Nicknames: "The Walls", "Bette Midler's Least Favorite Company"

Logo: On a background of two sets of moving purple lines, a bright flash appears and the word "MAGNUM", in light blue with a Persian blue stripe in the middle and in a slightly thinner "Frankfurter" font, zooms-in. Meanwhile, the word "Entertainment" in a shocking pink cursive font (with the bottom line of the first "E" extended out) zooms-out underneath "MAGNUM". The word "Entertainment" would later shine and shine again a second later.

Variant: On some tapes that had previews, the words "COMING SOON" would appear before the coming attraction.

FX/SFX: The words zooming, and the purple lines moving.

Music/Sounds: After some loud kettledrum beats, we hear a triumphant synthesized trumpet/accordion fanfare, slightly similar to the one used in King World's "Spotlights" and Camelot Entertainment Sales logos.

Availability: Rare. Found on VHS releases of Witchtrap, Nail Gun Massacre, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1980), The Hills Have Eyes (1977), Drive-In Massacre, Lucio Fulci's Zombie (a.k.a. Zombi 2), The Thorn (hence the nickname "Bette Midler's Least Favorite Company"), Mindfield, Night Terror, and Bad Taste, among others. Some Starmaker reissues of Magnum titles, such as The Hills Have Eyes, preserve this logo after the opening Starmaker logo.
