1st Logo
(2000s-2010)

Nicknames: "Lightbulb Zapper", "The Insect Killer", "The Butterfly or Moth Killer", "Lightbulb of Death", "The Dark Life of a Lightbulb", "Shine's Cousin"

Logo: We see a lightbulb on the dark. We fade into more closer shots of it, as it starts lighting up. Then a butterfly-like bug (possibly a moth) flies to the lightbulb, and gets zapped by the lightbulb while it surrounds with swirling sparks as we see close-ups of the action. Later on, we see the same lightbulb with bloodmarks making the words "IMPACT PICTURES" on it. We gets a bit far from the lightbulb as it flashes brighter.

Variant: On international copies of Pandorum, the logo is on a space background.

FX/SFX: The animation.

Music/Sounds: Sounds of the action, mostly zapping and the lightbulb being touched, and a camera flash sound when the lightbulb flashes.

Availability: The full version was seen on and some international prints of movies, but its only appearance in North America was D.O.A. (2006). Doesn't appear on Resident Evil series, as the Davis-Impact logo appears there instead. The exception is Resident Evil: Extinction, but the closing version is only shown there. On Pandorum, the closing version shares the screen with Overture Films and Constantin Film logos.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(2010- )

Nicknames: "Eclipse"

Logo: The blue words "IMPACT" and "PICTURES:, separated by a crescent, slowly become visible. A spot of light moves through "IMPACT" to the left.

Variant: On Pompeii, it has the word "POMPEII" added below the logo.

FX/SFX: The light moving.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the movie, or silence.

Availability: Seen on Musketeers and Pompeii, and possibly will appear on newer movies. Don't expect to see it on Resident Evil movies (both Afterlife and Retribution), as the Davis-Impact logo appears there.

Scare Factor: Low.
