    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.

      @Maleek R/Fergus you know what it reminds of a particular creature in The original Devil May Cry game, being The Nobodys having mangle limbs walking in all fours, which it just cool for Monster design in the film.

      Definitely the Pale lady one. It was so anxiety inducing, and the red lights started to mess with me after a while. Also it was cool because even before he ran into the Pale Lady it was creepy how he was being chased by all the hospital workers.

                  It would've been cool if at the end of the movie they added one of those joke short stories like the baseball in heaven lol

                  • nieveves video game shitposting and more

                    The girl from the Dream story is actually named Lucy Morgan, and Harold is holding a bloody skin at the end of his story, not a corpse. Nice video otherwise

                        The pale lady was so adorable! Harold just gave Tommy karma, so that's ok too. Given Tommy seems to be in a lot of pain and choking for air when he's transforming, like he can't breath anymore, it was cool. Then Harold most likely brought it back to his post to hang there in his place, and he went away after? Pale Lady and Big Toe also don't come back once they had their victims, so they must eb a one time thing. Once they have their victims finished, they cease to be/disappear? Jangly Man would have also probably disappeared too after killing Ramon, but Sarah recalled him first.

                                  My favorite is the dead man who didn’t feel dead. I’m not sure what the name of the story or the creature though.

                                      I love how NOT scary all the monsters are. The only one that comes close to being somewhat creepy is the big toe. This movie is such a huge waste of time. Boo!

                                                                                They’ve really breathed life into Alvin Schwartz’s work

Some studios have unlimited material to work with for their movies, and quite often mess it up. These monsters did their book counterparts amazing justice.

                                                                                • Dominik Black

First and most obviously is "Me Ti Doughty Walker" where a severed head falls down a chimney and says those words. The Jangly Man says the same words with his first appearance being his head rolling out of the fireplace. The rest of the pieces of his body follow, paying homage to the story "What Do You Come For" in which an old woman is lonely and asks for company. Suddenly 2 feet fall down the chimney, followed by 2 legs, 2 arms, a torso etc. The scene in the movie brought that story to life perfectly, even if it was just a subtle nod to it. The Jangly Man himself didn't scare me much when I saw him on screen, but i did appreciate the less obvious references they made to books when designing his character
