1st Screen


Bumper: We see the words "This Film Has Been Modified From Its Original Version. It Has Been Formatted To Fit Your TV." on a black background.

FX/SFX: Just the simple fade in and fade out. DVDs that are in the full-screen format also use this format screen, yet they do not use the fade in and fade out.

Cheesy Factor: If VHS tapes had Spellcheck, we would most certainly use it on this format screen.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: On all New Line VHS tapes and some DVDs by New Line (notably Suburban Commando); oddly, even some widescreen VHS releases use this.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Screen


Bumper: TBA


Cheesy Factor: The text looks a little ugly.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on TV airings of New Line movies such as the BET airing of B.A.P.S. and the CBS airing of Elf.

Scare Factor: None to minimal.
