Custom maps in Minecraft are a great way to enjoy everything the game has to offer. These maps allow players to enter a world and go on an adventure designed by someone else. There are quire a few horror-themed maps on the internet, some are original, and some are inspired by others.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the top 5 horror maps to try this Halloween in Minecraft 2022.

1. POISON 2.0

Villagers are the most useful friendly mob in the game. They give players a lot of benefits, including loot and trades. This custom map completely reverses that by turning villagers into demons that hunt players down. All villages have also been overhauled completely, with new structures to explore.


The map has a great storyline allowing great immersion - both the villagers and illagers get new textures that look extremely creepy.

2. Herobrine's Mansion

Herobrine's Mansion is a very old map - it was created and published back in November 2012 by Hypixel. They have collaborated with Xiantis recently to port the classic Adventure map to the 1.10 version of the game. The remaster polishes it up a fair bit, adding new features while staying true to the original version. The redstone system has been replaced with the new command blocks added in 1.9.

3. Beware

Beware is a "psychological horror" themed map, which is a bit different from the usual horror. It is a fascinating story where players get stuck in a village and has to follow clues from a phone conversation with their wife, which eventually leads them down a dark and dangerous path.
