VHS Companies From the 80's 237 VADI-MON

Nicknames: "Jazzy Eyes", "The Outer Space"

Logo: On a space galaxy background, a pair of disembodied, dark eyes open and look straight at us. This cuts to a shot of Saturn's rings, which in turn segues into a wide shot of the planet itself. This cuts to a shot of other shadowy planets and moons (including Saturn), which fades into a slightly different space background than before. Then the VADI-MON logo (which are three stripes, one red, one green, one blue with a cream outline and the middle part squashed into one line with "VADI" on top and "MON" on bottom, both in bubbly letters and in cream color) appears out of nowhere, zooms in and then moves up as it is close to the screen. The background then fades to black.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Cheesy Factor: Perhaps the cheesiest logo of all time, besides the Kanaal 2 startup logo. NOTHING was done correctly! Everything looks very cheap and old, and it's quite obvious the VADI-MON logo at the end is just someone holding it in front of a simple colored background (a green screen) using chroma-key effects, especially when the logo is flying up off centered, to the left, moving it closer to the camera and then lifting it up. In addition, if you look closely, when the eyes open, the pupils cut to a slightly different place. Also, the fade-out from the planets to the last space background is off-centered as well. Lastly, the logo itself is too bright, making it even more obvious that it's chroma-keyed (albeit poorly). It's as if the logo's designers were on a severe time constraint to make this, or if they were on a barrel-load of acid before making it.

Music/Sounds: A low-budget, yet oddly soothing smooth-jazz ditty done on a organ synthesizer and a saxophone.

Music/Sounds Variant: There is a voiceover on some tapes like the 1982 movie Depravacion.

Availability: Extremely rare. Apparently, this was seen on VHS prints of Spanish religious and pornographic films, including Hola, Señor Dios. It was used on Luto Riguroso, El Invernadero, and Regreso del Mas Alla as well. Pictures of these Vadi-Mon VHS tapes (mostly their covers) have been seen on the Internet.

Scare Factor: Minimal to low. The eyes at the beginning may frighten some, and the creepy, somber music can really catch you off-guard.
