Los Angeles is still recovering from a crazy Halloween weekend. The highlights: 400,000-plus costumed freaks in West Hollywood for the city’s annual parade; Maxim filming a forthcoming film called Halloween House at the actual house used in the original Halloween (synergy!); two sold-out, hectic nights at the HARD Haunted Mansion music festival; and some starry soirees at Voyeur ( where Glee’s Matt Morrison held a private party) and the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (for Maroon 5’s Bacardi-sponsored annual throwdown). We musn’t forget our own bash at The Standard in West Hollywood (more on that later) or the opening party for L.A.’s newest supper club, called, er, Supperclub. After the jump, a short, spooky recap.
With established locales in Amsterdam, San Francisco, London, Singapore, and Istanbul, the Supperclub brand is familiar to world travelers on the hunt for a lucullan night out. The 13,500 square-foot space is awash in whites and boasts a clean, space-age look. More so than its international cousins, the Hollywood location inside the historic (and haunted) Vogue Theater takes its “club” half very seriously. No doubt the crowds were impressed by their surroundings, with aerialists dazzling the dance floor with a few moves of their own. Supperclub will hold a grand opening December 2, but will have its slow reveal all month, hosting several special events.
Downtown, a slightly younger demographic danced to a different beat at the HARD Haunted Mansion. Sunday night was the highlight of the two-day fest, with acts such as Underworld and Calvin Harris so good, it was scary. Festival favorite Boys Noize took over the after party at an inconspicuous warehouse, because apparently nobody works on Monday.

This being L.A., aspiring actresses and models lived up to their titles at the storied “Halloween House” in the shadow of the Hollywood Hills. On Sunday, the invite-only crowd flirted with fame as Patriot Pictures filmed a party scene for a forthcoming film dubbed Halloween House. It’s the first co-production for Alpha Media Group and Maxim magazine. The reality-show-within-a-horror movie set was packed with curvy creatures, who partied for real (surely the cameras had a little to do with it) in, as mentioned above, the very house where Michael Myers chopped up three young things, way back in 1978.
