* For ''Film/AMuppetFamilyChristmas'' he keeps showing supposed clips of ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'', actually clips from an acting seminar Michael Caine hosted which out of context make him seem completely unhinged, while Kermit listens in increasing bemusement, including quietly saying "I'm afraid of you" just before the video silently goes to commercial.

* The ending to ''Film/MyPetMonster'' shows the Critic suffering an existential crisis, but what really makes it unnerving is how this faint music can be heard randomly drifting in and out.

** Being hostage for two weeks gave Critic a fuckton of trauma (some of it detailed down below), and a preview for Project Mystery has him break down in just three straight days of her not leaving him alone. NothingIsScarier applies, as there’s only hints of what happened.

* Doug as Adam in the ''Series/{{Mythbusters}}'' segment of ''Sharknado'' looks like he's having a seizure. In her [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHLKzQeJPEE BTS]] video, Rachel agrees that he's more creepy than he should be.

* In the ''Devil'' review, while subverted in that Devil!Malcolm is the one who 'dies', the DroneOfDread that plays while Critic mixes both stupidity and being suicidal, goading the devil into killing him and nearly succeeding, is still a nerve-wracking moment.

* After Tamara gives a speech about how Critic should be free to celebrate Christmas the way he wants in "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer", he grabs her in Riddler make-up and screams in her face. Now that's a JumpScare. This is followed by a song about how AxCrazy he is about loving Christmas that terrifies both her and Malcolm. Here's some, ahem, highlights:

* Up until TheReveal of [[spoiler: Jon Tron getting back at Critic for re-reviewing FoodFight]], the Nostalgia-Ween 2014 opening, first seen in the ''Film/MaximumOverdrive'' review: a first person POV in a mask stalking through Doug's dark house and stabbing Critic. The fact that it's a BigLippedAlligatorMoment doesn't actually help, given Critic's tendency for hallucinations.

* In ''[[Film/{{FreddyVsJason}} Freddy Vs Jason]]'' where Critic testing crossover battle, one of the infamous part was [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Ash Ketchum with Pikachu]] is battle against [[Franchise/EvilDead Ash Williams]] when Williams chainsaw at Pikachu, later Critic heard that Ketchum is crying where he yelled at him to "Suck it up", but even worse that Ketchum is holding Pikachu decapitate head and Ash Williams said "Pokémon Go Fuck Yourself".

* The movie clips in "Old Vs New: Evil Dead" constantly feature gore, with "Best Gore" even being a category in the battle, making many fans uncomfortable who would rather focus on the sketches in the episode.

* When the Critic is found dead at the end of ''Literature/{{It}}'', Rob's intentionally {{narm}}y face reactions are great fun, but the high piano melody from the film skips like a BrokenRecord and so still keeps some fear in there.

Added DiffLines:

* It ends up okay because '''engagement''', but Hyper knowing all about creeper male cosplayers and letting Deadpool* touch her boobs because "it's his choice" gives more disturbing ammo to her views on consent, both giving and receiving.
