things that go bump in the night

Some of the images that we associate with Halloween are bats and vampires, black cats, witches, ghosts, haunted houses, witches and other creatures and things that go bump in the night.
Das scheint eine allgmeingültige Floskel in Amerika zu sein, das benutzen die Amis immer wenn es um etwas Übernatürliches oder Unerklärliches geht. Wie genau könnte man das denn ins Deutsche übersetzen?

... ihr Unwesen treiben ...

It's part of a traditional Scottish prayer.

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

Sorry, don't know the DE though :(
