five nights at freddy's one of the top most terrifying Minecraft maps

Five Nights at Freddy is undisputed and one of the best horror games to ever be made. The game that had made many of us scream and get phobia with stuffed toys, and have our heartbeat touch the roof. Well, the notoriously scary game was added into Minecraft by Reather, a fan of both Minecraft and FNAF and to no surprise, this map instantly became a hit. If you are into horror maps then you should definitely give this map a try. It is a fully functioning FNAF map while the creator says the map might face severe lags but that depends on your processing system and something that is not in his control.

This is amongst the most downloaded horror maps in Minecraft that’s we took this into the list of most terrifying Minecraft maps.

Note that at the very beginning when you load the map you might face something that you would expect is a crash or that Minecraft froze but that is not the case and it is just the resource pack that is trying to play the first sound
