Creator / That Long Haired Creepy Guy

Salutations, and welcome...

That Long-Haired Creepy Guy, aka The Creepy One, is a guy with long hair, who may or may not actually be creepy.

An internet reviewer of television programs, cartoons, softcore erotica, porn parodies, and telefilms, he got his start in the blogs section of That Guy with the Glasses after several failed attempts involving faulty editing software. Unlike most reviewers, he typically avoids the Caustic Critic routine, preferring to look at a subject's positive and negative points.

His primary review series, Looking Back in Annoyance, was inspired from the last episode of Daria, and explored the medium of television in the hopes of showcasing how it could be improved. A particular example of this was a segment called 'Pilot Lite', where he reviewed failed TV pilots, judging whether there was something salvageable in the pitched show or not.

In March of 2014, after YouTube shut down his channel (he had already lost his Blip page during the Blip Purge of the previous year), he reopened a second channel featuring some new shows as well as a few of his classic reviews. One of these new shows is "Creepy and Chibi-Cthulu's Cinematic Critique", which has him and his Eldritch Abomination sidekick, Chibi-Cthulu, review movies from various parts of geek culture. Unlike most review shows, Creepy tends to focus on movies he finds good or appealing. He's also doing a series of episode-by-episode retrospectives, including Scooby-Doo, Batman: The Animated Series, X-Men, the 1980s Garfield specials, and Jem and the Holograms.

A spin-off series, Midnight Wank Theater, takes a look at the best of the worst in late-night softcore, as well as modern porn parody flicks. This is similar in tone to the Cinema Snob's 'Softly From Cable'... but with the Creepy One sitting in an easy chair in a bathrobe and Mardi Gras mask.

In addition to reviewing, he is also a published author, whose books can be found here (not necessarily SFW!)

These days, he can be found on Manic Expression. You can also check out his main page, and Midnight Wank Theater (NSFW) on YouTube.

  • Added Alliterative Appeal - Creepy and Chibi-Cthulu's Cinematic Critique.
  • Alter Ego Acting Averted. His reviews are pretty much just him sitting in a recliner in front of a camera giving his own personal opinions about subjects.
  • Angrish - Chibi-Cthulu's speech often degenerates into this when a show is sufficiently offensive to him.
  • Badass Beard Very much so.
  • Berserk Button - Not Creepy himself, but Chibi-Cthulu does not like Jem. At all. Which makes the fact that they're doing a retrospective on the entire show that much more amusing from a Schadenfreude perspective.
  • Big Beautiful Man - 6'4", stocky, and an imposing presence when put up against...well, almost anyone else.
  • Bi the Way He's become pretty unapologetic about this, and even lampshades it on occasion.
  • The Cameo Appeared in Timdiana's 'More Than Meets the Eye' review trilogy twice.
  • Catch Phrase Originally, "And now, because [insert here], it's time for Looking Back in Annoyance. With your host, That Long-Haired Creepy Guy."
    • Also, his send-off blessing at the end of every review.
    • Currently, his greeting seems to be "Salutations, and welcome to [insert here]"
    • "Stay safe, and we'll see you next Wank" for the end of Midnight Wank Theater.
  • Caustic Critic Averted. He doesn't go for the whole 'angry reviewer' shtick. Many people find this to be a breath of fresh air.
    • Chibi-Cthulu, on the other hand, has a tendency to go for the jugular.
  • Cool Shades - Part of his "Creepy" regalia. Midnight Wank Theater switches them out for an elaborate, gaudy Mardi Gras mask.
  • Covert Pervert - Kindle, despite being an adorable tiger with an equally cute Verbal Tic, has already exhibited a marked interest in Size Shifters.
  • Crossover Did this with fellow Internet reviewer Decker Shado, "the internet personality with the best hair", after Decker tried dipping his toe into the Creepy One's territory by reviewing Return to the Planet of the Apes. Creepy did not approve.
  • Cultured Badass Going by appearances, and his manner of speech, he is this. The Creepy One could be best described as what might happen if the host of Masterpiece Theater became a Hell's Angel.
  • Dark Is Not Evil - Looks like something between a Goth and a Badass Biker, but is in fact a reasonable and level-headed reviewer.
    • Chibi-Cthulu, for being an Eldritch Abomination in plush size, is probably the least scary version of the guy we've ever seen, and not just because he's cute.
  • Deadpan Snarker His whole reviewing style is full of this.
    • Chibi-Cthulu's newfound ability to speak takes this Up to Eleven.
  • Deep South Lives there, though you wouldn't know it going by his manner of speech.
  • Everythings Cuter With Plushie Tigers - Kindle.
  • Executive Meddling Cites this as the cause for why most TV shows end up being unwatchable.
  • Hypocritical Humor - Chibi-Cthulu hates Jem...or so he claims. Cue the second episode of Creepy's "Jemtrospective", which opens with Chibi singing the original theme song in a dream — and then he's singing it again over the credits.
  • Ironic Name More than one person has noted that he is nowhere near as 'creepy' as the name suggests.
    • Ironic Nickname His name comes from what people in the area where he lives would say as he walked by, i.e. 'There goes that long-haired creepy guy.' The online community by far sees this as a malapropism.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy Subverted. He's a bit too rough to fit the archetype. He fits better into the Bara Genre category.
  • Mr. Fanservice - for the Bear crowd. He's a Big Beautiful Man, tall and stocky, with a penchant for reviewing certain things in his underwear, Cool Hat, and shades.
  • Nerds Are Virgins Was subjected to this trope throughout high school. In reality, he'd solved that little problem via a technicality, but couldn't be bothered to inform anyone.
  • Nice Hat He has one, and wears it often.
  • The Pornomancer Let's face it, the man knows a thing or three about the porn industry, and should probably be directing one by now.
    • If the rumors about his love life are any indication, he's done things that most guys would shoot their own mothers to experience.
  • Precision F-Strike He's pretty low-key as far as swearing goes.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter His Chibi-Cthulhu plushie. Also doubles as a Companion Cube, as one of his intros shows him arguing with it as if it were real.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni - Whenever he reviews with Decker Shado, or does a review where Chibi-Cthulu speaks, he ends up as the Blue Oni to their Red.
    • As far as his plushie companions go, Kindle is rapidly shaping up to be the Blue Oni to Chibi-Cthulu's Red.
  • Screwed by the Network Any show that had this happen to it will most likely be covered by him at some point.
    • This may or may not be happening to his own channel currently, thanks to YouTube's stricter copyright policies.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness He dips into this on occasion, though not often enough that it's difficult to follow.
  • Squee! - He's more subdued about it, most of the time, but his Batman: The Animated Series retrospective has been one long fangasm.
    • In his X-Men retrospective, Chibi-Cthulu gets like this every time Storm is onscreen.
  • Stalker with a Crush A couple of reviews hint that he is one.
  • Suddenly Voiced - Chibi-Cthulu, as of Creepy's review of the Wild CA Ts animated series.
  • Urban Legend Love Life This plagued him while he worked for a certain retail chain.
  • Verbal Tic - Kindle, his plush tiger sidekick for Midnight Wank Theater, has a habit of peppering his sentences with cute, if deep, "mrrraow"-ing sounds.
    Kindle: "Hey, I'm a cute tiger. Cute tigers must say cute tiger-y things. It's what the Internet expects!"
