Timpson Films is a New Zealand horror film company founded by Ant Timpson in 2012.
First Logo (2012)Edit
Nicknames: "Timpson T", "Turning UA Spoof"
Logo: Starts off with the giant whitish "T" turning the same way as the UA "Turning UA" logo (1982-1987). Then a human flicks on a "T", falling it down to reveal "TIMSON FILMS" while the hand goes away. Dust from the crash can be seen.
FX/SFX: CGI on T, live action on hand.
Music/Sounds: A parody of the Turning UA logo's music which ends after the hand appears, using a heavy "ding" after it flicks the "T", making the crashing sound.
Availability: Only seen on The ABC's of Death.
Scare Factor: Low to medium, the hand knocking down the "T" might catch those off-guard.
Second Logo (2014-2015)Edit
Nicknames: "Standard Logo"
Logo: A bold TIMPSON on top of the thin FILMS. The former on top and the latter below the line. The logo zooms in a little.
FX/SFX: The logo zooming in.
Music/Sounds: The opening theme, or silence.
Availability: Seen on The ABC's of Death 2, and Deathgasm.
Scare Factor: None, it's just boring, but tamer than the follow up...
Third Logo (2015-Present)Edit
Nicknames: "Team Happy Rainbow Panda Bears' Cousin In The Film Industry", "Throw-Up Films", "The Most Disgusting Logo Ever", "The Reason Why I Didn't Watch The Greasy Strangler", "I Think I'm Gonna Be Sick!" "The Dead Man From Hell" "The Grossest Logo of 2015", "The Scariest Logo From The South Hemisphere", "The New Zealand National Scary Logo"
Logo: We see a dead naked man with a bulging belly lying on a satanic pentagram. One of his legs and hands are also cut off. Suddenly, his organs and blood start spewing out of his anus at a rapid pace , stylizing as "Timpson Films" in blood red. His leg also twitches at the end.
FX/SFX: The 2D animation, which isn't bad in quality, but...
Cheesy Factor: ...the concept for this logo is just nasty and horrific! You could also easily see his reproductive organs, which was OUTRAGEOUSLY NASTY!!! What kind of sick individual thought this was a good idea?! Many people consider that this is waaaay worse than/just as bad as the Team Happy Rainbow Panda Bears logo! At least it doesn't have a contradictory name for the company. What if kids were looking at random stuff and came across this?! We are mad at you, Wade Cowin and Ant Timpson.
Music/Sounds: A loud blood-splattering noise. If you listen closely, the man's belly (making a low grumbling/belching noise) can be heard throughout the logo. On the trailer's variant, the trailer's theme plays instead.
Availability: So far, seen on the trailer of Deathgasm (which has the 2nd logo in the film) and-The Greasy Strangler.
Scare Factor: Nightmare, possibly even off the scale. The sudden organ explosion, corpse, and satanic pentagram will no doubt scare a lot of people. It can quite possibly be the most scariest logo ever made (along with Horror Factory, 3-G Home Video, and others). Though this may be intentional considering the films that follow it. However, the scare factor is lower for those who are used to the logo or for those who don't find it as creepy as others would. But still, this logo would make many people puke.
