19. Island Living Sirens by Zero’s Sims 4 Mods & Comics

The mermaid life can be darker than sunshine and rainbows.

Mermaids in The Sims 4 have always been somewhat mischievous, but they can now be deadly with this mod created by Patron user Zero. After purchasing siren kelp from your Sims computer, a mermaid Sim can choose to eat it and trade their humanity for the soul of a deadly sea creature. Doing this gives Sims a thirst for plasma as well as the ability to lure Sims into the water with haunting siren songs. If the life of a deadly siren does get exhausting, do not worry- as eating another siren kelp will reverse the curse and turn your fishy Sim back into a normal mermaid. 

Complete Mod Features:

  • Turn your Sim into a deadly sea siren by purchasing siren kelp through their computer. Retrospectively, they can eat the siren kelp to return to a mermaid. 
  • Gain a thirst for plasma and lure sims into the ocean to drink from them.

17. Cursed Painting by Sacrificial Mods

Test your fate with the Cursed Painting.

Experience revamped nostalgia with this creepy career from The Sims 2.

Calling all Sims aficionados! When the Sims 2: Apartment Life came out with the oddly exciting Paranormal Career, everyone was swept away by the simple yet stunning rabbit-hole activity.

13. Monster Factory by NecroDogMTSandS4S

Create a monster out of cadavers with this death defying mod.

The Sims has always been popular for the many occults it has introduced over the years, but Patreon user NecroDog may have found out how to make the goriest one yet. Using the Monster Factory mod, Sims are able to harvest body parts by gravedigging or by purchasing them online. After they do this they can continue to put the body pieces together and then.. IT’S ALIVE!

Even though the monster appears as a regular Sim wrapped in bandage, it is pretty freaky to know that they were put together in a Frakenstein type of fashion. Try building a science lab led by an evil scientist who has to raise a household of monsters for a challenging and creepy twist!

Complete Mod Features:

  • Harvest body parts by gravedigging or ordering them through the computer.

12. Autonomous Vampire Turning by PolarBearSims

Create a town overrun by vampires.

If you feel as if The Sims 4 doesn’t have enough vampires running around in the game, This mod by PolarBearSims is for you. It is a rather simple mod, as all it does is allows vampire Sims to autonomously turn mortal Sims while allowing mortal sims to be asked to turn instead of on command. Keep it in your game for a while though, and you will begin to realize that the population is becoming more and more undead. 

After time there will be very few mortal Sims making for an apocalyptic type of gameplay. This mod definitely adds tons of story even if it’s a small change. Will you let vampires overrun the world or will you do something to find a cure? 

Complete Mod Features:

  • Vampires autonomously turn mortal Sims all over the world without being commanded.

11. The Haunted Mirror by Sacrificial Mods

Summon an undead bride using her haunted mirror.

Bloody Mary can be more than a myth with the Haunted Mirror mod by Sacrificial. Rumor has it that the maniacal soul of a murdered bride was trapped in the mirror on her wedding day. Do you dare to summon Hannah the Bride? When Sims chant the Bride’s name into the cursed mirror, a woman named Hannah Ashford will appear somewhere next to the mirror. If you do not protect yourself before calling her name out, she will more than likely use her chainsaw to give any Sim she can find a brutal fate.

Be careful once you call her name, as she never truly leaves the game. She will venture away from the playable lot but will still be able to appear later. If you are up for an ultimate challenge, you can chant multiple brides names and double the chaos. Be warned; the vengeful bride does not make things easy at all!

  • The Haunted Mirror, a new build mode object.
  • A new and utterly chaotic NPC who will kill everyone in her path, Hannah the Bride.
