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)

When I was 6 I was gonna watch the incredibles on DVD for the first time and then after the previews the thanks logo came up and It scared the living daylights out of me!

I don't know why, but it scared me as a kid. - RalphBob

It's funny that this is on here although it does make sense. Always gave me the chills. - ParasN2000

The audience is now deaf.

2 Klasky Csupo SSF (1998)

I remember seeing this at the end of a SpongeBob SquarePants episode

Okay, yeah, this one is REALLY scary. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

You guys haven't seen the 2003 version... Dear God, that ones bad.

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

How's this scary? - RalphBob

This doesn't scare me one bit. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

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 VID Mask (1990-2002)

This mask is scary! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Now already at 4. - soulard

It is now at 4. - soulard

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

This is not scary at all! - GumballWatterson

I was not that scared of it either. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

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.

7 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.

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

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

9 Stretch Films "Teeth" (1998)

It was at least INTENDED to be scary. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

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

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 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)

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

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.

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

33 3-G Home Video

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