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.

    Here's one you missed!!

    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.'

      If 1968 was the loss of innocence for America what was 400 years of slavery?

              When Ramon enters Stella’s room he reads one of her stories that she has written about a dog that turns out to be a sewer rat. That is one of the stories from the books.

                  Its so weird to see this become a movie, i always read the stories from the book as a kid and wanted to see them come to life, and now they have!

                        I'm pretty sure the Jangly Man was from the scary story called, "What Do You Come For?" In the book, the creature is described as being a gangling man.

                                I think I had the first book (or at least had dreams of reading it) and it scared me because I think one of them was about a stalker (I can't remember correctly)

                                        As south east asian, this movie is not scary at all for me, because it is just about monster, try watching horror movie from indonesia/malaysia/thailand there is the real ghost.

                                              The jangly man is a cross between “me tie dough-ty walker!” and “what do you come for?”

                                                I think when Stella drew the red lipstick across her neck when she was changing into her costume, that was suppose to reference the red ribbon story.

                                                    I saw this today and noticed two more things: In the very last shot of Harold/Tommy, after Stella and Ramone find him, a beetle crawls out of his eye and down his cheek, resembling a teardrop. Also, in the prison, Ramone specifically says that his brother was “shipped back from Vietnam IN PIECES.” There has to be a significance between this and the fact that the Jangly Man is comprised of literal pieces of a corpse.

There’s different ways to play Bloody Mary so that’s what I think
