Background

New World Video was one of the many divisions of New World Pictures, by then no longer owned by B-movie legend Roger Corman. In January 1990, after parent company New World Entertainment filed for bankruptcy and purchased by investor Ronald Perelman, the video assets were sold to Trans Atlantic Entertainment, a company formed by New World's former co-chairmen.

(1984-1989)

Nickname: “The Sphere”

Logo: Same as the movie logo, but the word "VIDEO" replaces "PICTURES."

Variant: There is also a short version of this logo, which can be seen at the end of their VHS releases.

FX/SFX: Same as the movie logo.

Music/Sounds: Varies like its parent logo.

Availability: Common. On VHS releases of New World films, such as Fraternity Vacation, Godzilla 1985, Night Shift, Zombie Nightmare, Return of the Killer Tomatoes, and Hellraiser, among others. It surprisingly popped up on a 1991 Starmaker VHS reissue of Jamaica Inn with Jane Seymour as well as the Starmaker VHS of Transformations (1988). This usually plasters over the New World Pictures logo on VHS releases of New World films. Also appears on Canadian Malo tapes of films such as Keeping Track and Nightmare at Noon among others. Some Malo tapes which have this logo on the box may actually have the Malofilm logo on the actual tape. Such examples include Something About Love and White Force. Also appears on boxes for New World Television tapes released in Canada by Malofilm, such as Checkered Flag and Little White Lies.

Scare Factor: Same as the movie logo.
