Background

Horror Factory Entertainment (also known as simply Horror Factory) is a small French company based in London founded by Philippe Bazelle, specializing in horror movies.



1st Logo (2015-)




Visuals: On a sepia background with particles flying everywhere (looks like the intro of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare), there is a figure in the distance. The camera slowly zooms into the figure as we see it is a skinless, goblin-looking humanoid zombie-like creature. The creature slowly raises its head, screaming before suddenly dropping down. A rectangle with a gray drawing of a screaming face with blood on its lower lip comes into distance, before the goblin-creature from before lunges up and screams at the viewer. As the creature goes back down, the white, bold text "HORROR FACTORY" appears stacked next to the rectangle, and the text "THE screamy FRENCH TOUCH" appears below the logo. Then the logo disappears after a few seconds.

Trivia: The template that was used for this logo is "Scary Cinematic Logo Reveal" by rad-FX on Videohive.

Variant: A teaser version shows the creature appearing again, this time only shushing.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Quiet heartbeats throughout the logo, some horror movie-cliched ominous whooshes along with a sound effect that sounds like rain at the beginning before the rectangle appears, a shriek from the creature (similar to Kate's scream from Slender: The Arrival, or a boy throwing a tantrum), a slam with the dropping sub-bass with the appearance of "THE", a woman screaming with the appearance of "screamy," another slam with the appearance of "FRENCH TOUCH," and the sound of a light switch when the logo disappears.

Availability: Seen on the clip of Je Derive and the pre-production video of Mords de Faim (Died of Hunger), Some Nights Before and Les Lunes d'Avant.

Legacy: When discovered, it has been labeled as one of the scariest logos of all time by the community, mostly because it contains a screamer jumpscare. However, this is considered intentional since the company specializes in horror.

2nd Logo (January 19, 2017-)


Visuals: In a corner of two stone brick walls (both with lights shining on them), the rectangle from before (except now wider with the rest of the face being shown), hung by a chain, drops down. It flashes a bit as tentacles emerge from its shadow (shown on both walls) and move around. The lights flicker. On the walls, as revealed by the lights, are (on the left wall) the number "5" written in tally marks, "THE SCREAMY FRENCH TOUCH" carved onto the wall, (on the right wall) "SCARY" written on the wall, the Anubis symbol (also known as the Illuminati symbol) written on the wall, "creepy" carved onto the wall, and "ARGHHHHHH!" carved onto the wall. The left light flickers and reveals the text:

HORROR

FACTORY

ENTERTAINMENT

next to the left shadow. The right light flickers until going out, while the left light stays on.

Trivia: The template that was used for this logo is "The Shadows Monster" by cyzer on Videohive.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The sequence starts off with the sound of the chain being dropped down (along with the sound of it jingling), then an ominous synth piano theme plays through the rest of the logo. This is accompanied with, in order, a maniacal laugh, a sound effect that sounds like a bunch of bugs moving, buzzing sounds for the lights, then a louder and quicker buzz, ending off with the same "woman screaming" sound effect from the previous logo. Here the theme also stops. We end off with the sound of a door closing.

Availability: It debuted on their YouTube channel. Strangely, it's not available anymore.

3rd Logo (January 26, 2018-)



Visuals: The sequence starts off with a red door flashing as a zombie girl (with her face covered and wearing a white dress) approaches the camera, which then flashes a window. The camera then zooms out to show a brick wall with another window and a graffiti reading "The screamy french touch". The girl then teleports, still trying to approach the camera, as an orange light flickers behind the wall. The girl then transforms into a black liquid as the rectangle from before appears, this time with the company's name below it, and the blood dripping extended.

Trivia: The template that was used for this logo is "Very Scary Cinematic Logo Intro" by 2ragon on Videohive.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Horror movie sounds and ambiances.

Availability: It debuted on their YouTube channel.

4th Logo (2010s?)


Visuals: In a dark room, there is a door with a light shining behind it at the right. A pair of feet is seen walking in front of the door, as the door then suddenly opens, not only revealing the person behind the door, which is a silhouette of a person with a fedora, stepping inside the room while at it, but also the aforementioned Horror Factory logo on the wall, just in a black and white monochromatic scheme. Smoke can also be seen coming out of the entrance, and the door slightly moves nearing the end.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: First, the sounds of footsteps behind the door. Then, the sound of the door rapidly opening, ending with the door creaking as the door moves.

Availability: Unknown.
