Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Beetlejuice (1988) 

You can be quite the difficult zodiac sign, Capricorn.

Considering how deeply the Maitlands hate the Deetzes, Beetlejuice is definitely the perfect Halloween movie for you.

Eccentric as you may be sometimes, Aquarius, you're also a highly intellectual and thoughtful person. You can easily adapt to any energy around you, making you an expert problem-solver who can view multiple sides of an issues without prejudice. ParaNorman is definitely the Halloween movie for you. Not only can you relate to his ability to fit into two worlds, you can also understand how Norman still feels like an outsider, despite the fact that he has double the chance to bond with the people (and ghosts) around him. It's a feeling you've definitely experienced before, Aquarius, so the message of this movie is sure to resonate with you deeply and push you into a holiday mood, whether or not you want to be.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Coraline (2009)

Sweet and gentle Pisces—you have a tendency to live with your head in the clouds. You're always dreaming about how things could be, instead of focusing on how they are now. You want to escape reality, but Coraline might just teach you that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. When Coraline discovers an alternate world behind a secret door, she thinks she may have found the universe that hers could have been, if life had gone more smoothly. However, that alternate reality might not be all it appears to. It's the ideal movie for you because it mimics your own tendency to run away, making it scary on a personal level—the ultimate mark of a truly successful Halloween film.
