Logo: Many light streaks are seen in a tunnel. The camera flies through the lights and tunnel. As more light streaks appear, we come acrossa wall. The streaks them move at light speed. The lights then fade as two red boxes quickly shake back and forth. The boxes form a rectangle and a streak forms the word "REDBUS". The rectangle then compresses and "PICTURES" or "FILM DISTRIBUTION" fades in.

FX/SFX: The streaks.

Music/Sounds: A techno tune at the beginning with beeps and clicks.

Availability: Uncommon. Appears on An American Haunting, Ushpizin, and Tooth, among others.

Editor's Note
