Horror movies have been around since the dawn of cinema, capturing the attention of many viewers. Some dislike horror movies while others love them more than any other genre because of their ability to give us adrenaline.
But what horror movies are truly known for are the villains. More often than not, well-crafted horror movie villains can be as unforgettable as characters from other genres. Here are some major horror movie villains and the zodiac sign with which they match.
12. Aries: The Thing (The Thing)
Aries signs are independent, brave, assertive, and hate to be restricted. They are natural leaders, but they can also be selfish and impulsive which doesn’t exactly benefit their image.
The Thing from the film of the same name could be an Aries. Though it is a monster, it is still a living organism, which is almost as smart as the humans in the film. It isn’t afraid of anything and keeps attacking, almost in an assertive manner like a real Aries would.
11. Taurus: Jason Vorhees (Friday The 13th)
Taurus signs have good taste and love pleasing others. They are determined, dependable, and down-to-earth as well as loyal, sensual, and stubborn to an extent.
Jason Vorhees from the Friday the 13th franchise is an example of this zodiac sign. He listens to his mother, but he then grows into a more independent character, lending to his inherent stubbornness.
10. Gemini: Jack Torrance (The Shining)
Gemini are considered two-faced and mischievous, but they are also dynamic, ambitious, and intelligent. They like playing games and often have many talents, but they can also be selfish.
Jack Torrance from the cult horror film The Shining is definitely a Gemini. In fact, one of the film’s themes seems to be duality (e.g. the twins, the word “murder” aka “redrum”, the symmetric shots) which is a characteristic of this sign and is reflected in Jack himself.
9. Cancer: Leatherface (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre)
Cancers can often be seen as sensitive, self-absorbed, and emotional. However, they are also friend-oriented, practical, and nurturing. They hate to argue, forgive fast, and never forget anything.
Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a Cancer. This was the film that introduced the prototypical horror film villain who doesn’t have a personality but has the strength and determination that is quite horrifying. Still, Leatherface had the mind of a child, and children can be quite sensitive.
8. Leo: Ghostface (Scream)
Leos are considered faithful, creative, inspiring, generous, and confident. These popular individuals can still be quite dominating and prideful.
Ghostface from the Scream franchise is known for being a villain who was unmasked as being a different character every time. However, they were all motivated to some extent by their need for popularity. Besides, all these characters were very creative when committing their murders.
7. Virgo: Samara Morgan (The Ring)
Virgos are clever, kind, creative, reliable, and often successful. They are perfectionists who can lead others on and like to please those around them.
Samara Morgan from The Ring is probably a Virgo. She turned into such a monster because of the lack of love though there was definitely something sinister in her story before that too. In addition to that, she was very successful with her mission to kill. Even when people tried to evade death, she was able to kill someone in the end.
6. Libra: Hannibal Lecter (The Silence of the Lambs)
Libras are irresistible yet fearful, adventurous yet indecisive. They often have complicated love lives despite their infinite friendliness and fairness.
Hannibal Lecter from The Silence of the Lambs seems to be a Libra. He gets control over nearly any situation he gets in because of his personality and the kind of person he is, which is absolutely irresistible in spite of his inherent horrifying nature.
5. Scorpio: Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street)
Scorpios are self-reliant and powerful individuals. They are wise, passionate, and unpredictable. They can also be bitter, dominant, and very secretive.
Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise is a Scorpio. He pursues his victims in their sleep when they are the most vulnerable which is why he is so powerful every time he strikes again. His ability to appear in dreams also gives him an air of unpredictability.
4. Sagittarius: Pennywise (IT)
Sagittarius signs are open-minded, loving, straightforward, and brave. These achievers, on the other hand, can also be hot-headed, cold, and insensitive.
Pennywise from It and its sequel is a Sagittarius. He isn’t just a clown but rather an alien monster who can turn into the thing his victims are most afraid of which makes him even more terrifying. Pennywise is also known for being friendly to kids to lure them in though he is as cold as a monster like him could be.
3. Capricorn: Alien (Alien)
Capricorns are often called egotistical, stubborn, and ambitious. They don’t feel content until they reach the top. They are also hardworking, straightforward, loyal, and organized.
The alien from the Alien franchise could be considered a Capricorn. This monster deliberately tries to kill humans while the facehuggers want to impregnate them. They really work hard, don’t they?
2. Aquarius: Michael Meyers (Halloween)
Aquarius people often set trends for everyone else to follow. They are creative and innovative, but also distant and eccentric. They are often admired and impersonal too.
Michael Myers from Halloween is another horror film character who set the precedent and inspired the release of more slasher films. Michael was a strange kid who then grew into an equally strange and murderous man.
1. Pisces: Norman Bates (Psycho)
Pisces is the sign known for its free will. These people are alluring, sensual, sympathetic, and emotional. But they are often melancholic, sensitive, and can’t function alone.
Norman Bates from Psycho undoubtedly belongs to the Pisces sign. He initially listens to his mother who tells him to kill people, but he is still an iconic fictional murderer who finds his own free will to kill afterward.
