Avala

Logo: On a black background, we see a bordered pentagon, with the words "AVALA" and "FILM". Both words are sheared to the top. Below the pentagon there's a filmstrip with "BEOGRAD" on the center.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: Despite being a still logo, the music does not fit at all.

Music/Sounds: Mostly silent, but sometimes a two note, evil sounding brass fanfare is used.

Availability: Ultra rare. Seen on their films of the time.

Scare Factor: High to nightmare. Definitely the black background, weird logo design, scratchy B&W prints and dark music make a scary mix. It may vary for those who used to it.
