‘Tis the season for pumpkins and ghosts (also, two weeks to kill until Fallout 4 comes out). So, just in time for Halloween, feast your eyes on my list of best spooky, scary Skyrim mods you should try. And I don’t mean scary in a funny sense, like the mod that turns dragons into trains or the thousands of slutty Halloween costume waifu mods. I mean blood-curdling, extremely terrifying, crying in the fetal position, and only occasionally really-fucking-adorable Halloween mods. Enjoy!
The name says it all. This mod adds quests and decorations all over Skyrim for All Hallows’ Eve. Rivers run red with blood while pumpkins and lanterns decorate every building – it’s like Halloween puked all over Tamriel. My favorite city overhaul in this mod is Whiterun!
Because Hagravens weren’t already the scariest fucking things in Skyrim, some sadist decided to add even scarier voices and sound effects to them. I made the mistake of spawning 10 Hagravens at once … don’t do it if you value your sanity.
Some appropriate warpaints for Halloween. Eerily beautiful and the perfect look for the last thing your enemies see before they die.
Oh yay, now instead of one terrifying face, all the named Dragon Priests have UNIQUELY TERRIFYING faces straight out of your nightmares!
Ever get sick of kids asking you for candy on Halloween? Here’s a mod that will
make you think I’m a total serial killer let you perform satisfying kill moves on the children of Skyrim (skip to 0:29 to see). Don’t worry, poor Sond is a ginger kid, so it’s ok.
Ever have the urge to collect severed heads in pretty glass jars? You should probably see someone about that. But anyway, this mod adds a fun hunt for trophy heads in Skyrim.
Everyone always expects a skeleton or zombie mod in these Halloween round-ups, but those are so last Halloween. You know what’s really scary? Mannequins. Faceless, murderous mannequins running at you en masse, slaughtering your friends with their bare, splintery wooden hands.
Just a nice little pumpkin helmet for you to wear as you galavant around Tamriel this Halloween.
A screencap just doesn’t do this one justice, so watch the vid. The mask itself is horrifying, but what makes this mod great is how terrified you make the NPCs who see you wearing it. They pretty much shit pixels in their pants. Kind of hilarious.
This player home is expansive and eerie, but also super detailed and beautiful. You can spend your entire Halloween roaming these halls.
Instead of collecting candy this year for Halloween, why not collect skulls all over Skyrim? This mod adds unique skulls all over the place that you can collect and display proudly in your murder home, you sick freak.
In the mood for some Halloween shopping? Here’s your one stop shop for everything creep-tastic.
Pull a Frankenstein this year with this nifty little mod that adds creepy stitches to your character. Photos above by DajiaDovah, whom you should follow on Instagram because her Skyrim caps are wicked sick nasty (really good).
You know it was weird that you never saw Khajit or Argonian skulls in Skyrim. Well, this mod fixes that problem. Here, have a pile of Argonian skulls!
A Halloween dungeon to haunt your dreams. There are so many creepy details in this mod I can’t even. There’s even a clown … a fat murderous clown. Consider yourself warned.
Welp, if you haven’t been scared away by now, you’re a braver man/woman than I! Hope you liked the mods and as always, if you have anything to add, leave a comment!
