With Halloween just around the corner, stores are already setting up freaky displays. 

Big Lots has quite possibly the most magically creepy decorations this year. However, if you're looking for something based on cult-classic movies, then Target has Nightmare Before Christmas gear. If you're already looking for costume ideas, try out something from Stranger Things, or go for a chic, subtle look with spooky-inspired fashion. 

Either way you'll need to decorate your haunted house to be the best on the block, and these magical animated skeletons are the way to do it.

Animated Unicorn Skeleton, $50

Standing more than 4 feet in height and 6 feet in length, this massive moving mythical creature is not for the faint of heart. Walk in front of the motion-activated skeleton and it will move its head and wings as its mouth glows red or blue. This dragon would be the perfect photo opportunity at your next costume party.

Standing slightly shorter than the dragon above, this 2-foot-tall, 4-foot-long skeleton is less distracting as its larger counterpart. Sound-activated, this dragon will screech and glow anytime someone enters a room. Perfect for a homemade haunted house, it will spook trick-or-treaters all night. 

Animated Spider Skeleton, $12

As part of the mini animal skeleton series, this goat is positively bewitching. Standing at 7 inches high, the mini figure would be great guarding a candy bowl or situated on a mantel during the spooky season. Just like its spider counterpart, this animal's eyes glow green, and it moves its mouth in a scary fashion.

Animated Mini Pup Skeleton, $12

Your household pet might be freaked out by this puppy skeleton, so expect them to get a little jumpy — especially when it wags its tail, chomps its jaws, and its eyes glow green. This mini figure sits at only 7 inches tall. 

Animated Mini Unicorn Skeleton, $12

Also at 7 inches tall, this figure's eyes glow and it whinnies menacingly while its jaw clicks open and shuts. A tiny version of the giant unicorn skeleton, this adorable counterpart is slightly less overwhelming. The normally innocent and magical creature has been given a frightening makeover in this seasonal decoration. 

Animated Possessed Unicorn, $20

What looks like a harmless stuffed animal turns into a toothy, angry creature at the push of a button. This plush unicorn gnarls at its Halloween victims. It will most likely frighten small children, so be warned. 

Hanging Skeleton Mermaid, $6

This skeleton dressed as a mermaid is a great decoration for the magically creepy theme going on here. Hang it from trees to freak out trick-or-treaters, or scatter throughout haunted houses to add that magical touch. The metallic mermaid tail looks like it belongs in a Disney movie, but the creepy skeleton aspect would make it perfect for a horror film.
