Shout Out / The Necro Critic

Go To

Van Helsing

  • The "Burning Man Count" is Necro's own version of Spoony's "Fuse Box Count". This would go on to become a Running Gag.
  • When we're introduced to Friar Carl, Necro compares him to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force character of the same name, calling Van Helsing's Carl more annoying.
  • He calls the Dwergers an army of Jawas.
  • When the film points out that Anna can understand the Dwergers' language, Necro mentions how she "speaks enough Dink to understand them.

  • When Van Helsing transforms, Necro calls him a Were-Wolverine.

Spider-Man 3

Ehrgeiz Part 1

  • His end credit notes claim that the worst thing about the game is the lack of Fatalities.

Ehrgeiz Part 2



  • He introduces the cameo characters the same way Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back introduced Mark Hamill: With on-screen text stating "Hey Kids! It's 'X'. [applause]"
    • Appropriately enough, the first cameo he did this with was Mark Hamill himself.

  • While talking about Percival McLeach, he presents a made-up deleted scene, where the character is quoting Patton.
    "We're going to hold onto him by the nose and we're going to kick him in the ass. We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time, and we're going to go through him like crap through a goose!"

  • "GET ON WITH IT!!!"
  • While mocking the Council of Legendary figures, he asks why Jack Skellington isn't on the council. "Is he still on probabtion for the incident of '93?"
  • While talking about how horrifying Toy Santa looks, he asks how anyone can believe that it belongs anywhere outside of a Candle Cove Christmas Special.
  • Apparently, Principal Newman has the Penance Stare.
  • Him describing "Curtis the Special Needs Reindeer" as a reindeer that went full retard.
  • Him talking about how the entire fate of Christmas rests on liking it enough to put a ring on it.
  • His rant about the constant troll comments on his videos is delivered simlarly to The Grinch's rant about how "the avarice never ends".

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

  • Like the movie being reviewed, the episode itself is an It's a Wonderful Life parody.
  • Necro complains about Devil stealing the "Hey kids, it's 'X'" joke from the Sleepwalkers review, only for The Guide to point out that Necro originally stole the joke from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. He also attempts to point out Necro and Devil's uncanny resemblance to Jay and Silent Bob, but Necro interrupts him before he can finish.
