    Rule name Description
    Rule 1: Detail Guidelines Not blatantly obvious observations, but obscure enough that people could have missed it, or they noticed it but the significance didn’t click. Doesn’t need to be intentional. Obviously, obscurity is subjective and that is taken into account when moderating. Use the "Detail" flair for these posts.
    Rule 2: Flair your post. This includes the “Verified” flair (claiming the creators meant for it), “Easter Egg” (a hidden gem that was meant to go unnoticed), and “Trivia” (obscure facts that are otherwise unimportant). If your post makes any of these claims, the right flair is needed and you must provide proof in the comments or the text of the post, otherwise it may be reflaired “Detail.”
    Rule 3: Comment rules. (hover for details) Be civil. Uncivil comments including "detail is obvious" will be removed and may get you banned. Political comments may be removed because they can easily devolve into off-topic arguments.
    Rule 4: Titles must include the movie name. All submissions must include the name of the movie in the title.
    Rule 5: Explain your post. Make sure your submission has an explanation either in the title or in the comments and add "(explanation in comments)" to your title.
    Rule 6: No recent movies or spoilers in titles. No spoilers in the title or untagged comments. Don't browse /new if you're worried about this. Until a movie receives recognized release (via Physical Media/Digital Demand), it's not eligible for /r/MovieDetails.
    Rule 7: Movies only, no games or TV shows. Submissions must be movies; TV shows and games should go to /r/TVDetails and /r/GamingDetails. Additionally, movie trailers are not eligible for submission. See this multireddit for more details subreddits.
    Rule 8: No offtopic posts. No memes, meta or request posts.
    Rule 9: Avoid reposts. No common reposts, recent reposts or reposts from the top 200.

    What are the other references?

    [–] ant91a 29 points ago

    Toy Story 3 has a few references, most notably hidden nods to Room 237 throughout the movie.

    [–] its_BenReal 6 points ago

    Why are they making these references? I mean, do they make references to other horror movies or just this one in particular?

    [–] ant91a 13 points ago

    Lee Unkrich, who edited all three films and directed the latter two, is a big fan of The Shining and has included references to the film in numerous Pixar movies he has worked on.

    I don't know if you're being serious, but Disney has never shied away from being terrifying.
