Is there a backstab animation in skyrim?
I am just wondering if in Skyrim there is a backstab animation, when using a small blade and sneaking behind an opponent, much like the regular slo mo animations that occur when getting a critical hit kill?
(is this a slash to the throat? simple backstab? does this differ and occur on human/monster targets?)

Yes they do have a animation. Look HERE for a video on how to perform a backstab.
No perks are needed to perform the backstab animations, just that you need to perform enough damage for a 1 hit kill from stealth.
The official strategy guide confirms that they are random, and that they do no extra damage: they’re pure aesthetics. It suggests that you can increase your chances by executing a power attack on the last enemy in a group.
Hope this helped, cheers marco
