Halloween is almost here, which means it is the perfect time to try out some Minecraft horror mods. While some part of the base game is a bit creepy (such as the Warden and the End dimension), no particular aspect of Minecraft can be regarded as frightening.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 6 best Minecraft horror mods to try out on Halloween.

1. Last Days of Humanity

Last Days of Humanity is a post-apocalyptic modpack that turns Minecraft into a world of zombies. Players need to survive 100 days in hell.

It is pretty much a zombie survival sim, with the players being able to learn to make guns, turrets, vehicles, complex machinery and robot soldiers. Recruit survivors to your survival base, and obtain ores that are only available in the wasteland deserts in order to overcome the parasite raid on the 100th midnight.

The zombies in this modpack are very well designed. They are progressively faster and have the ability to pillar, destroy blocks, call for allies and infect survivors. All out invasions happen every 10 days and parasitic organisms spawn on the 50th day, gradually increasing as days go on. There are also mutated creatures that reside in specific biomes and enemy survivors that will gun you down on sight.

2. Mineshafts & Monsters

4. Rebirth of the Night

Inspired by Terraria, 7 Days to Die, and more, Rebirth of the Night is a Minecraft 1.12.2 modpack with its own progression system, lore, mechanics, and art. It's built with the idea of remembering the central themes of what made Minecraft enjoyable and expanding them in every way, increasing the overall risk and reward as you progress.

The design philosophy of Rebirth of the Night modpack is to create an experience where adventure, conquest, progression and survival are all intertwined. This pack is built upon the goal of keeping Minecraft close to the original concept of survival, while also completely re-imagining other gameplay mechanics. A recurring theme in this pack is that your actions have consequences: you are playing in a living, breathing world that will react to your actions. Mobs will mine and build to get to you, combat is greatly expanded upon, danger and dread are amplified, seasons change, and every world-changing event you cause has repercussions... Your skills in all aspects of gameplay will be tested, but in a way that supports many different play styles.

Rebirth of the Night completely overhauls Minecraft and many mods both popular and obscure through the use of mods such as CraftTweaker and its addons, Set Bonus, Gamestages, InControl, and more. This pack is harder than vanilla, but in a way that scales with your progression rather than making things tedious and discouraging from the moment you start a new world. This means that all aspects of gameplay have increased difficulty, including crafting, mining, exploring, farming, and of course, survival. All of the mods we use interact with each other in a way that is unique to this pack.

5. Parasites

This mod adds hostile parasite-themed mobs to your Minecraft game for you to fight, they can be dangerous, scary and some of them can learn from their fights to evolve. The parasites have no biome-specific spawn, so you can find them anywhere. They also don't burn in daylight and they can attack other hostile mobs (optional).


When a parasite is killed, there is a chance for it to call reinforcements, this means that a Beckon will spawn nearby and will help in the fight. The Beckon has different stages and that will tell how many and which parasites it will spawn. You can change the Beckon mob spawning in the configuration file

The beckons also have the ability to infest nearby blocks and infested blocks can damage all mobs other than the parasite faction. Overall, if you have watched "The Thing" movie and want to replicate it in Minecraft, this particular modpack is your best bet.

6. The Twilight Forest

The Twilight Forest is a dimension exploration mod that's mostly geared toward adventure. You will be able to explore fully fledged dungeons, fight diverse boss battles with elaborate mechanics... and more. Meet strange creatures, trade and craft unique items to assist in your travel.
