This is my idea. Demons and ghosts. A ghost is a spirit of a human being or an animal which is either trying to finish unfinished business, or is lost and doesn't know it is dead, or to protect a particular place or item. A demon is a spirit from Satan himself that was never alive that only exists to cause pain and suffering for it's own enjoyment. Ghosts would be good to haunt particular structures like strongholds and mineshafts. Some things the ghost would do to attack is cast itself into many ghosts to make it look like it is more than one ghost. Another would be to make you think it is a pig or a cow or something like that so you go up to it, and it turns back into a ghost and attacks. A demon would be a similar looking thing only be more mischievous. It would be more complex than a ghost. You know how villagers will be able to attach themselves to houses? These suckers would do the same. They attach to a house that the mischief begins. When there are no monsters nearby, trying to sleep might make it say monsters are nearby, creeper sounds behind you when there is no creeper, Fire blocks appear on your house that don't do anything, sometimes you wake up in the middle of the night, yeah. Stuff like that. You can kill ghosts with a certain enchantment on your sword, or you could perform an exorcism. The exorcism doesn't require diamonds or anything expensive, and it kills any ghosts or demons within a two chunk radius. For demons, it is the only method of killing them. Ghosts should be way more common than demons. Demons should be so rare that you can make something that can spawn them called the cursed bottle. You throw it and it attaches itself to the nearest house. Demons can also rearrange items inside chests. I just feel this would add more meaning to your boring minecraft life.
This is just to much... it sounds like you want a fantasy game to be more realistic, however I do like the ghosts idea but maybe it could just be a hostile mob that spawns in strongholds and leave it at that.

Yea, I know. I just bought a house that has a demon attached to it. I'm always putting out fires that aren't there, taking the cat food out of the freezer, taking the ice cream out of the toilet, and waking up at night.
But seriously, this is a horrible idea. (I play Minecraft to escape real-life.)
I feel my minecraft life is too boring. This nuisance would add some life to it. Also, the demon would be an incredibly rare spawn. You would be lucky (or unlucky) to get one every two weeks real life time. The thing is, it would spawn in a chunk, and if there is no house there, it despawns. If you built your house on two chunks, it would only be able to haunt half of your house. Maybe at night you can physically see the demon and kill it there. It cannot deal damage, but it makes up for it by doing other stuff. Maybe it drops a rare item that is not dropped by anything else. Have anyone seen DrZharksMoMobs mod? I got the idea from that. I will edit this post later and add a screenshot.
