There are plenty of ways to spice up your Minecraft gameplay. However, if you’re looking for a horrific experience, you’re likely not going to find it in the base game. It’s rated E10+ for a reason — it’s safe for kids to play without scary images and graphic violence.

But, for those of us who want a more intense, heart-pounding experience, there are tons of mods to choose from to make a scary gameplay experience. No matter what kind of horror you’re looking for, someone in the modding community has got you covered with their own scary mod.

1. The Legend of Herobrine Mod

What would Minecraft horror be today without the original creepypasta Herobrine? This spooky mod adds the infamous Herobrine character to the game but keeps the adventure and atmosphere otherwise similar to vanilla gameplay.

Herobrine has been a famous figure in the commnunity since Minecraft came out, beginning as a creepypasta where a mysterious figure would sometimes appear on your server and haunt you. The Legend of Herobrine mod is by far one of the most popular Herobrine mods for the game and keeps the original story of Herobrine alive by creating the same foreboding atmosphere the creepypasta has.

2. Horror Elements

If you’re fed up with having to use Redstone as blood in your Minecraft builds, then you need the Horror Elements mod. This mod adds tons of creepy atmosphere to your game, where your maps will now spawn with spooky buildings and horrific elements. You’ll find sacrificial shrines, corpses, and more bloody scenes spawned across the map whether you’re in creative or survival. This mod lets you stumble on some truly scary content while you’re out exploring.

3. The Hordes

While zombies are already present in Minecraft, The Hordes mod ups the danger by making the zombie virus contagious and sending hordes of the undead after you. If you or any other players and hit by a zombie, you’ll be infected and either become a zombie yourself of perish. At night, you’ll be faced with massive hordes of zombies coming after you. It’s perfect to live your zombie apocalypse fantasy, and makes zombies much more dangerous to encounter instead of them being just any other mob.

9. Whispers of the Wendigo

Being stuck in freezing snow is already creepy enough without a dangerous creature stalking you, but the Whispers of the Wendigo mod gives you just this. Whenever you enter a Snowy or normal Taiga biome, you’ll be stalked and hunted by the terrifying Wendigo. You’re able to fight back with rifles that can sometimes be found in log cabins, but sometimes you’ll just stumble across the Wendigo’s previous victims instead.

10. Sanity: Descent Into Madness

This mod adds a whole new mechanic to the game: the sanity meter from Don’t Starve.

Your vision will begin to distort, you’ll start to hear things, and the monsters that your mind is creating will begin to attack you. This mod really changes how you play the game, as you need to be aware of this vital stat and keep it high or else you’ll be in danger.
