Which Horror Movie Character Are You Based On Your Zodiac Sign?

As Randy Meeks says in Scream: "There's a formula to it - a very simple formula" when it comes to horror movies. Some have a jump scare or two, while others feature a spirit hell-bent on revenge. If you're a spooky movie lover, chances are you've wondered which horror movie character you most resemble. 

Similar to the standard terrifying tropes, the stars have also set out a map of whom you'd be in a horror movie. Which scary movie character are you based on, according to your zodiac sign? Are you a survivor like Erin in You're Next? Or are you a stubborn know-it-all like David in Shaun of the Dead? See how your chart matches up to your ultimate horror movie identity. 

  • Aries (March 21 - April 19): Julie In 'I Know What You Did Last Summer'

    When it comes to horror films featuring deranged killers, there is always one person who decides to walk to the center of an open space and yell, "I'm right here! Come and get me!" This person is Aries.

    Rams have no patience for cat-and-mouse nonsense and love to announce when they're ready to throw down with the psycho, one-on-one. Impulsive to a fault, this Fire sign often aggressively deals with fear - for instance, calling out a psycho killer who kills off their friends one at a time. 

    It's not the wisest decision, but there aren't many Aries known for making calm, logical choices. If they are the film's hero - like Julie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) - they should say goodbye to Helen (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Barry (Ryan Phillippe), because they will feel the called-out killer's wrath.

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): David In 'Shaun Of The Dead'

    Tauruses know everything - or at least they like to think they do. When faced with crazed zombies, David (Dylan Moran) is delighted to create a group survival plan - one not involving the Winchester Pub, which Shaun (Simon Pegg) loves so much. When the group ignores it, however, David stomps off and pouts like a typical stubborn Bull - and he does so while uncomfortably close to a window roiling with zombies.

    Uncompromising and unafraid of going solo, the Bull will do anything to seek out stability and security, even if it leads to an untimely death during a late apology attempt.

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Paul In 'Urban Legend'

    Geminis are known as the Twin sign for a reason. This Air sign has a bit of a dual personality, and in horror movies, they're the journalism major obsessed with the urban legends materializing on their college campus. Like Paul (Jared Leto),  Gemini has the uncanny ability to appear suspicious as hell. The killer has a habit of leaving a certain flower on their victims? Gemini can respect this and see how it might make sense to the psycho. Another person died? How exciting for the Gemini who hates routine and boredom!

    Despite all the subjective evidence, Paul is not the killer. Even if he held a grudge against someone, he lacks the discipline to off someone in a discreet, serial-killer fashion. After all, how will he start his career as a reporter if he keeps everything private?

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Norman Bates In 'Psycho'

    If there is one thing a Cancer cannot stand, it's anyone talking smack about their mother. Add some insecurity, moodiness, and emotional turmoil, and here comes your mom-obsessed Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins). This Water sign doesn't have to fixate on a wrongly accused mother, either - anyone can become the object of this neurotic killer's affections, though familial ties are more likely than romantic ones. Blood is thicker than water, after all - especially when it's circling a shower drain in your motel room.

    This killer will end anyone who wrongs their beloved, and they will go to extreme lengths to do so.
