Top Ten Scariest Logos

being a logo fan we all must agree there are some scary ones out there here is my list and follow

The Top Ten

1 THX (1983) THX (1983)

Used to scare me, now its NOSTALGIC

I had a bunch of VHS tapes that started with that logo when I was a kid. Being an aspie that hated loud noises, I covered my ears whenever it came on.

Today I told Mrs farly that I gave my simpsons season 5 DVD just because of that thing really

It truly scares the crap out of me.

2 Klasky Csupo SSF (1998)

Forget What I Said About The Scariest Logo of All Time

Oh no! Get out of my head! - LightningStrike

This is Also The Best Scary Logo of All Time

I Mean:Not The Best Scary Logo of All Time

3 Viacom "V of Doom" (1976-1986) Viacom

*Bruh Sound Effect #2* How is this scariest compared to ' Horror Factory and Team Happy Rainbow Panda Bears? - SonicFan91

How's this scary? - RalphBob

This doesn't scare me one bit. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 BND Face (1990-2002)

I watch the logo since I was young then I was like ahh when the circles all go round and round until that scary Russian face show up and that golden says BND which I am scared in my life like forever

Seems like something you would see on one of those "cursed videos".

Why not number one - TheKirbyCreeper999

The first time I saw this logo on a scariest logos list it scared me too death

5 Screen Gems "S from Hell" (1965-1974) Screen Gems

If you were scared of this, you're even afraid of even the cutest of logos... - SonicFan91

It looks like a bloody demon.

I used to not be afraid of this logo. Eric Siday did a pretty good job with the music. But after watching that stupid S from Hell documentary ( it was just the trailer but you get the idea), I was scared for life.

This is not scary at all! - GumballWatterson

6 VID Mask (1990-2002)

Don’t worry the mask in the frog one is pretty friendly

Now already at 4. - soulard

It is now at 4. - soulard

This mask is scary! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

7 Oz Film Company (1914)

Video's Granny

First ever scary logo and was made over a century ago.

I do not wanna read her thoughts ugh

Why only number 10? The only reason screem gems and viacom are higher is because the were discovered first and are extremely popular.

8 BBC "Streaks of Doom" (1990-1997) BBC

How the frick is this logo scary?

BBC...broke my knee...turtle pee - SavageLG

9 Paramount "Closet Killer" (1969-1975) Paramount

It doesn't scary for me

I hate this one!

How is that logo scary? I’m not scared of it. It’s just a logo zooming in with dramatic music. It would be a lot scarier if there were a jumpscare. ~VioletMoon

10 Stretch Films "Teeth" (1998)

What do you expect? It was Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Hi I’m Paul is scarier

It was at least INTENDED to be scary. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

The Newcomers

? Team Happy Rainbow Panda Bears

The Contenders

11 Horror Factory (France)

At least, I didn't watch this logo.

This logo is the WORST company logo I ever heard of. This logo begins with a sepia environment with particles flying everywhere (looks like the intro of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare), and there's a figure in the distance! As we zoom in, it is a skinless, goblin-looking humanoid creature. It lifts his head up screaming and drops down. And we see part of the logo with a disturbing grey-drawing of a screaming lip with a bloody lip!

But gets worse! When the logo is ready to be finished, the creature from before lungs up and screams at the viewer(s), and goes back down! Just seeing that is horrible and scary, and it makes us shriek in horror! Not it only creeps everyone out, but it is also abusing us!

After that, the white, bold text "HORROR FACTORY" appears stacked next to the rectangle, and the text "THE screamy French TOUCH" appears below the logo, what horrible cringe-worthy sounds, like a woman ...more - SuperMalechi

Damn that gave me the creeps

Its has a jumpscare... enough said

I first heard it on a we are number one meme. I was expecting a jumpscare so I put my volume at the lowest point. But of course it jumpscares you AT 1000000% VOLUME!

15 PFFR (2005)

What the frick did you just bring upon this cursed land - SonicFan91

What Doth Life

It's a long, hard dusty road, you'll journey on through a world you never known. Only time will tell you if or not if your life has been in vain. Each morning sunrise brings question and quiery and each sunset brings you more doubts. Always you're searching for what, you're not even sure, melting away like an icicle on fiiire. Ooh.

42 MTM Enterprises (St. Elsewhere Finale Variant)

Top 10 Saddest Anime Deaths - SonicFan91

ThIs Scary but thank god they didn't air the logo on reruns of the finale

One of, if not the darkest logo of all time. The logo potrays the MTM Mascot, Mimsie the Cat, lying down on a death bed right next to an IV bag and a heart monitor, the credits theme plays while the heart monitor is beeping, after the credits theme ends, the monitor flatlines, what makes this even sadder, is just days after the St. Elsewhere finale aired, Mimsie died for real. And on subsequent reruns of the episode, the logo is replaced with the standard St. Elsewhere MTM logo with Mimsie dressed up as a surgeon. - FasterThanSonic

43 Lyric Studios "Pond"
