Everything You Might Have Missed In ‘Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark’ | Pop Culture Decoded

  • Published: 09 August 2019
  • The monsters in the books that kept you up at night as a kid have finally been brought to life, thanks to André Øvredal and his 2019 film “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.” The movie features a number of popular tales from the classic children’s books including “The Red Spot,” “Harold,” "The Dream," and “The Big Toe,” and weaves them together with a new story and new characters set in 1968. There are lots of references to the time period and Easter eggs from the books throughout. Here are all the details you may not have picked up on with your hands over your eyes.

        In the movie when ramone reads one of Stella’s story’s about sams new pet which is a sewer rat it is actually a story in one of the books I think the first one but I could be wrong.

                  I liked the movie just not the kids being in it because I would have liked it more if movie was more story by story with different characters kinda like abc’s of death

                          I actually think before the head falls down the chimney the dog doesn’t respond with that chant but I could swear that I almost saw some cgi editing where it mumbled something back. Hopefully someone else noticed

                              You missed that one part where Ramon picks up Stella’s journal of stories she’s written which mentions the plot of “Sam’s New Pet” from the 3rd book. I think this could be a setup into the next part of the series or was just foreshadowing what Stella must do to help Sarah. I just found it odd that she wrote the story and not Sarah.

                                      You forgot about the mention of the “New pet” story that was also in the horror books which is about a boy name Sam mistaking a sewer rat with a dog. It was stated in the main girls room at one point by the love interest boy (sorry forgot their names LOL).

                                                  I was focused on something and was just listening to the dude talking, but once he said “Pan’s Labyrinth” I immediately looked up at the screen. My favorite horror movie of all time.

                                                      I’ve watched a few of these “things you missed” videos and no one seems to notice the shout-out to the story about the guy who finds a dog; who turns out to be a rat. I believe it was one of Sarah’s short stories. Her friend goes, “oh so his dog turned out to be a rat all along?”

                                                        4:21 Actually, I heard the dog growl-chanting something. It seemed to be repeating that chant over and over before the jangly man revealed himself. It doesn’t just growl...

                                                                  Towards the beginning of the movie when Ramon first goes to Stella's house he picks up a story that she had been writing and reads it. The line is something like "-and Sam found out that his pet dog had been a sewer rat with rabies all along. That's pretty dark." --or something like that.

                                                                  Anywho-! It was a callback to a story in the, I believe 3rd book, called 'Sam's New Pet.'
