These Zodiac Signs Are Most Likely To Survive In A Horror Movie

Boo! Don’t freak out! Today, we’re talking about the zodiac signs most likely to survive in a horror movie. In Signs Of The Times, Her Campus gets all of the dirty details about the signs directly from astrologers. Today, Taryn Leigh Bond, a Tropical Astrologer who offers readings and teaches people how to read birth charts, shares which three signs are most likely to make it out of a horror movie alive.

Whether we realize it or not, horror films have always been a permanent fixture in pop culture. And no matter if you’re the biggest horror fiend on the planet (*cough* me *cough*) or if you’re the type to hide under a blanket for the entirety of the movie, there’s one character, one troupe, that we’re all familiar with: the survivor.

While many of us aren’t cut out for the horror-movie-survivor lifestyle, there are some people who have just what it takes to end the movie alive. Think you’ve got what it takes? Read on to see which three zodiac signs are most likely to survive in a horror movie.


Gotta find a sign intelligent enough to outsmart a serial killer? Look no further than the calculated and clever Capricorn.

“Ruled by Father Time (Saturn) himself, Capricorns are known to play the long game. Patience, strategy, planning, safety, and caution are their keywords,” Bond tells Her Campus. “Saturn is the planet of ‘building structures of lasting value.’ While Capricorn will never be the flashiest character, they’re the one to quietly watch and craft a genius escape plan at the last possible moment, just when you thought all hope was lost.”

I’ll tell you what: the next time I’m trapped in a haunted house and need an escape plan, I’m calling the Caps first!


What can’t y’all do? The perfect balance between a free spirit and a realist, the Saturn-ruled Aquarians have the ability to think differently and act quickly.

Bond says, “Aquarius is the sign of genius. They’re the masters of finding a solution that is not obvious, something bold and perhaps risky that no one has tried before (or even thought of). As the last air sign of the zodiac, Aquarius has a practical yet fearless approach. Not impulsive, but definitely crafty and bold.”

Whether they’re plotting an escape or confronting a villain, an Aquarius will confidently make it out alive. And that’s a fact!


Last but not least, the cunning, Pluto-ruled Scorpio was born to survive a horror flick. Bond tells Her Campus, “Scorpio is the sign associated with death, destruction, and loss. Scorpio is also associated with regeneration and renewal. If there’s anyone who’s going to make it against all odds, it’s persevering Scorpio.”

Hey, Scorpio! Please don’t leave me when you escape, I wanna be in the sequel!
