The serial killer is usually noticed after 2 or 3 minutes into the video. So when does he first appear? And how many times is he in the 12 minute bit?
Notes Before We Begin:
You need to watch ‘Too Many Cooks’ to know what the hell is going on.
A hard cut between character credits counts as a separate appearance. Something where he’s changed kill targets or activities.
He first can be seen at :21 seconds. Takes a good eye. I caught it the fourth time through when counting.
He doesn’t make his first kill until his eleventh appearance!
His 16th appearance is the chase scene at 4:45 where climbs out from under the bed while the sequence is paused. This is the chase scene. It only counts as one appearance because he is doing the same thing (chasing the girl) for this scene.
21st appearance he takes over the show. He’s on-screen 5 different times inside this section.
- Standing in the bedroom
- Peeking in the window
- Topless in the bedroom
- Getting a foot out of the oven
- Having some guests for dinner (GET IT!?)
27th appearance is where his head is on the space ship firing LAZER BEEMZ!
He makes 20 separate appearances ending with being the ‘dad’ at the center of the final family photo.
There are 24 appearances if you include the 4 times with just machete chops and the one where a body is being dragged off the screen. 29 if you separate the appearances when he has taken over the show.
