List RulesVote up the movies that really speak to every Scorpio.

When asking which kinds of movies Scorpios will like, the answer relates to the natural qualities that tend to characterize those born under the sign. Scorpios are - first and foremost - nothing if not incredibly passionate. Movies that manage to work in a little steaminess tend to be right up their alley. They are also one of the zodiac's most gifted observers, so great movies for Scorpios may also include those that delve into the hidden or deeper nature of the human mind. 

Though they tend to be intensely loyal to and protective of those they love, this is one sign that you don't want to piss off, as they can be a bit intense when betrayed. For this reason, some of the best films for Scorpios may also include plots that deal with betrayal and subsequent revenge, such as Cruel Intentions and Double Jeopardy. Often drawn to magic, movies that deal with the occult or the mysterious - such as Mulholland Drive - are also great choices when it comes to movies for Scorpios. 

Check out this collection of films and vote up the ones that speak to you as a Scorpio or to the favorite Scorpio in your life.
