Aries – Cloverfield (2008)
This action-packed found footage feature directed by Matt Reeves and produced by J.J. Abrams follows a group of Manhattanites who find themselves at ground zero during an alien invasion.
For the energetic and athletic Fire Sign Aries, Cloverfield is the perfect creature feature. The aliens are huge, the screams feel real, and there is never a dull moment in the narrative.
11Taurus – The Girl With All The Gifts (2016)
A unique take on the post-apocalyptic zombie trope, The Girl With All the Gifts takes place in a world destroyed by a fungus that turns everyone exposed to it into flesh-eating mutants. Melanie, the main character, is a second-generation mutant whose ability to reason and think compels scientists to study her in hopes of finding a cure.
Earthy Tauruses, symbolized by the bull, will enjoy this British film’s depictions of the natural world. Tauruses will also enjoy Melanie’s stubborn self-preservation and perseverance.
10Gemini – Event Horizon (1997)
Intellectual and curious Geminis will be engaged by the terrifying mental and emotional puzzles characters contend with in Event Horizon. Sam Neill plays the inventor of the title spaceship, which contains an experimental engine that causes a rift in the space-time continuum designed to shorten the length of travel to different galaxies.
While the engine does this, it also opens up a portal to a dark, alternate universe full of malevolent forces, forces that cause the ship’s crew to go insane. Airy Geminis love stunning visual imagery and challenging plot developments, making Event Horizon the movie for them.
9Cancer – Under The Shadow (2016)
Cancers are emotional homebodies, and this Iranian horror movie focuses on a mother and daughter who are targeted by a supernatural creature known as a djinn in Persian mythology. The film’s action takes place in the family’s small Tehran apartment during the Iran-Iraq War.
As water signs, the sensitive and sympathetic Cancer will be moved by the mother character’s struggle to protect her young daughter from both the evil forces within and the political turmoil without.
8Leo – Creep (2014)
Theatrical and self-centered Leos will laugh heartily while watching this parody of found-footage horror movies starring Mark Duplass as a serial killer who targets victims by posting ads on Craigslist. When a videographer responds to the man, Josef’s, ad, he has no idea what’s in store for him.
Leos are fire signs, driven by passion and hands-on experiences. They will love the fast-paced narrative style of Creep, and they will be equally enamored by Duplass’s absorbing performance.
7Virgo – Hush (2016)
As if the title isn’t enough to sway them, quiet and reserved Virgos will relate to this home invasion thriller about a deaf and mute woman assailed by a masked intruder. Maddie Young is an aspiring author who seems like easy prey to the unknown killer, but she puts up quite a fight.
Virgos are practical earth signs, and they will relate to Maddie’s realistic and grueling approach to fighting for her life.
6Libra – Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
Peaceful, social, and airy Libras desire love and companionship above all else, traits shared by Mia Farrow’s character Rosemary Woodhouse in the psychological masterpiece Rosemary’s Baby. Rosemary’s desire to have a family is what makes her vulnerable to the Castavets’, the Satanists next door who, with the help of her husband Guy, use Rosemary’s womb to birth the Anti-Christ.
Libras will also be moved by the lavish interiors and costumes brought to life in the film, which takes place in a New York City gothic apartment building.
5Scorpio – The Blackcoat’s Daughter (2015)
Moody and intense, Scorpios are by far the scariest in the Zodiac. Those who fall under this brooding and fervent water sign will love the macabre The Blackcoat’s Daughter, which tells the story of a teenage girl who may or may not be possessed by Satan himself. While slow-moving, the film’s events unfold with excessive gore.
Scorpios are attuned to the mysterious emotional underpinnings present in the movie, starring Kiernan Shipka and Emma Roberts.
4Sagittarius – Murder Party (2007)
Fiery and friendly Sagittariuses love going to parties, so it makes sense they will love Murder Party, a comedic horror film about a group of art students who take performance art to the next level, using a Halloween costume party as a setup for staging a murder.
Mutable fire signs, Sagittariuses engage in pursuits that will make them laugh and think. That being said, Murder Party is the perfect feature for them.
3Capricorn – In The Tall Grass (2019)
The characters who find themselves trapped in a supernatural field of tall grass controlled by a giant, prophetic rock are driven crazy by the impossibility of never finding a way out. Responsible and pragmatic Capricorns will be dedicated themselves to figuring out the mystery at the heart of the movie, one that lacks easy answers.
In The Tall Grass is a Netflix-produced film starring a very creepy Patrick Wilson, a morally corrupt and crafty character influenced by whatever power exists within the rock. Earthy Capricorns will enjoy crawling through the dirt with the other characters trying to escape him.
2Aquarius – XX
Progressive and intellectual Aquariuses will love this feminist anthology horror series that contains four separate tales all directed by women. From birthday parties gone terribly wrong to reproducing with Satan, the plot of each short subverts the roles women normally play in horror movies.
An air sign, Aquarius is independent and free-thinking, and those under this sign will find the social messages buried in each short quite compelling.
1Pisces – Sweetheart (2019)
Watery and sentimental Pisces will appreciate this survival story about a young woman who washes up on a remote island after surviving some sort of disaster. As the bodies of her friends come ashore after her, Jenn must contend with both the loss of people she cares about and the presence of a people-eating sea monster that walks on two legs.
Pisces will relate to Jenn’s intuitive and wise approach to protecting herself from the monster, and they will root for her as she constructs creative strategies to end the beast’s life before it has her for dinner.
