    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.

                                            I didn’t really like the amount of screamers on this movie... also didn’t feel del toros style.... I was really disappointed while leaving thetheater.

                                              The jangly man wasn't original to the film, it's a story in the book. Each piece of his body falls from the chimney just like in the film. That's why he kept saying "me tie doughty walker" that's what the story was called in the book.

                                                the barking dog was also part of the story but yeah this is the jangly man:

                                              i watched this last night and the one that was scariest for me was the jangly man because at first it wasn’t that scary in fact i was laughing with my friend but when his body pieces came apart after he got hit by the car and then the jumpscare came scared me so badly that when we were driving back home i decided to look behind me and i scared myself because i thought something was on the car but it was the windshield 😭😂

                                                Although I didn’t find this movie to be the scariest movie that’s come out this year, it’s a good gateway movie for younger audiences to get introduced to horror films given the pg13 rating. The story, practical effects, and acting were done well and the movie as a whole was enjoyable..

                                                John Wick 3 however I loved incredibly 😂😉

                                                        I think the beginning of The Big Toe in the book really gave the story its atmosphere. The thought of a family randomly finding human remains in their back yard and thinking let's put it in the stew is just as gruesome as the rest of the story. Just like good horror, it leaves so many more questions than it answers.

                                                              The jangly man was the best creature for me, how he enters the room and kill the police officer, really scary.
                                                              And they actually put some backup story for ramon and his monster. Kinda like inner demons unlike the others.

                                                                            I loved the film but Harold was too far from the original and ended with more body horror feeling than terror. The Big Toe was just kind of a jump scare and the creature had too little screen time in my opinion. The red spot was well done but was a weird addition to the film as it wasn’t as deadly as the other stories and didn’t fit well with the overall story. The Pale Lady was horrifying as she was always just...there. And you couldn’t get away from her. The Jangly man was kind of where it felt like the climax, it’s introduction with the police officer was a bit funny and actually made people in theatre laugh with no real tension being built and with it being a straight battle/chase scene. Again I loved this film but a Netflix series with a great budget definitely would have served this better!

                                                                                I felt really bad when Chuck died/got absorbed, he was trying to avoid his death, or the Red Room by telling his friends about it, avoiding to go in the room, and when she appeared he tried running into multiple hallways and trying to open doors just to get away from her and try to live.

I was really worried it was going to suck but they were faithful to the books while also putting their own spin on it. I also love how the effects are mostly practical.
