Trepidation Kodi addon is for those who love the adrenalin gush that horror movies bring. This add-on has a solid collection of horror content including the old movies and the new ones. I really like the way they have categorized the content allowing you to know exactly where to look for what you want to watch. Some of their top categories include Greatest Horror Films of All Time.
Horror movies are also available through the other popular video addons. But, for a fan of the horror genre, a dedicated Kodi addon only makes sense. So, if you have been looking for the Kodi horror addon, I believe Trepidation could be a great pick. In this article, we learn how to install Trepidation addon on Kodi 17.6 Krypton. It can also be installed on Kodi 16 Jarvis, however, I would recommend updating Kodi to the latest version if you are still on Jarvis. Keep reading!
UPDATE: This addon is not working now. Please check my list of working Kodi Addons here.

The first thing you want to do is allow the Unknown Sources so that you may install third-party addons like Trepidation for Kodi. It requires a quick tweak to the security settings. But, do not be alarmed as it will not make your device vulnerable. Trepidation for Kodi is a trusted addon used by thousands. Here is what we will change:

Before we get started, let me tell you that the following installation method will work across all Kodi supported devices because Kodi interface is the same on all. Whether you are using Kodi on FireStick, Android TV, Windows, or smartphones, the steps will remain applicable.
I have broken down the installation process into three steps:

- STEP 3: Install Trepidation addon on Kodi from Tantrum TV repository
Attention, Kodi Users!
Kodi Addons and builds offer unlimited streaming content, but could also get you into legal trouble if caught streaming free movies, TV shows, or sports. Currently, your IP is visible to everyone. Kodi users are strongly advised to always connect a VPN while streaming online. A good Kodi VPN hides your identity, bypasses government surveillance, geo-blocked content, and ISP throttling (which also helps in buffer-free streaming).
I personally use ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon FireStick. You get 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you are not satisfied, you can always ask for a refund.
STEP 1: Add the Source to Kodi
In this part, we need to add the source URL to Kodi so that we may install the desired repository in the next part. Follow the steps below:
#1. Click the ‘Settings’ menu by clicking the cog/gear icon on the top-left of the Kodi home screen
#2. Now click the ‘File Manager’ icon on the window that opens next
#3. You will now see a list. Click ‘Add source’ on this list. You may have to scroll down a bit if you have already added some sources.
#4. A sub-window will pop up with the title ‘Add file source’. Click ‘<None>’ in this window (see image below)
#5. Now enter the URL http://repo.tantrumtv.com/download and click the OK button
Note: Enter the source URL exactly as I have shared. Typos will result in installation issues and hence many hassles.
#6. Now enter the name of the source in the ‘Enter a name for this media source’ field. There is no restriction on what name you can choose. But, it is advisable to give it the name you can identify with later. We will need it.
In this guide, we add the source name as ‘TantrumTV’
Once that’s done, click ‘OK’
You have successfully added the source. Let’s move to the next part.
STEP 2: Install the Tantrum TV Repository
We will now install the Tantrum TV repository from the source we just added. Later, we will install Trepidation addon for Kodi through this repo.
#1. Now go back to the Kodi home screen and click ‘Add-ons’ on the left sidebar or panel
#2. On the subsequent screen, click the ‘Package Installer’ icon. This icon is on the top-left corner of the screen. It resembles an open box image. It may also look like the Dropbox icon.
#3. Click the ‘Install form zip file’ option
#4. Now you will see another pop-up. Click ‘TantrumTV’ (or the name that you entered earlier while adding the source) on this window.
#5. On the next window click the zip file named ‘repository.tantrumtv-1.2.2.zip‘
Please keep in mind that the file name may change/update if an updated version of the repository is released. The numbers 1.2.2 in the zip file represent the current version.
#6. Now, wait for the ‘Tantrum.TV Repository Add-on installed’ notification. It will appear on the top right (image below)
Well, you have successfully added the Tantrum TV repository. We will now learn to install Trepidation video addon for Kodi using this repo.
STEP 3: Install Trepidation Kodi Addon
#1. Click ‘Install from repository’ option (just above ‘Install from zip file)
#2. Now click the Tantrum.TV Repository from the list of the installed repositories on your Kodi
#3. Click ‘Video add-ons’ option
#4. Scroll down and click ‘Trepidation’
#5. Click ‘Install’. This button is on the bottom right of the window
This will start installing the Trepidation addon on Kodi. It may take 2-3 minutes for the process to complete. You will see the download progress on the screen next to ‘Trepidation’ item on the list.
Once the installation is complete, ‘Trepidation Add-on installed’ notification will appear on the top-right of the Kodi screen.
This simply means that Trepidation Kodi addon has been installed.
Before you start streaming with Kodi Addons or Builds, I would like to warn you that everything you stream on Kodi is visible to your ISP and Government. This means, streaming copyrighted content (free movies, TV shows, live TV, and Sports) might get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, there is a foolproof way to keep all your streaming activities hidden from your ISP and the Government. All you need is a good VPN for Kodi. A VPN will mask your original IP which is and will help you bypass Online Surveillance, ISP throttling, and content geo-restrictions.
I personally use and recommend ExpressVPN, which is the fastest and most secure VPN. It is compatible with all kinds of streaming apps and devices.
NOTE: We do not encourage the violation of copyright laws. But, what if you end up streaming content from an illegitimate source unintentionally? It is not always easy to tell the difference between a legit and illegal source.
So, before you start streaming on Kodi, here's how to get VPN protection in 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Get the ExpressVPN subscription HERE. It comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. Meaning, you can use it free for the first 30-days and if you are not satisfied with the performance (which is highly unlikely), you can ask for a full refund.
Step 2: Click HERE to download and install the ExpressVPN app on your streaming device. If you are using a FireStick, I have given the exact steps starting with Step 4 below.
Step 3: Click the Power icon to connect to a VPN server. That's all. Your connection is now secure with the fastest and best VPN for Kodi.
The following are the steps to install Kodi VPN on your Fire TV devices. If you have other streaming devices, follow Step 1-3 above.
Step 4: Subscribe to ExpressVPN HERE (if not subscribed already).
Step 5: Go to Fire TV Stick home screen. Click Find followed by Search option (see image below).
Step 6: Type Expressvpn in the search bar and select when it shows up.
Step 7: Click Download.
