Everyone knows you’re the bravest and boldest sign of the zodiac. While others are frightened or lost in panic, it is you who hatch a heroic plan to save yourself and everyone else. Your cunning and quick wit is what keeps you alive for most of the film, and you take down a henchman or two along the way. Unfortunately, you meet your end while fending off the villain in a daring confrontation that ends in your selfless sacrifice for the good of the group. Although you did not make it out alive, your friends will always remember your bravery in the face of certain fate.
Let’s face it, Taurus, you probably didn’t want to go on a camping trip that got you into this mess in the first place. But your best friend convinced you to spend a weekend in the spooky woods, and now you find yourself being chased by a psychopathic killer. The good news is that your nerves of steel and practical approach problem solving skills will keep you alive through most of this terrifying ordeal. However, your loyalty is what is ultimately your downfall. You will die after returning to find an injured friend and falling into the trap the killer set for you.
Curious and critical, you are the first of the group to notice that something is wrong. And like the outspoken extrovert of the zodiac, you are also the first to express your discomfort with everyone, even if they do not listen at first. Your ability to see a situation from all possible angles is what tells you there’s a killer in the middle, but it’s not enough to keep you alive until morning. You take it upon yourself to grab a flashlight and explore that thud you heard outside the cabin, making you the first victim of any lurking killer.
You have a pretty good read on people, Cancer. You’re one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac, so you notice if the vibrations die down pretty quickly. And though you’ll struggle to keep the tears from flowing once the bodies start hitting the ground, there’s a hidden warrior deep in your heart that surprises and delights audiences. You are the underdog of this horror story and you almost make it to the end, until you find yourself the victim of a massive betrayal. At the end, your confident side is what seals your fate as one of the final victims.

People know you for your ways of partying, and it’s no secret that you like to have a good time. However, in the face of danger, you are the first to defend those around you. As soon as things start to go wrong, you spring into action with a plan and aren’t afraid to put your own safety on the line. it’s your big mouth that means the end for you. After watching the majority of your friends perish, you scream into the night to taunt the killer, who attacks you from the shadows to end things once and for all.
You’re one of the first to die in this movie, Virgo, but not because you’re weak. In reality, your sense of detail means you notice something is wrong almost immediately. While the killer is driving everyone crazy, it’s you who notices that one of your friends seems too calm for the current situation. After gathering enough evidence that the villain is among you, you sneak out to call the police, where you’re confronted by said killer. The good news is that they congratulate you for being the only one who understands it. The bad news? They kill you after you refuse to help them carry out their plan.
This isn’t the vacation you signed up for, Libra. What started as a fun trip with your friends turned into a nightmare. You’re the first to come up with a plan (and a good one too), but there’s too much chaos for you to be heard above the noise. Faced with the prospect of almost certain catastrophe, you seek to embrace your passionate and romantic side and get as many thrills as you can before the time runs out. It’s not the best time to admit you have a crush on another character, but you might not get another chance. In the end, you and your darling find themselves tangled up for a final embrace when the killer slips in unnoticed and kills you both.
Dark and mysterious, you know a dark situation when you see it, Scorpio. The moment things go wrong, you’ll start looking for a paranormal explanation or clues that occult magic is being used against you. As a sign that rules death and rebirth, you are confident in your ability to reverse the evil mechanisms that terrorize you and your friends. And as a result, you end up finding the creepy hidden room filled with pentagrams and a sacrificial altar – just in time for the killer to lock the door behind you and offer you as a vessel for whatever unknown evil is behind it all.
You are zodiac trickster, Sagittarius. You’re known for your harmless pranks and wise ways, so you think the first deaths are your friends trying to put one on you. You spend the movie acting as comic relief and treating the whole situation like it’s a big joke. Believe it or not, that fearless attitude keeps you alive for most of the movie. However, you fall victim to the killer after he reveals his identity and you laugh in his face, still not believing this is all real.
You take life very seriously, Capricorn. And while your pessimistic worldview might be seen as a flaw in everyday life, that’s what helps you in this horror movie. Not only are you able to keep yourself and your allies alive for most of the film, but you also manage to uncover the identity of the killer before he can take you out. Alas, your keen sense of justice deceives you. After getting to safety, you return to find the killer and finish the job, which ends up mortally wounding each other. You may be the last victim in this twisted story, but you will come out a hero.
Against all odds and despite all your scratches with death, you make it out alive, Aquarius. You survive the first half of the movie using your problem-solving skills and above average intelligence (and, of course, a bit of luck). As the numbers start to dwindle and the killer closes in, it’s your original thought that gives you the idea to get them away from the group so you can execute your daring escape. Your plan is working perfectly, but unfortunately you’re the only one sticking to it. You are the only survivor who makes it to the service road and manages to signal a car for help.
Talk about a twist! Even if the public knew that the killer was part of the group, there is no way he would suspect you. And that’s what makes you the perfect villain, Pisces. Your sweet, doe-eyed personality does just the trick of lulling the group into a false sense of security while you choose your companions one by one. And you might have been able to get away with it too, if not for that final battle with the party hero that finally ends your reign of terror. Or do they? You’re pretty cunning, so only time will tell if this really is the end or if there’s a sequel in the works.
