1st Logo (1999?-2000's)

Logo: We see an asteroid on a collision course as it aims for Earth and passes by the Sun and another planet. Once out of the shot, a set of DVDs fly in from various directions to obscure the view of Earth. 16 covers of various action/horror movies appear, which includes (as they form from top left to bottom right):

  • The Evil Dead
  • The Rock
  • Total Recall
  • Wishmaster
  • Hard to Kill
  • Mike Mendez' Killers
  • Mad Max
  • Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior
  • Demon Knight
  • From Dusk Till Dawn
  • Hard Boiled
  • Hard Boiled II
  • The Last Boy Scout
  • Con Air
  • The Crow
  • Dead Presidents

The asteroid is then revealed to destroy the wall of DVDs. After seeing all the DVD covers fly in, we zoom into Earth. Arriving there, we see an island with on top the Laser Paradise logo. After it a laser shines on it and destroys the Island. We then cut to seeing the logo in space.

Technique: Computer animation.

Music/Sounds: Synth music.

Availability: Seen on LaserDisc and possibly DVD releases from the company.

Legacy: This logo runs at 2 minutes and 13 seconds, making it one of the longest known home video logos in existence.

2nd Logo (2000's)

Logo: A CD flies in space to Earth. It then goes over an island into the water and spins fast. After it there is an explosion revealing the Laser Paradise logo.

Technique: Primitive computer animation.

Music/Sounds: Space ambience, the zooms and accelerating of the CD, an explosion sound, and glittering when the logo forms. Two dramatic science fiction drum beats are heard when the CD reaches Earth and then a synth note is held when the logo forms.

Availability: Seen on DVD releases from the company.

3rd Logo (2000s)

Logo: We enter a gate while lightning "strikes". Inside there is a cemetery and a small church. After opening the door, we enter a gateway while many posters become visible (which happens to have two posters being duplicated across the hall as well as a couple of posters of multiple releases distributed by this company under this brand). At the end there is a door that gets opened leaving the entrance to a small theater with candles. Then everything fades to black and we see the Laser Paradise logo, after which there is the text "präsentiert die" becoming visible and at the end blood is flowing through the curtain with the text "RED EDITION" appearing in the blood.

Technique: Low-budget CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: Thunder, laughing, opening doors, groaning and a large scream at the end. During the screams, we can also hear some maniacal laughter, which is sampled from the Vincent Price section in "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.

Availability: Seen on Braindead amongst others. It's a special edition Red DVD.

Legacy: This logo is infamous for its low-budget animation, stock sound effects, and the usage of Vincent Price's laugh.
