Top 5 horror maps to try during Halloween in Minecraft (2022)
5) Five Nights at Freddy's
This is a fully functional Five Nights at Freddy's remake of the sandbox game. Using the majority of the new 1.8 command features, as well as a combination of animated Armor Stands, the map creator has recaptured the terrifying experience of playing Five Nights at Freddy's in the vanilla version.

The Backrooms map has endless randomized level generation and a total of 11 different levels. New items and entities are featured on this map like flashlights, food, almond water, and some mysterious creatures that players might encounter.
Players will have to seek items by breaking wooden crates or searching drawers, venture further into the backrooms and avoid danger. As the levels increase, the map will become tougher.
Beware is a psychological horror map for the game. As this type suggests - "psychological horror" - the map has a strong and horrofic influence on our minds. This cements the fact that this map is not for the faint-hearted.

This remastered version adds extra polish and several new features while staying true to the original experience of the map.
Redstone has been ripped out and done from scratch to make use of the new command blocks added in 1.9. This remastered version of the classic horror map will bring a lot of scary yet fond memories to many veteran players.

Villagers are some of the most peaceful and harmless mobs in the entire game. However, this custom map takes those very villagers and turns them into haunting demonic figures that will hunt players down. The villages have been completely overhauled along with new structures to explore.
Both the the villagers and illagers have been retextured to look extremely creepy. The map also has a brilliant storyline, allowing players to immerse themselves.
