"Greetings fright-knights and monster-girls! It's your old pal Count Jackula from the planet Dracula, where bad movies stalk the night!"
Count Jackula

Count Jackula (a.k.a. Jack Shen) is a former reviewer on Channel Awesome, the website formerly known as That Guy with the Glasses, and formerly Reviewtopia and Reviewers Unknown. He claims to be from the planet Drakula and reviews little known horror movies. His videos can be also be found on The Agony Booth and Geekvision.


Count Jackula provides examples of:

  • All Men Are Perverts: He sure loves his ass and tits.
  • All There in the Manual: He has given information about Drakulons outside of his reviews, mainly in live streams.
  • Breakout Character: Count Wiseau-ula
    • Then Masked Slasher once Wiseau-ula eventually disappeared.
    • There is also Satanic Jackula who's done one review so far but mostly appears in rant videos and unboxing videos where Jack opens a Horror Block Box.
  • Brother–Sister Incest: Has admitted at one point that he wanted to fuck his older sister.
  • Catchphrase: "... was that racist?" whenever he says something that could be interpreted as Unfortunate Implications. He also refers to his viewers as "Fright Knights/Nights, Monster Girls, and Whores Of Satan."
  • Crossover: Regularly does them with the Horror Guru. Justified since they're roommates.
  • Dead Person Conversation: Jackula's Uncle Varney, a skull with two large fangs, makes appearances in many of his reviews with often sexual commentary. Uncle Varney is named after the vampire in the penny dreadful Varney The Vampire Or The Feast Of Blood by James Malcolm Rymer.
  • Enfant Terrible: Both In-Universe and in Real Life. Jack Shen was raised by Fundamentalist Christians and spent a good chunk of his childhood almost blindly following his congregation's terrifyingly bigoted views.
  • Even Evil Has Standards:
    • He's disturbed by the accuracy of the Fred Phelps Expy's sermon in Red State due to his own personal experiences with such topics.
    • 80s!Jackula is frightened by the future's increasing amounts of political correctness but is even more horrified to discover that 9/11 will happen soon.
  • Gorn: He literally ejaculates blood when he has a "goregasm".
  • Hidden Depths: Within the fifteen to twenty minutes of maniacally gushing about the violence and promiscuity of something he reviews, he'll often drop insightful interpretations about the context behind a film's creation and its producers' intentions behind their choices.
  • Human Aliens: Though Jack has mentioned in a live stream that Drakulons' human forms are not their true ones.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: He's really into it when movies go all out with its violence.
  • In-Name-Only: His problem with Halloween II (2009). He thinks Rob Zombie has created a well-done psychological slasher with well-developed characters and an impressive amount of thought put into its symbolism and plot. The problem is that it's supposed to be a Halloween film.
  • Large Ham
  • Nice Hat: The Count's top hat & goggles
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business:
    • He takes his hat off and is much more serious when examining a scene in Red State where a Fred Phelps Expy gives a sermon, saying that certain things the pastor says (encouraging small children to have homophobic attitudes, saying that tolerance of others is evil, and that disasters are God punishing the wicked) resemble certain things Shen himself was taught or experienced when he was growing up as a Fundamentalist Christian.
    • Often when fighting between parents occur, Jack will suddenly break down in tears begging for his own parents to stop fighting, a big contrast to his usual Ax-Crazy personality.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Drakulons and earth vampires are not one and the same. Drakulons are much stronger than earth vampires, can fly through space, and don't have as many weaknesses as earth vampires. For instance, they don't turn to dust in the sun or 'need' to sleep on home soil. Because of this, earth vampires are considered the 'retarded cousins' of Drakulons. Both can poof into bats though, as seen in Count Jackula's most recent videos.
  • Shared Universe: Due to his inclusion on Channel Awesome, his many cameos, and the occasional crossover, Count Jackula is part of the Reviewaverse.
  • Steam Punk: His outfit certainly fits the style, especially the top hat and goggles combo.
  • World of Weirdness: The Reviewaverse. Jackula is a space alien vampire for crying out loud!
