Background: Horror Channel (formerly Zone Horror) is a British television channel that showcases films mostly in the horror genre. It broadcasts in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Italy.

Dead Angel
(December 2006)

ID: On a Christmas tree, we see a demonic Santa ornament with a evil grin, and red glowing eyes, laughing while holding a green cord. The camera then pans up to show dead Angel topper, strangled by a Christmas light cord and impaled on her head. The company's name, with "Horror" in a stylish font, fades in below the dead angel.

FX/SFX: 2D animation. It was made by a small animation team, two of them being Tom Burton and Dan Pastore.

Music/Sounds: A very eerie rendition of "Jingle Bells" with the horror piano snippet playing at the end. Laughs from the Demonic Santa are heard.

Availability: Extinct. This and others are only shown during Christmas in 2006.

Editor's Note: None.

Hung Santa
(December 2006)

ID: We see the legs of a Santa Ordainment, only to reveal that the ornament is hanging by a noose. Santa's face is also blue, and has his tongue sticking out. The camera then pans to the same demonic Santa Ordainment from the Dead Angel ID, laughing with his hands over his mouth. The same logo from the last ID then appears.

FX/SFX: Same as "Dead Angel"

Music/Sounds: Same as before.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

(December 2006)

ID: At night with a giant moon, we see a Silhouette of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, flying through the air, only to be shot, making his nose fall off, and leaving a blood stain on the moon. It's then revealed that the same Demonic Santa Ornament from the last two ID's, shot Rudolph, in a pink car with presents behind him. Rudolph's body then falls of, as the Demonic Santa catches Rudolph's now disembodied Red nose, and uses it as a car light. He then drives away, showing the now dead body of Rudolph, laying in a puddle of blood, as the company's name the appears.

FX/SFX: Same as the last two ID's.

Music/Sounds: Corresponding sound effects before playing the same music as before, with the piano being more dramatic.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

Santa's Grotto
(December 2006)


FX/SFX: Same as the last three ID's.

Music/Sounds: TBA.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: TBA

ID: In a red tint, we go through a Corridor with flickering lights. It keeps on passing through different sections of the Corridor, before it enters an elevator, which opens, and has the text "Horror" floating, which makes the glass break.

FX/SFX: Very good CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

ID: We see someone walking around a building while the background has a red-tinted effect. In the middle, we see the shadow of the person who happens to be holding a hook. After, we see the words "horror" appear in white.

FX/SFX: Same as Corridor.

Music/Sounds: Music that has the same nature as the previous ident.

Availability: Possibly extinct.

Editor's Note: None.

ID: As with the Corridor and Hook IDs, this is also red-tinted. We zoom out of approximately four ghost women. This results in someone falling out of a window and hitting the ground as "horror" appears in white.

FX/SFX: A combination of live-action (for the ghost women) and CGI (for the building).

Music/Sounds: Same as above, but now with creepy female voices and a scream at the end added.

Availability: Possibly extinct.

Editor's Note: The ghost women, scream at the end, and dark atmosphere will unsettle a few viewers.

(December 2011)

ID: In a Christmas decorated room, we see a silhouette of Santa with his bag of presents, tip-toeing to a black Christmas tree with red Christmas lights. He steps on a Christmas light, which then breaks. Santa then trips on the Christmas lights' cord, which electrocutes him, making blood appear on screen, as the scene flashes, showing Santa's Skeleton. The scene then transitions to the text "Horror" with broken ornaments, and a Christmas light around the text, as it flashes.

FX/SFX: 2D animation

Music/Sounds: A rendition of "Jingle Bells", which gets distorted when Santa trips on the Christmas Light's Cord.

Availability: Extinct, only shown during Christmas in 2011.

Editor's Note: The subject matter, dark colors, and music will get some, but seeing as it's not graphic unlike their Christmas ident from 2006, it shouldn't be nightmarish.

Demon Present
(December 2011)

ID: In an Attic, we see a Silhouette of a little girl, tossing a black present with a red ribbon. The girl then opens the present, as a Silhouette of a Jester with sharp teeth, claws, and a red tongue pop out of it, scaring the girl. The same logo from the last ID then appears.

FX/SFX: same as above.

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Same as Electrocuted Santa.

Editor's Note: The Demon Jester's sudden appearance, its laugh, and the little girls scream will get some.

Child Eating Tree
(December 2011)

ID: Outside, we see a Silhouette of a little boy, putting a red Christmas Ornament to a black tree. The tree then grows arms, and proceeds to pick up the boy, and eats him. The logo from the past two ID's then appears.

FX/SFX: Same as the last two ID's.

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Same as the last two ID's.

Editor's Note: The Christmas Tree eating the child, mixed with the dark colors, will get some. It might not affect others though.

Chainsaw Dinner
(December 2011)

ID: We see Silhouettes of a family, sitting at a table with a turkey. The grandma proceeds to grab a Chainsaw, and attempts to cut the turkey with it, scaring the other family members. The same logo from the last three ID's then appears.

FX/SFX: Same as the past three ID's

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Same as the past Three ID's

Editor's Note: While not as scary as the last three, the subject matter may get some.

ID: In a typical living room, we see a TV that turns on, showing static. We then zoom rapidly into the TV screen (a few glitches of a girl can be seen), only for it to reveal a red-tinted bathroom. The room is probably flooded, judging by the ripples. We then cut to another room, where a vase, two chairs, and a book are levitating. We then cut to a foggy outside setting, where plants and a doll can be seen. We then get a close-up of the doll burning, and then we cut to a dark environment where we can see male and female statues. The scene briefly glitches, and then we cut to a woman staring out of a curtain. Much like the Corridor ID, we see footage of someone walking in a building, but the building is not red-tinted. We then see a gold light revealing another room with a curtain, and after a while, we get a close-up of the curtain. We then see a bedroom with a girl, who then wakes up. At a slime-green setting, we see a curtain with someone falling. The text "horror" then appears in white.

FX/SFX: Live-action.

Music/Sounds: A creepy theme with sounds that correspond to the subject matter.

Availability: Probably extinct.

Editor's Note: The things going on, the dark mood, the sounds, and the unsettling music will scare many people.
