Namesake Entertainment is a film production company run by Joe Goodman. Namesake specializes in horror and thriller films with a strong religious theme (many of which are based on existing books). A bulk of their films were co-financed by Christian cable network Total Living Network and distributed by 20th Century Fox for limited theatrical releases (most of which being part of the short-lived Fox Faith program). The company is currently dormant, with no news surfacing since the release of its last film in 2008.

1st Logo (October 31, 2000)

Visuals: There is a silhouette of a kid walking on a path that splits in 2 directions, as a silhouette of a father fades in. They then both walk to the right side, where the sunset is, whilst a thunderstorm occurs on the left side. The screen then zooms out as the image of the father and son walking on the path is adjusted a bit and


appears at the bottom, with a line sandwiched between the text.

Technique: Traditional animation.

Audio: The opening theme of the movie; and a dark bang is heard as well, whether or not it's part of the opening theme.

Availability: Seen on Left Behind: The Movie.

2nd Logo (2003-2006)

Visuals: The company's name fade in and zoom out with a water reflection below, and a thick wavy line in a blue box with the father and son. The reflection then becomes a line and "ENTERTAINMENT" is seen below.

Variant: A flat rendition of the end product is used on trailers.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A calm, yet suspenseful tune.

Availability: Seen on The Visitation. Also seen on trailers of Thr3e and Hangman's Curse.

3rd Logo (November 7, 2008)

Visuals: There are the metallic letters of "NAMESAKE" zooming out one-by-one, from "E" to "N", before being transported to a red cloud background. A line draws underneath it along with a thick wavy line at the top, as the same father and son from the previous logos fade in, along with a red-white gradient box appearing behind it. Another line is seen on top of the square. Then, "ENTERTAINMENT" appears underneath the thin line as the screen flashes a few times from the thunder.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: An eerie, suspenseful orchestra.

Availability: Seen on House.
