Danger After Dark was an American film company founded in April 26, 2006, when their YouTube Channel was also founded. They primarily released horror movies around the world. Eventually, the company shut down in June 2017.

(April 26, 2006-May 18, 2013)


Logo: We see unreadable red text zooming in the screen while being center mirrored on a white background. It flips itself to reveal the company name (still having the reflection) & fades out. The company name appears again, but not being center mirrored, the company name is jittering & in black, & the background is flashing. We then see a red saw blade split the text in half, making the 2 fall. Finally, the saw blade & the company name appear before ending.

Variant: On numerous international trailers the company released, it's shortened where we start with the text jittering.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: A strange whoosh noise and a squeak noise. When the flashing begins, a very loud scream can be heard. Finally, a slice noise is heard.

Music/Sounds Variant: On the trailers, the opening theme plays and (often times) the original sounds have a lower volume.

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on their releases & international trailers.

Legacy: This has been noted to be extremely jarring to many because of the loud scream/jumpscare, the flashing, & the strange noises at the beginning. The trailer variant is obviously tamer due to the cut beginning, the lowered volume, & the theme of the movie (which is usually not that creepy), but the flashing is still there, so it ain't by a lot.
