Nightmare Fuel: The Review Team
Because their just wasn't enough on the internet.
open/close all folders
During Z-Squared's Top Ten Most Hated Cartoon Characters list, Trixie is inducted and at one point, Collective Consciousness becomes her theme. Even a PMV occurs. It's may be a little cool but it can be downright FRIGHTNING.
There's list DEDICATED to what scared Z-Squared as a kid. Called Top Ten Scariest Nostalgic Characters, it must be watched to be decided if it's scary or just an ordinary list.
Hell, anytime that theme plays in any of the videos.
The 'Nosferatu' review takes a dark turn at the end. During the infamous scene from Spongebob that features the titular vampire, the screen then zooms in on the distorting image of Orlok smiling...and the laugh from Micheal Jackson's Thriller plays. The lights then flicker out.
The Space Stalin joke from the 'Aelita-Queen of Mars' review would have been funny...had it not been for the music....
In the review of 'Waxworks' (1924), we get the unexpected and soul-crushing return...of King Ghidorah.
Also, this set the stage for any bit of audio from Dante's Inferno being terrifying at the right time.
Do you wish to know about the reason Discordbecame evil? Well, say hello...to Nightmareus. Little is known about him now, but he's the creature that haunted Discord as a kid, caused Luna to break up with Discord, corrupt Discord while he was already in a state of dread, and it's also heavily implied that he was responsible for Nightmare Moon's appearance.
Guess what? He was. And apparently she and Nightmare Rarity are his daughters. Also the Alicorn Amulet was of his own creation.Starting to see a trend?
He also just HAD to make a video cameo in Sir's 'Phantom of the Opera' (1930) review. However, not only is said cameo frighting, but he could have something to do with Freddy Krueger!BALLS! His roar/scream doesn't help either.
Guess what? Necrosan returns yet again in the aptly named 'Necrosan's Revenge'. Now, he's gotten deadly serious when he plans to DESTROY LONDON if he doesn't get his revenge. However, the city is a fake. This shows that Necrosan really does have limits.
