I think the type can be improved. I think the mark is delicious.

Thanks for the comments everyone! Once I get a concept in my head and then go to execute it I usually end up realizing that it can be even more simple than I first anticipated.

Reminds me of Frogra's shocked logo but still very clever they can both co-exist.

Clever use of the reel, but it took reading the comments here to realize that the reel was supposed to be a face (it is, right?). Would it be possible to add something extra to make it more apparent?

@raja This is a fictional logo. The concept is up for sale at IncSpring though... %22shocking films%22 would work better for a real company. :0

Apart from the horrible typeface and the fact that it looks like it was designed in MsPaint... I got a cheap laugh out of this clever design

Thanks Roy and prwhitehead and Sean (I think :) )**@neveronyx: Glad you got a kick out of it. The font is Gotham light and it was designed in Adobe Illustrator. :) Please enlighten me as to why it looks like it was done in mspaint... :)

genius idea and wonderfully executed.**my only thought is that the icon doesn't make any sense without the title, so maybe the text could be slightly heavier?

bigjerk Jan. 23 '09

Really really clever concept, seems to be a bit of a disconnect between the type and icon though...excellent work, but with a bit more work it could be flawless.

I didn't see the mask at first. I saw a bowling ball. Granted, I'm not a horror movie fan, but even knowing the history of horror and the hockey mask (that is the connection, correct?), the connection took me more than a minute. **I love the simplicity of the type, it seems most production companies are going clean like that.

Thought this was very clever, I'm not sure that the face is entirely apparent as a film reel, it might be too much smiley and not enough depth. Maybe adding more detail to the film reel will help, just slight details though.

I think the reel could be seen in a few different ways and thats why it works so well. It could be the face of a ghost, it could be a mask, it could be a horrified expression, it could be someone so scared they went white with fright...and beyond all that, it definately looks like a film reel. :)

Dude this is so funny! I will admit I have a soft spot for logos that turn inanimate objects into faces (never been much good at it myself though). Love it! Keep up the good work.
