From the Back Cover

Norton Cyberdyne, a multinational corporation which produces military defense technology, has created a SYNthesized GENetic ORGganizsm - Syngenor. A "super soldier" The perfect killing machine. There's just one problem # a prototype creature has gotten loose and has begun a bloody killing spree. Paula Gorski (Riva Spier), a beautiful but undermining executive, decides to allow Syngenor to ree more terror. She sees this as an opportunity to let C.E.O. Carter Brown (David Gale) take the fall for the disaster. Meanwhile down in the basement of the building, a horde of newly spawned Syngenors has emerged. An ensuing battle rages against the creatures contained within the building.

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.

Third-rate monster film with a good cast. This is actually a semi-sequel to director William Malone's SCARED TO DEATH (1980), but Malone wisely decided against directing this, since it knocks most of the rules he set in the first film on its behind (Malone did design the monster suits, though, the main one worn by Kevin M. Connor). The film open with Norton Cyberdyne executive Stan Armbrewster (Charles 'Chip' Lucia; SOCIETY - 1989), bringing company executive Paula (Riva Spier; GHOSTKEEPER - 1980) and a bimbo and her boyfriend downstairs to celebrate something. A Syngenor (SYNthetic GENetic ORganism) is being held in captivity. It is an alien-like creature that were genetically produced to take the place of soldiers in battle. Since they are asexual, they reproduce every 24 hours. A Syngenor is accidentally let loose, so Paula tells Stan that no outsiders can leave alive, so we see a Syngenor kill the man and his topless bimbo girlfriend. It then gets loose in the city and heads to its creator, Ethan Valentine (Lewis Arquette; THE HORROR SHOW - 1989). It kills Lewis just as niece Susan Valentine (Starr Andreeff; AMITYVILLE: DOLLHOUSE - 1996) comes home and Susan throws a vase of flowers at it and the water in the vase hurts it (Unlike SCARED TO DEATH, where the monster roamed through the sewer tunnels). Norton Cyberdyne president Carter Brown (David Gale; THE BRAIN - 1987) is rapidly going crazy (nobody did crazy like the late David Gale) and keeps injecting some substance behind his ear (it is never explained, although the substance is a neon green, just like in a certain movie Gale starred in) and believes everyone in the company is out to get him (just because you're crazy doesn't mean it's not true).Read more ›

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!

Terrible. The case art was the best part of this DVD. This was a bad effort by uncle Jeb and his new camcorder. He did keep it on a tripod and didn't try to create yet another "lost footage" creep show. I give him credit for that. But he shouldn't have used acting school rejects who sound like they're reading the lines. And he should have schooled the guy in the creature suit to attack his victims by using more aggression than just sticking one arm out and having the poor unfortunate maiden to pull the arm in around her and yell AHHHH! Really. Stick to growing tomatoes, Jeb, and leave the B movie making to good ole Hollywood!
