    Im assuming you want honest opinions here and this is just mine and i dont mean alot to anyone so take this with a grain of salt. If this is for a haunted house then to be brutally honest its not scary it looks kinda Kiddish....

    You want real criticism? Right? My first impression of it was - Do I really need a haircut from a doctor in China? or maybe a chinese doctor? lol j/k but seriously, just like tater said if its for a haunt, I feel its not scary enough as well. I'm sure some people on here can throw ideas at ya, to get ya a better looking logo. Just my 2 cents, please take with a grain of salt as well.

    I will offer the dissenting opinion that the horror in it sneaks up on you innocently, the hint of blood on the mirror, the bloodlust in the eyes. VERY subtle.

    I went the simplistic route myself, my avatar is my logo, a line drawing of a horse and logo. In an age where every kid can see gorgeous rendered fantasy creatures in any TV commercial and home game the hand drawn and subtle logo actually DOES stand out and makes you remember more. (just got my trademark registration after 2 years of it, YEAH!)

    Run with it, David. When you have a world that feels that super decorated highly expensive Hollywood wannabes will equal sucess, don't forget the girls will probably scream the loudest from threads hanging down, and the little ones will get their biggest smiles from the toy spiders as souveniers for having survived.

    Least that is my own opinion

    Hmmm...

    Well I would have to agree that its not very scary. But it really just depends on what you're going for really. To each their own.

    If you're trying to be a scary haunt I would try something different.

    I agree with Larry, if you are trying to be a scary haunt, I would try something else. Maybe cut off the character and try going the route of just the tools/torture implements? Perhaps on a tray? Maybe on a darker background? Add the saw blade to the tools pile?

    If your heart is set on keeping the doctor (I do like the touch with the saw blade instead of a mirror), maybe make him less cartoonish.

    I like the tag line, maybe instead of a doctor you can have a girl with wide eyes whose mouth is covered by a hand or something?

    There's my two cents.

    In my Art Director mode; get rid of the kiddie looking font, find a san serif font that has a fractured look. Replace the cartoon with a real person in a similar costume.

    I like this idea a lot. And with my honest opinion, like everyone else said, it is kiddish, and the logo probably wouldn't entice your typical teenage couple to go to it.

    Depending on what your objectives are this logo may work and may not.

    One the owner of the attractions knows what their market so who knows.
