Logo descriptions and captures by V of Doom and Eric S.

Background: Paragon Video Productions (originally known as "King of Video") was a VHS distributor located in Las Vegas, Nevada. They released genre VHS from late 1981 until 1985, making them one of the earliest companies in the home rental market of genre films.
Not to be confused with Paragon Entertainment Corporation, a Canadian TV company.

(Early 1981)

Note: Not to be confused with King of Video Australia or the other American label of the same name.

Nickname: "Star Trail"

Logo: On a black space background with white stars zooming towards us for six seconds, a gold colored "King of Video" text zooms-in with a trail behind it.

Variant: A version with "PRESENTS" appearing has been seen.

FX/SFX: The logo and background zooming in.

Cheesy Factor: Simple animation, plus the space background looks fake. And what’s with the trail following behind the logo? Also, the word "Presents" on the variant is cheaply inserted!

Music/Sounds: A cheesy hip-hop jingle after three seconds of silence.

Availability: Ultra rare.

Scare Factor: Low. The music and the animation may creep some out.

Nickname: “Star Trail II”, "Constantly Background",

Logo: Same as the King of Video logo, except a gold colored “
PARAGON VIDEO PRODUCTIONS” with an outlined star next to the “V” in “Video Productions” (where the letters are much smaller than the “V” and “Paragon”), zooms-in in the place of the King of Video logo with a trail behind it.

Variant: A version with "PRESENTS" appearing has been seen, just under the "deo produ".

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Same as the King of Video logo, except the background
animation loops constantly. Constantly means, over, and over again.

Music/Sounds: An overly-bombastic orchestral fanfare, which sounds like it could’ve been done in the 1930's.

Availability: Ultra rare. Seen on American Nitro, along with other B-movies from the era.

Scare Factor: Medium. The music, the background, and the trail animation might scare some.
