Everyone knows you're the bravest and most daring sign of the zodiac. While others are running scared or lost in a panic, you're the one putting together a heroic plan to save yourself and everyone else. Your cunning and quick-thinking mind is what keeps you alive throughout most of the film, and you take out a henchman or two along the way. Sadly, you meet your end while holding off the villain in a daring face-off that ends in your selfless sacrifice for the good of the group. Although you don't make it out of this one alive, your friends will always remember your bravery in the face of certain doom.

Let's be real, Taurus, you probably didn't want to go on whatever camping trip landed you in this mess in the first place. But your best friend convinced you to spend a weekend in the creepy woods, and now you find yourself being chased by a psycho killer. The good news is that your nerves of steel and practical approach to problem-solving keep you alive through most of this terrifying ordeal. However, your loyalty is what's ultimately your downfall. You die after going back for an injured friend and falling right into the trap the killer set for you.

Gemini: Dies after splitting from the group

Curious and critical, you're the first in the group to notice something's amiss. And as the outspoken extrovert of the zodiac, you're also the first to express your unease with everyone, even if they don't listen at first. Your ability to see a situation from every possible angle is what tips you off that there's a killer in the midst, but it's not enough to keep you alive until morning. You take it upon yourself to grab a flashlight and explore that loud crash you heard outside the cabin—making you the first victim of whatever killer is laying in wait.

Cancer: Dies after trusting the wrong person

You have a pretty good read on people, Cancer. You're one of the most intuitive signs of the zodiac, so you notice if vibes are off pretty quickly. And while you do find it hard to keep the tears from flowing once the bodies start to hit the floor, there's a warrior hidden deep in your heart that surprises and delights the audience. You're the underdog of this horror story, and you nearly make it to the end—until you find yourself on the receiving end of a massive betrayal. In the end, your trusting side is what seals your fate as one of the final victims.

People know you for your partying ways, and it's no secret that you like to have a good time. However, in the face of danger, you're the first to defend those around you. The moment things start to go sideways, you leap into action with a plan, and you're not afraid to put your own safety on the line. Although you might have made it out alive on your daring risks alone, it's your big mouth that spells 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.

Virgo: Dies after discovering the killer's identity

You're one of the first to die in this film, Virgo, but not because you're weak. In fact, your eye for detail means you pick up that something's off almost immediately. While the killer has everyone else in a frenzy, you're the one 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 off to call the police, where you're confronted by said killer. The good news is they congratulate you on being the only one to figure it out. 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 has turned into a nightmare. You're the first to come up with a plan (and a good one at that), but there's too much chaos for you to be heard above the noise. When faced with the prospect of almost certain doom, you're looking to embrace your passionate and romantic side and get in as many thrills as you can before the clock 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 sweetie find yourself tangled up for one last embrace when the killer slips in unnoticed and kills you both.

Dark and mysterious, you know a bleak situation when you see it, Scorpio. The moment things go awry, you'll start looking for a paranormal explanation or clues that occult magic is being employed against you. As the sign that rules over death and rebirth, you're confident in your ability to reverse whatever wicked workings are terrorizing 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 up as a vessel for whatever unknown evil is behind all of this.

Sagittarius: Dies thinking it's a prank

You're the trickster of the zodiac, Sagittarius. You're known for your harmless pranks and wise-cracking ways, so you think the first few deaths are your friends trying to get one over on you. You spend the movie acting as the comic relief and treating the entire situation like it's one big joke. Believe it or not, this fearless attitude actually keeps you alive for the majority of the film. However, you fall victim to the killer after they reveal their identity and you laugh in their face, still not believing any of this is real.

You take life pretty seriously, Capricorn. And while your pessimistic worldview might be seen as a flaw in day-to-day life, it'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 discover the killer's identity before they can take you out. Alas, your strong sense of justice does you in. After making your way to safety, you go back to find the killer and finish the job, which ends with you both mortally wounding each other. You may be the last victim in this twisted tale, but you'll go out being a hero.

Aquarius: Congratulations, you're the "final girl!"

Against all odds and despite all your scrapes with death, you actually 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 little bit of luck). As the numbers start to dwindle and the killer closes in, it's your out-of-the-box thinking that gives you the idea to lure them away from the group so you can execute your daring escape. Your plan works perfectly, but sadly, you're the only one who sticks to it. You're the lone survivor who makes it to the service road and manages to flag a car down for help.

Pisces: Surprise, surprise—you're the killer!

Talk about a plot twist! Even if audiences knew the killer was among the group, there's no chance they suspected you. And that's what makes you the perfect villain, Pisces. Your sweet, doe-eyed personality does just the trick to lull the group into a false sense of security while you pick off your companions one by one. And you might've gotten away with it, too, if not for that final battle with the hero of the group who finally puts an end to your reign of terror. Or do they? You're quite the cunning one, so only time will tell if this really is the end or if there's a sequel in the works.
