From a graphics designer point of view, I'd go with something more graphics oriented than just a font......a nice creepy background of some kind......The font looks cool, but gets lost in the background.......It needs something more....Just my opinion...

Please, any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Dont be afraid to be blunt.

I assume you mean the letters stay the same, but ceate more of a logo out of it than a neat looking string of letters?

No problem. They both equally suck balls! :D

No, seriously...I agree with jello boy. I am also a graphic designer, and if you are seriously planning on branding/merchandising...you would need something a lot more eye-catching and powerful. Not necesarily something too busy...but something that at least portrays a horror-related site better than this current logo.

i guess while im here

the lime green is a bit hard on the eyes which is why i went with gloom. i think the other th ingies are coolas shit too but what it boiled down to was which ones i could actually read

too much busy stuff going on in most of the cases. id say keep the background more simple and perhaps dress up some of the headings, banners and such. too much stuf on the background and i couldnt really read the type anymore!

Please, by all means jello, post or pm me any suggestions, or if you throw something together,feel free to show it off.

here is another one i put together. I really like the photo-negative skeleton thing...

Done a few quickies for ya Vod...with a Ring theme to them. I kept the same sort of colours as yours, with some different colours aswell. Say what you think of em, dont hesitate to say you dont like em ;)

I think my fave is the top one... it's more simple and less clutered than the others.

the second one .. the C is starting to look like an E a bit because of the positioning of the holes ..
so at first it looked like "Seared Yet ?"

yeah, looking at it now I see what you mean, no trouble to alter it though. They're just some examples, I like creating stuff like this and helping people out with ideas.

Vod,

I was just joking with my "overly blunt" comment. I wasn't trying to offend you (just so ya know). But anyway...I just threw something together as well. Nevermind the color scheme...that can be altered, but I usually always start off with black and blood red regarding these types of things.

Also, I think it is consice and simple enough to use on things other than the actual website.

That is very cool.... It would be great for a t-shirt or something along those lines, while i could still use one of the more "bumper-sticker" ones for the actual website... Very nice.

Hey, if i make any money off of it, what is your usual cut?

Regarding $$$...Don't worry 'bout it, bro. Just trying to help.

Word of advice though: The key to branding/merchandising is breeding familiarity. So, I would advise you to use the same logo/font/color scheme, etc. all across the board. Whichever logo you decide to use, should be used all of the time for everything.

Just my opinion.
