4 BND Face (1990-2002)

Why not number one - TheKirbyCreeper999

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

Dispite me voting this, I'm not scared of this one at all, this is just that this is the one that scares most people. Also the BND mask in long behavior card day YouTube videos is the worst scary logo

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

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

This is not scary at all! - GumballWatterson

I was not that scared of it either. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Now already at 4. - soulard

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

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

8 Oz Film Company (1914)

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

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.

Is this violin tune the only thing you hear in HELL?

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

9 Paramount "Closet Killer" (1969-1975)

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

It was at least INTENDED to be scary. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
