Background

Excalibur Benelux was a Dutch VHS company which was the successor to Vestron Video International in the Benelux territories. After Vestron Video International filed for bankruptcy in Belgium and The Netherlands, most of the company's unreleased products were sold to other companies. However, the crew behind Vestron Video International did not wait too long to continue releasing films. Under another name, of course: Excalibur. Several of their early releases had similar artwork to that of Vestron releases. Some even still had the Vestron Video International sticker as well! The company lasted until the mid-to-late 1990s.

(1989-1992)

Nickname: "The Sword of Excalibur"

Logo: On a purple gradient background, an outline of a sword twirls around and then "EXCALIBUR" fades in a la a particle effect, with the sword splitting the A in half. The text fades out and the sword rotates to the near bottom of the screen. Sometimes, text about previews appear on top and at the end, the logo animates in reverse.

FX/SFX: Simple animation.

Music/Sounds: A relaxing new age tune. When the logo appears at the end of various releases, no music is played.

Availability: Very rare. Can be found on releases from this company.

Editor's Note: None.
