How much do we love Scorpios? Let us count the ways. Although their energy can seem calm and subdued, there’s an intense depth of emotion churning underneath the surface. Scorpios are fearless, creative, and bold, so naturally, their taste in shows and films would follow suit!

Although they can be a total mystery, we think Scorpios will love this list of complex (and sometimes twisted) TV shows and movies – all available on various streaming services!

TV Shows for Scorpios

‘True Blood’ (2008 – 2014)

Tune in on Hulu to watch telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) navigate a life full of supernatural activity, mystery, and enough romantic tension to sharpen a fang after her fateful meeting with Southern gentleman Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

Scorpios will love “True Blood” for its twisted plot and complex interpersonal relationships. They also get bored by a lack of passion – and trust us, there’s no shortage of sparks here.

‘Orphan Black’ (2013 – 2017)

Ruled by the planet Pluto, Scorpios are governed by a sense of transformation and destruction – both themes that the hit sci-fi thriller series (available to stream on Amazon Prime Video) “Orphan Black” touches on.

Follow street-smart hustler Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) as she gets pulled into a shocking conspiracy involving women that look exactly like her. “Orphan Black” is a fast-moving series that keeps viewers guessing and questioning where they draw the line between scientific advancement and human ethics.

‘The Haunting of Hill House’ (2018)

Like Scorpios themselves, “The Haunting of Hill House” is representative of a home that, despite its calm and cool exterior, is rife with emotional turmoil. This sign is incredibly sensitive and in touch with the supernatural side of the veil, and their willingness to dive deep makes them the perfect audience for this horror miniseries.

“The Haunting of Hill House” and its sister miniseries, “The Haunting of Blye Manor” and “Midnight Mass,” are all available to watch on Netflix.

‘Euphoria’ (2019 – Present)

With characters that are no strangers to drama, “Euphoria” follows a group of high school students as they clash and cope with issues like sex, drugs, and violence. It’s a hit series on HBO Max that many signs will be drawn to, but we think Scorpios will especially love the show.

Scorpios don’t shy away from the darker, messier sides of life and will be able to easily keep up with and perhaps empathize with each of the uber-complex characters.

Movies for Scorpios

‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ (1993)

Scorpios are naturally creative, sentimental, and mystical, making “The Nightmare Before Christmas” a perfect watch for this whimsical and spooky sign. And, like Jack Skellington (Chris Sarandon), they can be a tad idealistic, which can lead to confusing – although well-meaning – hijinks.

Perfect for Halloween through the winter holiday season, this classic Tim Burton film is full of iconic musical numbers from Danny Elfman and is available to watch on Disney Plus.

‘The Craft’ (1996)

Available on Amazon Prime, “The Craft” has reached cult classic status for its girl-power forward plot that served as inspiration for future shows and movies as well as witches on and off screen.

The plot is fueled by a young coven seeking power and revenge – two things that Scorpios will certainly appreciate. And let’s face it: Although we don’t know her birthday, Nancy Downs (Fairuza Balk) is probably the ultimate Scorpio.

‘Spirited Away’ (2001)

Watch this classic Studio Ghibli film on HBO Max the next time you or your favorite Scorpio is craving a comfort watch. With its iconic characters and a plotline that transcends cultural barriers, “Spirited Away” follows a young girl, Chihiro (Daveigh Chase/Rumi Hiiragi), in a magical coming-of-age tale that takes place in the spirit realm.

Much like Chihiro, Scorpios are deeply spiritual, hard-working, and able to take confusing and seemingly impossible situations in stride.

‘Black Swan’ (2010)

Dark, twisted, and insanely intense, “Black Swan” follows ballerina Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman), who is so dedicated to the perfection of her art that she begins questioning her own sanity – a trait that we think Scorpios could potentially align with (but hopefully not to the same degree).

It’s a heavy watch (available on Hulu) that involves taking a deeper look at inner demons, but it also features truly stunning performances – perfect for an artsy Scorpio!
