Of course the Minecraft community isn’t something that will let this Holiday come to pass quietly. As a result, a lot Halloween themed horror maps and resource pack have been popping out, including those with terrifying music packs.

Is a Vanilla horror/ thriller map with a scary winter theme. In this map, you’ll play as a young girl who decided to stay home alone during the winter holiday.
When it’s late a night, you hear some glass shattering, and discovered that the electricity is out. Now all you need to do is try to turn the lights back on.
Lights Out is a nice thriller map that lingers around the fear of being left all alone in the dark.
Is a horror map filled with scares, creepyness, and shocking/ gruesome imagery created by username REMO.
Probably one of the scariest maps ever made in the history of Minecraft, The Orphanage features a scary ambiance, realistic texture, an intriguing story and lots of jump scares.
