With Halloween creeping up on us, what better way to embrace the fear than turning your next game of Minecraft into a living nightmare? Minecraft on its own can be relatively thrilling at times with its various angry mobs of spiders, zombies, and skeletons – though the fear factor tends to wear off after a while, as it becomes second nature to kill off those pesky foes.
So, why not up the game? Bring the horror straight into your world however you like with an endless choice of creepy mods. If you can think of it, there’s probably a mod for it – from gruesome fleshy themes to classic horror movie monsters, there’s something for all horror fans to enjoy.
Getting your hands on mods has never been more simple, with a plethora of apps and websites to download from. For Minecraft mods, in particular, Overwolf’s Curseforge app holds a great amount of variety. Simply head to the Curseforge website and install the app where you’ll be able to download and manage as many mods as you like. Without further ado, here are our top ten recommended spooky Minecraft mods.
Horror Movie Monsters

Walk among unnatural spirits and dark magic in the Minecraft mod, AbyssalCraft. Heavily inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, this mod will have you encountering greater evil than you can imagine, in four gloomy dimensions known as The Abyss.

Take part in an enhanced game of manhunt with the mod, Sculkhunt. In a group of four to eight players, you must attempt to outrun the Sculk trackers. One out of five players will be chosen to become a Sculk tracker while the rest start the game as survivors.
