    Harold Explained
    Ok so first up is Harold who has pretty much become the face of the marketing for the movie. Whilst the character looks exetremly close to his characterisation in the original source material there is actually a lot that differs in the on screen depiction. In the literature Harold was created by two cow farmers named Thomas and Alfred who named him after a boy that they hated and they pretty much used him as a punching bag.

    The Big Toe Explained
    Up next is the big toe which is one of my favourite parts of the film. This actually sticks quite close to the source material which centred around a boy yanking on a big toe in his garden and pulling it out of the ground. Little did he know that he’d just pulled the toe off the body that it was attached to and it’s owner begins to stalk him. The boy and his family all eat the toe which is sliced up into three pieces and similar to the film, put into a stew.

    That night when he is asleep the Toe’s owner comes into his room and eats him which happens to the character of Auggie in the film who is dragged out from under his bed and then disappears, never to be seen again.

    The Pale Lady Explained
    From here we go to The Pale Lady. The Pale Lady is an infamous specter that has appeared in ghost stories over the centuries so it makes sense that she would also be part of the Scary Stories Saga. The Pale lady made her debut in the Scary Story titled The Dream in which she, like the woman in the big toe, stalks her prey menacingly.

    In the source material she tries to warn the character Lexi Morgan to flee which is a warning that she heeds but the sheer vision of the creature sticks in her head long after she comes into contact with it. I think the scariest thing about The Pale lady is the fact that she is almost statuesque for the most part but there’s no real escape from her. Her facial expressions don’t display much and she almost comes across as completely oblivious to the sheer terror that she is causing.

    The Jangly Man
    Finally is The Jangly Man, an original creature that was created solely for the film. What’s so brilliant about him is that he perfectly fits the aesthetic of the movie and feels like a completely natural addition to the work. The Jangly Man is able to build himself from body parts and this disjointedness to his appearance makes his appearance seem almost alien.

    The Jangly Man appears this way because he is put in place to torment Ramon who lost his brother in the Vietnam War and the severed limbs that he displays really hit home for the character when he makes his way to the movie. When discussing this design Del Toro said that The Jangly Man was originally meant to have more limbs attached to him to represent body parts returning from the war but this would have added more workload on the special effects which the creators wanted to keep as practical as possible.

        There was also a scene in the movie, i forget what was said exactly but when Ramon was reading through one of Stella's stories he made a comment on the lines of "wow so her dog was actually a rat" and that's a reference to one of the stories where a girl thought she found a stray hairless chiuhuahua, only for it to later reveal that it was actually a large sewer rat with rabies. Wasn't sure if anyone picked up on it but I thought it was worth mentioning

                    When I watched the film, I felt that the Jangly Man's appearance was inspired by the illustration for the story Aaron Kelly's Bones. It's about a man who dies and comes back as a zombie when his wife starts dating again. The man plays an instrument and as Aaron starts to dance, he begins to fall apart. They rebury him with his bones all jumbled up so that he can't reconnect and do it again. I guess it's just my hypothesis since even the filmmakers say Jangly Man is a new creation, but definitely fits in well with the other creations.

                            Also so happy someone like Guillermo del Toro is directing this.he is a horror genius.even if it's not a horror film he knows how to make you feel unsettled.

                                        The pale lady was the only clever monster in the movie. The only thing the other monsters did was to chase their victims, unoriginal and not scary.

                                          There was a nod to The red ribbon when the girl dressed as a witch used to lipstick around her neck. I'm happy that the monsters look like the original artwork . My favorite is Harold. I live in an area that has a lot of farms . I have always loved and feared scarecrows.

                                            Great movie and very good book adaptations. I really had a good time watching it.

                                              Nomadic Santa  21 hours back

                                              I'm not sure what the story was called, but there was one in one of the books that was very similar (at least to how the monster was made) pieces of a body falling down the chimney, one limb/piece for several nights, until the last one falls. The corpse puts himself back together...and dances around the room until it falls back apart. Maybe not the same thing that happens in the movie, but could that be the story the movie was hinting at?

                                                Actually, The Jangy Man is supposed to be “Me Tie Dough Ty Walker” from the book series, you can even see the title when the police officer holds the book reading the story. It’s just mainly called The Jangly Man because in the movie they wanted it told as a campfire story because they wanted to build a background for one of the main characters. The elements from the Me Tie Dough Ty Walker book are there. First you have the dog who barks at the chimney like in the book, secondly like in the book the head falls down first. Although the boy isn’t in the story the police officer taking his place fits, and the last detail is in the story it only happens at night, like what happen in the police station.

                                                  The jangly man was a link to me ty doughty walker. When the head shouts “me ty doughty walker” you can hear the dog growling “Lynchee kinchee Molly Wolly dingo Dingo!” They repeat this a few times when the head comes down

                                                      The Jangly Man is a boring CG piece of shit. Can't beat the originals.
