    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.

    My favorite scene was definitely the man that did the bridge. That one was really cool and I like how it disassembled and reassembled itself. I kinda thought his facial expressions where funny. I gotta say, he was probably the least scariest. Oh, I also met the owner of the dog in that scene! In general it was really cool and it is definitely one of my favorite horror movies. :D

    Like the pale man is based on the Japanese Tenome, the pale lady is based on the Japanese Mu-Onna, which also absorbs children into her own flesh. The toe-eating story reminded me of Tailypo, and the creepy guy was based on the chilean Invunche.

    I loved all of the creatures or monsters in the movie, but I really liked Harold's scene I'm not saying he's my favorite but I like how they took the scene and slowed it down by having Harold not attack at the first given moment and stretching it out to pull you in closer and closer 😱. I FREAKING LOVED IT! 😍

    My sister watched the and we both read the book when we were kids. She said the gangly man in the movie is a mix of the monsters in “what do you come for” and “me ti doti Walker” . And from watching the sence, that actually makes sense. They combined to stories to be inclusive and not take so much time in the movie.

    The scene with the pale lady was probably one of the scariest scenes in a horror movie I've seen for a long, long time. I actually remember skipping her story in the book because just her appearance scared me so much as a child.
    The scene is just so cool in the sense that it allows the audience to feel the dread as she creeps up on her victim as he desperately tries to escape all by yourself. They don't rely on shitty jump scares or gore. They just let you watch as she closes in on Chuck and eventually absorbs him. It was absolute perfection.

  • morgan lawrence

    I mean I wouldn't call the Jangly man entirely original for the movie :T he does appear in a reference to the Dough Ty Walker story, which is about an old man agreeing to stay in a haunted house as long as he can have his dog with him, but he hears a voice calling "Me Tie Dough-Ty Walker" and the dog responding "Lynchee kinchy colly molly dingo dingo" before a severed head falls through the chimney and yells "Me Tie Dough-Ty Walker!" I mean yeah the design isn't from the story but that's how it comes in and the whole body coming in from the chimney thing

    I kind of Wish the film Covered two Stories from the Books "Bloody Fingers" and My Favorite "the little Black Dog". I think they could've done better with the "Me Tie Dough-ty Walker" especially Since the dog and the dead man sang to each other in the story... Kind of a let down

    Bro me and my friend watched this movie. And at first, I don't even know what to expect from this horror movie because I never heard of it. And after I watched it, IT WAS SO GOOD! I wonder what happend with the other 2 that's still missing :/ will there be a sequel? Cuz if there is, thank goodness. I wonder if the boy Harold killed(?) can come back again since.. He's literally turned into the scare crow.. And that scene was the most horrifying for me
