Editorial Reviews

Norton Cyberdyne, a multinational corporation, produces high-tech military technology. Their latest super-weapon is the SYNGENOR (SYNthesized GENetic ORganism), a perfect super-soldier killing machine. Unfortunately, the prototype is loose and leaving a trail of bodies in a gruesome killing spree! As the bodies pile up, newly-spawned SYNGENORs emerge from the basement of the building and a battle rages between the mutants and the humans. The SYNGENORs must be stopped before they can escape the building and wreak havoc on the outside world! SYNGENOR features special visual effects from Robert and Dennis Skotak (visual effects creators for ALIENS and THE ABYSS) and horrific creature designs by William Malone (HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL).- Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1)

Format: VHS Tape
Syngenor was actually a much better film that I was expecting it to be. Syngenor, by the way, is short for Synthesized Genetic Organism. Norton Cyberdyne has designed the soldier of the future, a product of genetic engineering and plain old strong metal engineering, a creature designed specifically to fight in the deserts of the Middle East, a terrible force essentially indestructible. Unfortunately for all concerned, there is a power struggle taking place in the highest echelons of the company, and the plotters take the bold move of "accidentally" letting a Syngenor escape. When he kills the scientist who essentially created him (and quit before the prototype was really complete), the scientist's niece decides to seek justice on her own. The police won't investigate the murder, but she knows who and what is responsible. An annoying reporter looking for a good story joins forces with her, and their efforts lead us into the heart of Norton Cyberdyne. The president of the company, played by Davie Gale of Reanimator fame, is going quite insane under all the pressure. As things progress, more and more Syngenors are released to roam the building and basically just kill indiscriminately. These things are able to reproduce asexually ever twenty-four hours, so you've got Syngenors all over the place pretty quickly. There is a lot of action, as you can imagine, in the succeeding battles between man and Syngenor.
This movie is basically one of your better than average science fiction B-movies. It was great to see David Gale in action again, but his character actually becomes pretty annoying as his grip on reality quickly weakens. Gale goes well beyond the call of duty in terms of hamming it up.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Nowhere on the cover art will you see that this film is a sequel to the 1981 film Scared to Death. That's because the media company does not want you to know that is a sequel as people will be less likely to impulse buy if they read that it's a follow-up. Despite it being a sequel, Syngenor is easily viewed on its own.

Unlike the first film which had 1 Syngenor (SYNthesized GENetic ORganism) running amok, we now get many. It's a basic story of military creation turning on their creators. David Gale of Re-Animator makes a likeable over-the-top performance as the heavy in charge of the project (look for many tributes/nods to Re-Animator).

Synapses new Special Edition DVD does beat our Elite's old DVD as the transfer is much better. The special features are basically the same. In my opinion it's not really worth upgrading if you own the old disc but this is a fantastic buy.

Make sure to pick up Retro-media's DVD of Scared to Death while your at it!

Format: DVD
SYNGENOR concerns an evil corporation called Norton Cyberdyne that is secretly building synthetic beings to be used as super-soldiers in the coming middle-eastern world war. Shockingly, said beings are released so they can roam around the Cyberdyne building, tearing hapless victims to pieces. This is all done as part of a plot to drive the corporate head Carter Brown (David Gale himself!) bananas. It works. Brown loses his mind entirely, which causes him to grimace, laugh demonically, and to continually ask people to hold him. Gale is all ham, but at least he's good USDA choice ham! He's also the best thing about the movie. As for the monsters themselves, while not a total disgrace, they aren't all that menacing either. The costumes aren't bad, just not very scary or unsettling. Now, there is a scene at the end where one SYNGENOR has a fairly cool meltdown. Anyway, I'd watch this one again as it has it's goofy charms going for it. For extra points, watch for Melanie "Daughter Of The Shat" Shatner as Carter Brown's niece! Enjoy...

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Synthesized Genetic Organisms (Synegors) created by a corporate weapons manufacturer are set loose to dispose of anyone that stands between the company and its government contracts, and it is up to a reporter and the suspicious daughter of a murdered employee to stop them! SYNGENOR is a perfectly bad B-movie that serves as an entertaining companion piece to CHUD. It refuses to take itself seriously, downplaying its inherently weak plot while indulging in its creature FX and camp. David Gale hams it up as the deranged corporate head responsible for the chaos, becoming the unfortunate result of his own twisted experiments as he continues to inject himself with the Syngenor serum. The creatures are revealed far too soon, exposing them for the cheap rubber knock-offs of Giger's Alien designs that they truly are. Despite the often goofy plot and characters, the film does provide a few laughs and pockets of explosive gore that makes it an enjoyable guilty pleasure, but not one that can be openly recommended to all genre fans.

Format: DVD
A weapons corporation manufactures a genetic killing machine, that looks like Predator, but is called Syngenor. Carter Brown (David Gale) is the crazed paranoid man over the project who shoots himself in the neck with the proverbial fluorescent green radiator fluid because...he can. One night he lets loose the Syngenor to test it on live subjects and was surprised for some reason he didn't immediately return to its cage and goes on to kill its creator.

The Syngenor almost kills the niece (Starr Andreeff) whose front door can't be opened from the inside. You always have easy to open doors in case of fire, aliens or Syngenor. The rest of plot wasn't this tight. It was like an Asylum/ SyFy production.
