You're getting more into the sound design field when attacking complex, unreproductible sounds like that. Go crazy with the layering of different sounds, keeping only what you want from each.

In my mind, without seeing picture, the arm would be a combination of the chicken carcass smash, some kind of snappy vegetable (probably a cucumber) being cut slowly by a knife (really close-mic'ed to get that "smooch" sound), some kind of liquid squirt and, of course, a resonating metal sound to emphasize the blade.

The skull is more straightforward. In my experience, head injuries get more of an "ouch" reaction if the sound consists mainly of a "thump". A real heavy, dry "thump", with a bit of crackle in there. If you go too far with the crack, it'll sound fake very fast. Aim for the sound you'd hear if it was your own head hitting. That'll be more terrifying for the listeners.

Above all, Have fun. This kind of sound design is what makes this job the best.
