REDEADS: LEGEND OF ZELDA
The ReDeads are without a doubt the creepiest thing ever put forward by a Zelda game. Tall and skinny in most appearances, the worst is Ocarina of Time where they are made of what looks like an extremely skinny man with a clay mask with it’s mouth forced open. Their always horrible screams (again, Ocarina is worst: Link Here) stun, allowing them to jump on you and squeeze you to death – while if you kill one of them the group will all huddle around the body and cry until it despawns.
ASH ZOMBIES: MORROWIND
Created by the Sixth House of Morrowind to do their bidding, these monsters are what appears to be dark elves with their faces and brains ripped out, leaving just a black and bloody hole. While not the most dangerous, these things are horrible for two main reasons: their moans (Link Here), and their tendency to attack you while you sleep. Get the Bloodmoon expansion and you are regularly woken up by Dark Brotherhood attacks, but when the screen fades in with these it’s even creepier.
HEAD CREATURES: VAMPIRE:THE MASQURADE – BLOODLINES
A lot of the creatures in this brilliant RPG are weird and gruesome, but for some reason these Geodude rejects are what get to me. They crawl on two hands, they jump and they’re frustrating to get a hit on, there’s just something about them that creep me out immensely – especially in the snuff video quest.
BANSHEES: MASS EFFECT 3
Created from Reaper tech and Ardat-Yakshi (pure-breed Asari), Banshees are late-game enemies that more than deserve the hate and fear they get. Appearing as floating dead bodies with metallic stalks coming out of them, the oddest thing about their design is they look pregnant – Ardat-Yakshi are sterile. Hearing a Banshee scream (Link: Here) is bad enough at any difficulty level, but playing on insane could mean instant death if you’re not quick and stocked up on medi-gel.
FAST ZOMBIES: HALF-LIFE 2
I have no problem with regular head-crab zombies in HL:2, but these things freak me out so much I had to put the game down for a year. Paired down to muscle and bone, these zombies are quick and totally surround you in Ravenholm, all while sounding like a bad hybrid of a rabid gorilla and Tie-Fighter (Link: Here)
