The Fall of Spongebob Squarepants: An Opinion From a Former Fan
Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Well, for a time, I did, alongside Spongebob and his cast of underwater weirdos — and dang, did I ever love being down there. I said before that for a time, I enjoyed watching Spongebob Squarepants, and I meant it — that show was one of the few 'new age' cartoons on Nickelodeon that I loved watching on TV when it first aired, because it was new, exciting, crazy, and most of all, funny.
Horror Movies: Is The "Horror" Factor Gone, or Just Adapting to a New Audience?
Years ago when The Exorcist came out, it was of course classified as a horror movie, and people enjoyed it. I think partly because not many movies featured a young girl becoming possessed by a demon.Moonlit Sky.
Stardust Megumi NYC Cosplay
Megumi Chan aka Stardust Megu as she is known in the cosplay community has been a staple in the New York cosplay community for seven years. Megumi has shown her support for the disabled in cosplay and advocate for positive body image. We at Art zeal met her 4 years ago, and have seen her different cosplays bloom over the years. The first time we were able to speak to her, was way back in 2014 at Central park cosplay day. Since then, Megumi has gone on to show the world her cosplays and support others on social media.Roc Rockerson
H'ween Horrorthon: A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
"Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream..."–The Chordettes Hello and welcome. Here's a question. Is "A Nightmare On Elm Street" a slasher movie, or a psychological horror film? I'd like to think its both. The late, great Wes Craven was truly on to something when he made this low-budget horror masterpiece. Sure, it was marketed as a teen slasher flick; disposable and forgettable. But, there's a master at work here. It's a deceptively brilliant film that does what it's supposed to do; Scare you, terrify you, horrify you - and do it through evil personified.Carlos Gonzalez
The Best ‘Stewart Lee: Content Provider’ Review of All Time
When I first saw Stewart Lee's Content Provider at De Montfort Hall, Leicester in February, I had the ill-conceived and frankly deranged idea in my head that I could review it. In fact, I was so confident in my abilities that I spoke to the artist himself after the show and proclaimed my over-ambitious intentions to his face. "You'll definitely be getting a five star review from me on my university-paper-website-thing called The Demon Online," I burbled like a blithering buffoon, signing the imaginary contract in blood which meant that I actually had to write something and preferably a gut-bustingly hilarious, self-referential masterpiece of a review that was fit for publication in a student magazine. However, when I was drafting my ideas for the piece, I began to doubt my abilities. "What if Stewart Lee actually reads it?" I thought, "What if I try to be funny... and it's just not funny?" So, to accommodate for these anxieties, my first attempt came across as if it was written by a pathetic, sycophantic fan (the reasons why still elude me). The embarrassing evidence is exhibited below:Marco Cardoni
A Few Good Movies
I love watching films, however sometimes, the day comes round where you just have nothing to watch! Therefore, in an effort to help people through this really real struggle, I have compiled a list of films that I love, and that may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you go to turn on the DVD player (do people even use those any more?).Theo Carter
Steven Universe: One of the Best Cartoons of the 2010's
Being born in 1991, I grew up on a lot of what many in my age group would consider to be 'classic' cartoons on Nickelodeon: Rugrats, Catdog, Angry Beavers, Invader Zim, Hey Arnold!, Rocko's Modern Life, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. Add onto those other classics, like Tiny Toon Adventures, Pinky and the Brain, and Animaniacs, and you have a good sense of the cartoons I grew up with.

Making the Case for 'Get Out' at the Academy Awards
Every year there is a movie that audiences and critics take to in a big way and that the Academy dismisses for whatever reason. Movies like Gone Girl, The Dark Knight, or 10 Cloverfield Lane that audiences and critics seem to believe in concert are among the best movies of their given year get ignored by the Academy for being too much of a genre piece, too much of an audience favorite or some other similar nonsense.Sean Patrick
Get Out: A Different Review
When I first saw the trailer for this film, what must have been several months ago, as the result of what I seem to recall was quite an insistent online marketing campaign, I was decidedly unimpressed. In the interest of full disclosure, I'm not a huge fan of horror films and, although Get Out's trailer presented at least a hint of something novel, the general impression I took away was one of the formulaic. It wasn't until just recently that I decided after all to give the film a chance, based upon the glowing reviews I'd seen across the web and the sense that this was more than just another horror centred around jump scares, gross outs, and a discordant soundtrack.Liam Bates
'The Belko Experiment'
Whoaaaaaa, look at me! Yet another review is up, and unlike the last one for It Comes At Night which I could have done without — this is a gem!Megan Davis
