Nicknames: "Strobe Light from Hell", "Eggs are Metrical", "SSL (Super Scary Lips)", "Klasky Csupo's Evil Twin", "The SSF's Distant Cousin", "Evil Lips", "These Lips Seem Symmetrical To Me", "Loose Lips Might Sink Ships...and Strobe Lights"
Logo: On a black background with lips we see the word "ASYMMETRICAL" stylized in a grey square like this:
four letters line-by-line. We then see a strobe light-like flash as it zooms in as the letters spark. Then, the lips then says "asymmetrical" which appear to blur out over time.
FX/SFX: The flash, zooming, and sparking.
Cheesy Factor: Very dated effects and extremely strange subject matter. The voice sounds more like it's saying "eggs are metrical" more than "asymmetrical", and the lips look poorly masked, like as if a bad chroma-key effect was used.
Music/Sounds: Loud, thunder-like hissing/sizzling noises and a droning synth trill followed by a robotic voice saying "asymmetrical" and the stock sound effect of electricity sparking. An eerie choir can be heard in the background too.
Availability: Only seen on the 3-part David Lynch miniseries Hotel Room.
Scare Factor: Nightmare. The flashing, jarring appearance, dark color scheme, scary music, "V of Doom"-like zoom effects, evil-sounding robot voice, bizarre subject matter and exploding can be extremely unsettling. Also, the strobing may cause people to have seizures. It's worsened by the fact that this follows the quiet Propaganda Films logo. The mouth/lips looks also creepy as they're blurred. Given that this is a David Lynch company, it's not too surprising. The next logo is much tamer and not as scary.
(February 21, 1997)
Logo: Basically, on a dark background we see this text:
A S Y M
M E T R
I C A L
stylized as the previous logo, but every letter is inside an orange square. The squares are at the right side of the screen, and on the left side we see the logo of Ciby 2000. Both logos are separated by a bar. Above the logos we see A and below we see PRODUCTION.
Availability: Seen only on Lost Highway.
Scare Factor: None. It's 100% tame, a refreshing change from the logo above, but it can be boring to some viewers.
