Closing Logo Group

Background: Avalanche Home Entertainment was a division of Lionsgate Films that distributed smaller Canadian B-movies and independent films.

(December 2, 1997-2001)[]

Logo: On a rippling crystal blue background, we see part of the letter "A" and a snow avalanche below it. The snow reveals the word "AVALANCHE" and is placed underneath the big "A". Then the snow disappears, and a bolt-like figure flashes in on top of the "A". The word "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" appears below under the line, and a byline saying "A DIVISION OF LIONS GATE FILMS CORP." There is a small LG lion standing near the byline.

FX/SFX: The rippling background, the avalanche, and the flash.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic horn tune ending in an orchestral hit, followed by an ethereal synth tune.

Availability: Uncommon. Appears on older VHS/DVDs like Romper Stomper (distributed with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment), Soulmates (distributed with A-Pix Entertainment), Raw Justice (distributed with Artisan Entertainment), Bolt, Subterfuge, The Twilight of the Golds (distributed with BMG Video), Nemesis 4 (distributed with Imperial Entertainment), The Outsider, Perfect Target, and Hostile Force (the first release to feature the logo), among others.
