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

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

I was not that scared of it either. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

6 VID Mask (1990-2002)

Now already at 4. - soulard

It is now at 4. - soulard

This mask is scary! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

7 Oz Film Company (1914)

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.

Why isn't this number one? For once a real person actually terrifies me. Don't even get me started on the close-up variant.

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

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

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

9 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

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

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

The Newcomers

? MTM Enterprises (St. Elsewhere Finale Variant)

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

The Contenders

11 DreamWorks "Shark Tale Moon" (2004)

How is this scary?

12 Big Ape Productions (1998-2001) Big Ape Productions (1998-2001)

The close up of the ape's face, why the people would think of that?

13 PFFR (2005)

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.

Yeah, I easily consider THIS one to be the scariest logo ever. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

14 Gorgon Video (1982)
15 Horror Factory (France)

The Kid in Bed scared it bejeezus out of me. I have nightmares of this even as an adult!

19 Neon Mickey (1978-1986)

32 DiC "Kid in Bed" (1987-2005)

This logo has scared me for years and it still does. I want to shoot that flying logo with a rifle

This one is confusing. Is it beautiful or is it scary. Well, the best way to describe this logo is that it looked boring. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

This logo is so loud it can blow your speakers up and r.i.p. headphone users
