Fridge / Phelous


  • Fridge Logic: When the A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) remake reveals Teddy Krueger has been murdering the children he molested before he died. And a dog that was apparently dreaming about him as well.
    Phelous: I have only one question - would that work for the record player too?

  • Fridge Brilliance: During the Let's Play of Resident Evil, Lupa is explaining how Carrie can't aspire to explode heads(It Makes Sense in Context) because she is dead. Phelous, who had previously chastised her jokingly for being "no better than her mother", then said "So you think death is the final answer?" At first, it just sounds like him making another joke, but remember how often Phelous dies in his reviews, resurrects, and develops further as a character. Or maybe I just need to get some sleep. -Ometta 6
    • The review of Jacob's Ladder showed that indeed death -or at least accepting it- was the answer for Phelous to truly transcend his existence.

  • Fridge Horror: In his Cricket on the Hearth review, while complaining about how similar two characters look, Phelous offhandedly mentions that he thought they were supposed to be the same person the first time watching the movie. Wait a minute Phelous, you subjected yourself to this movie more than once?!
    • In-universe at the end of Secret of the Hunchback, when he realizes there's also a Dingo version.
    • In his (first and most famous) review of "Beauty and the Beast," the line the second brother says before he "winks out of existence." "Who was that? Who am I for that matter?" It seems like just another funny one-liner demonstrating how stupid Beauty's brothers are. But if a person winks out of all existance, that might mean they vanish from the entire timeline, and thus everyone else's memories. "Who was that?" marks when the second brother lost all memories of the first brother, only seconds after his vanishing. "Who am I for that matter?" was the beginning of the end of his own existence, as he began to fade from everyone's memories, including his own. All within seconds.
