11th St., Miami; 305-375-0001; clubspace.com. Tickets cost $30 to $45 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. The best part about October 31 falling on a Friday is that the party (and corpse bride costumes) keep rollin' all weekend long. So Let the Freak Out and go wild with Erick Morillo at the Halloween edition of Space's Strangers & Friends bash. Stay spooky, party people.
