A Great Youtuber that is only getting better
17 March 2018 | by supermichaeljensenSee all my reviews

Phelous started out mostly doing reviews on horror movies and would usually parody other critics. But as time went on, it got to the point that he became just like the other critics he was making fun of. It wasn't until he left Channel Awesome and started talking about things other than horror movies that he started becoming one of my favs.

Phelous started talking about things he was clearly very passionate about, such as TMNT, The Real Ghostbusters and Transformers G1. And also he would start reviewing animated knockoffs. I think the thing I like most about Phelous is how in depth he would get with his newer reviews. I love hearing about the backstory of things like Dingo Pictures and Goodtimes. His Crossover reviews with the Cinema Snob and Obscurus Lupa are probably my favorite of his videos

Check him out sometime, it's worth it. Specific recommendations would be His Crossover Review on Puss 'n' Boots His review on Lion and The King And His Review on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
