Logo: On a black background, a hand smashes a pie plate against it, leaving behind frosting forming part of the Madman logo, which depicts a person grinning evilly in a straitjacket. A red cape is then thrown over the frosting, and it gets pulled away to reveal flames that form the straitjacket logo. Then, a hand comes in and snaps, turning the logo solid white on a shiny red circle. "MADMAN" appears below in a jagged Arial font before the entire thing disappears in a puff of purple/pink smoke.

FX/SFX: Various effects combined with live-action.

Music/Sounds: A drumroll is heard before an audience laughs. The audience is heard screaming as the Madman logo is formed in the flames. Finally, we hear the hand's fingers click as we hear applause, then a smoke sound.

  • The logo can be still on some trailers, with the name written to the right.
  • The short version has the logo formed and the last seconds playing.
Availability: Almost no chance outside the corresponding market, but appears on many DVDs in Australia. The still version is used on Australian trailers. A notable release with this logo is Animal Kingdom.

Scare Factor: Low to medium; the sound of the cape being pulled away can trigger goosebumps, but it's just a funny logo.
