Monster Home Entertainment is the home video section of Monster Productions. They were founded in 1995, producing VHS and Betamax tapes. In 2001, the company distributed several VHS and Betamax tapes, including that of Monster Productions. In 2013, the company got purchased by Sony, putting the byline on their logo. On June 29, 2013, the company would extend the video/DVD catalog book for  the upcoming holidays, and for 2014. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment distributes the DVDs, and before it was 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment that distributed them. When the Sony contract was expected to expire on January 1, 2014, the company would revert back to TCFHE for rights, however another contract was made, extending the deal until July 2021. Monster didn't use a logo until 1996.

1st Logo

(1996)

TBA

2nd Logo 

(1996-2004)

Nicknames: The Outline

Logo: On a red background, we see a CGI object (which that of a monster), which comes up from the bottom left of the screen. Then it zooms out and a pen draws out the logo, forming the logo. It is of a monster, Then, "MONSTER HOME VIDEO Presents" or "THIS WAS A MONSTER HOME VIDEO Presentation" fades-in below.

Trivia: This logo is different from the actual 1997 Monster Productions logo, probably because they didn't make the design yet at that time.

FX/SFX: The CGI logo coming up from the bottom-left of the screen; the pencil drawing out the design and the text fading-in.

Cheesy Factor: The pencil being drawn out is actually live-action. CGI is also ahead for the time.

Music/Sounds: A 12-note uninspired synthesized piano tune.

Avalibilty: Common. This was seen on all videos from 1996-2004, except the ending logo is uncommon, only seen on two VHS tapes; Spud and Night Of The Living Killers.

Scare Factor: None.
