The zodiac holds a special place in pop culture. Over the years, personality quizzes, birth chart readings, and mercury retrograde have become more popular. It's difficult for people to choose who fits their favorite characters and villains.
Horror films are well-known for their large-than-life fan base and cult following. There's nothing quite like a slasher villain or a demonic entity to pump your adrenaline pumping. Regardless of whether you believe in the purpose of astrological signs or just want to have a good time, every iconic horror villain has a lot of personality to fit into the zodiac.
Aries - Betelgeuse, 'Beetlejuice' (1988)
Betelgeuse, otherwise known as Beetlejuice, is a flamboyant jerk who causes havoc wherever he goes. He is the ultimate mischievous trickster, bent on causing trouble after spending 600 years in the afterlife.
He is every bit the Aries archetype. They are known to be a bit of a tornado, with assertiveness bordering on aggression, and courage that borders on impulsivity. Despite their boldness, they are also extremely resilient and optimistic, just like Beetlejuice is when it comes to marrying Lydia Deetz.
Taurus - Black Phillip, 'The Witch' (2015)
Taurus is well-known for valuing all of life's pleasures, including good food, comfortable clothing, and, most importantly, living happily. Like Black Phillip's offer to Thomasin at the end of The Witch, Taurus desires a lifetime of serenity. They are also some of the hardest workers of the zodiac, and Black Phillip devotes an entire film to recruiting Thomasin.
The sign also has a deep need to feel loved and as they belong, which is good because this demonic goat loves the witches he creates.
Gemini - Pumpkinhead, 'Pumpkinhead' (1988)
Many consider Gemini to be two-faced, but they are also the sign of cleverness, impulsivity, and lack thereof, which are all traits that describe the demonic creature known as Pumpkinhead. The sign is also known for its unpredictability, especially when it comes to those who have wronged them. Pumpkinhead's other name is the Demon of Vengeance.
Pumpkinhead is the master of doing others' dirty work. A summoner exists for him. Death is performed through the demon's eyes, never suffering the consequences of murder.
Mister Babadook, 'The Babadook,' (2014)
Mister Babadook is a softie who is known for being tender and nurturing, just like the bedtime story nut, Mister Babadook. His fears grow worse as his prey becomes more frightened.
The Babadook is also the embodiment of grief, and the five stages play out in his hauntings. There is nothing more Cancer than that. No one in the film ever actually dies because of him. He'll scare you to near death, but killing is not his name.
Leo - Captain Spaulding, 'House of 1000 Corpses' (2003)
Leo is always the center of attention, whether it is to be or not. They are cheerful and know how to savor every moment in the room, much like House of 1000 Corpses' Captain Spaulding. The sadistic clown is the leading man of the deranged Firefly family, standing out as a caricature of sweet, childhood jokers.
Leos is well-known for being incredibly self-assured, and Captain Spaulding believes himself to be a brave murderer, taking great pride in his long criminal past.
Virgo - Sam, 'Trick 'r Treat' (2007)
Because of its spooky Halloween lore and a particular trick-or-treater with a burlap sack on his head, Trick 'r Treat remains one of the best Halloween horror films to see on Halloween night. Sam, like your typical Virgo, is a bit controlling and very organized; he follows the "rules" of Halloween.
The Virgo is not only the person who follows these instructions, but also the one who watches over everyone in the film. He is also a practical and obsessed with perfection. He likes to compartmentalize and ensure everything goes as planned.
Silent Hill Nurse, 'Silent Hill' (2006)
Silent Hill's nurses aren't great at writing, which isn't surprising given that their entire heads are covered with horrific wounds and bandsages. But neither are they Libras, as they are well-known for their poor communication skills and for refusing to speak up when they should.
Libras are the zodiac's balancing act, represented by the scales, and are considered non-confrontational. In the film, the nurses chase after anything that isn't in their line of sight, leaving their foes to make their own terrible choices. They also represent fear, which Libra struggles with due to their extraordinary indecisiveness.
'Thir13en Ghosts': Scorpio - The Angry Princess (2001)
When wronged, Scorpio will curse your mother, your pet, and your entire bloodline, and they'll still feel as though the punishment wasn't enough. The Angry Princess in Thir13en Ghosts remains bound to earth because of her hatred of people and the revenge she seeks on those who wronged her in life.
The Angry Princess was unable to recognize her beauty in life, and her self-loathing led to a series of plastic surgery procedures. Scorpio's eternal defiance toward her exes and the world is at their highest level.
Tiffany Valentine, 'Bride of Chucky,' Sagittarius (1998)
Sagittarius is the zodiac's fun, adventurous, and optimistic sign. They are open to the unknown, and with big ideas larger than life, they have no trouble getting what they want. Like Tiffany in Bride of Chucky, Sagittarius lives life on the wilder side and is a proponent of the profane.
Tiffany has a long-standing devotion to Chucky, which is also reflected in the sign. Just be careful though, as Sagittarius, she has a short fuse and a flamboyant temper.
Capricorn - Bughuul, 'Sinister' (2012)
Capricorns are described as hardworking, but very cold. They rarely express their feelings, as could be seen in Bughuul, the Pagan deity who feeds on children in Sinister. With a terrifyingly gnarled face, nobody is able to comprehend what Bughuul is experiencing.
He appears when asked for a job and then departs when he's done. Like Capricorn, he is also highly manipulative and uses it to his advantage while controlling the lives of children and killing their families.
Aquarius - Samara Morgan, 'The Ring' (2002)
Samara Morgan is one of the most sympathetic villains in horror. She was born as the human incarnation of a demon spirit, and her mother wanted to drown her. Aquarius is very sensitive to their emotions, and perceives things differently than the other zodiac signs, much like Samara was different when she was born.
Aquarius is well-known as the zodiac's visionary and is interested in making the world a better place. While Samara did a lot of killing under the guise of a demonic entity, the little human girl only desired to be loved by her mother.
Pisces - Jigsaw, 'Saw' (2004)
Pisces is a sensitive and highly intuitive sign of the zodiac. They are well-known for being kind and gracious, which Jigsaw handles in some ways. Thhowhis arguments are more on the sadistic side, but he is amazing like Aquarius.
John Kramer (AKA Jigsaw) discovers a newfound appreciation for life and vows to dedicate the rest of his life to making others aware of theirs. However, deep down, his desires are quite substantial. He just wants to do a little good in the world.
