1994-1996 Edit

Warning: Same as the 1978-2004 Warner Home Video warning.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the VHS of Trapped.

Scare Factor: Like most warnings in this format, low to medium.

1996-2001Edit

Warning: Almost the same as the 1978-2004 Warner Home Video Warning Screen, except the FBI text/logo and seal is removed, leaving just the white square, with the word "WARNING" "blinks" on and off. Then, three seconds later, the black warning text in a different font appears below "WARNING". Also the same as the 1982-1990 FHE/USA/Vidmark/IVE/Live/Avid/Trimark/Artisan/Lionsgate Warning Screen.

Variant: Some releases have the text in a different font.

FX/SFX: The word "WARNING" blinking and the text appearing.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the VHS of Red Ink.

Scare Factor: Medium, the silence and flashing word can scare some.

1997-2004 (Maverick eras) Edit

Warning: Same as the 1997-1999 and 1999-present Maverick Entertainment warning.

Variant: Two different variants were respectively introduced in 1997 and 1999.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Same as the last warning.

Scare Factor: Minimal for the 1997 variant and low for the 1999 variant.

2001-2004Edit

Warning: Same as the 1997, 1999-2007 Pioneer/Geneon Entertainment warning.

Variant: On later releases, the word "FBI" is bold while the warning text is altered.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: Off the charts. The whole thing feels cheap, looking like it was done in MS Paint in a few minutes, and "FBI" and the seal look cheaply pasted into the picture.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the VHS of Nikita Blues.

Scare Factor: Minimal. The awkward-looking "FBI" text may surprise some, especially those who were previously freaked out by the 4th Hanna-Barbera Home Video warning.
