Everyone loves to be scared - some people more than others. When you’re looking for a great horror movie to freak you out, there are a few methods that you can use. Check the cover art, read some reviews, or watch a movie that plays to your deepest fears as decided by the zodiac. What your astrological chart says about your fears is pretty spot-on, which means that you can watch a movie that will definitely scare you according to the zodiac.
Each zodiac sign has a specific fear. Figuring out what you’re most afraid of will allow you to find a movie that’s not only creepy, but will also keep you up at night with its underlying themes. Whether you watch the movie that aligns with your sign with the lights on or off doesn’t matter, because it’s made to give you a good scare.
Anyone who knows an Aries know that they hate to lose a fight. But the thing they fear more than not coming out on top in an argument is the prospect of losing their friends and ending up alone forever. While that outcome may sound hyperbolic, Ariens love an argument, which makes it all the more possible that they'll push their loved ones away.
In The Evil Dead, Ash Williams deals with the most heightened version of this fear when his friends are taken away from him one by one as they're infected with an ancient Sumerian evil. He has to chop each one of them to pieces in order to free them. By the end of the film, he's alone and haunted by the memories of the people he's lost.

Taureans love to live a lavish lifestyle. They want the best things in life, and that can lead to financial instability. Even though they tend to be good at keeping their finances secure, they worry about overspending or not getting enough hours at work to afford the things they really want. It's not that they crave structure, just that they need a structure in place so they can use it to get the things they want.
The Purge would be a nightmare for a Taurean. Not only does the 24 hours of pure anarchy negate the concept of wealth, but it's also impossible to maintain the high standard of living that a Taurus desires when each year there's a festival of debauchery and violence waiting to break out.

This unpredictable sign is known for changing its mind from moment to moment. While they can be flighty and fun, the moment they're tasked with making a decision, be it figuring out where to go to dinner or what movie to see, they panic.
Since there's nothing that a Gemini fears more than making a straightforward decision, there's no way that they can handle the choice-based terror of Saw. The characters in the film are forced to follow instructions and make quick decisions - something that Geminis just aren't ready to do. No one wants to be stuck in Jigsaw's twisted game, but a Gemini definitely wouldn't be able to cut it.

To see a Cancer happy, go to one of their game nights. When they’re home with all their friends, they can enjoy the people they love in a place where they’re comfortable. The moment they’re somewhere new, be it a hike in the wilderness or a wedding full of people they’ve never met, they find themselves engulfed in fear.
When the women of The Descent find themselves stuck in an unexplored underground cave with a group of flesh-eating humanoid creatures, they have to fight for survival. Even without the humanoid creepy crawlies that stalk the women in the cave, this is a scenario that would terrify a Cancer. They're out of their comfort zones and the only way to get home is to explore uncharted territory. Nothing about that sounds good to a Cancer.
