Just remember which kind of horror it's supposed to inspire.
"I grab the sword!"
"Mmkay, you're dead."
"What!?"
"You just grabbed the sword of the god you were just personally responsible for banishing from the world for the next ten thousand years. You just got zapped by around a billion volts of Angry Divine Power. You're dead."

Horror is a cereberal reaction, it is rooted in helplessness and powerlessness to alter a hazardous situation. This compares to terror which is the gut reation, fight or flight. You can run away from T-rex, or if you have a big enough gun, you can bring him down for Ultra-Game Hunter magazine. You cant run away from Nyarlathotep, the crawling chaos. You cant kill Chthulu with a gun no matter how good your aim is.

Essentially, horror is distilled terror.
P(A|B) = P(B|A)*P(A)/P(B)
