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)

It truly scares the crap out of me.

In my high school media class, today we were analysing aliens, and the teacher then put the volume to 100%, I have tinnitus by the way, and he clicked play (jeez the menu was already creepy) then:...aaaooeAEEEeeeh! One of my classmates then shouted "THANKS a lot GEORGE LUCAS" as we all covered all ears. seriously it was that loud. The class next door asked us to turn it down because it was shaking her whiteboard. This logo also appeared when I was playing star wars a new hope on my computer, I accidentally hit play while I was doing a google search, SMASH AEH!

It does scared me a lot sometimes

I don't know why I grew up with this suspense - LightningStrike

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)

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 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

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

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

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 Contenders

11 DreamWorks "Shark Tale Moon" (2004)

How is this scary?

12 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

13 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!

22 Zombastic Productions (2001)
23 DiC "Kid in Bed" (1987-2005)

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

49 Fox Reality Original (2005-2010)

Why isn't this #1? - PerfectImpulseX

50 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
