Syngenor (1990)

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.

Rating: 6/10.
Gore: 4/10.
Number of views: 1.

  1. Im always up for a little 80s cheese, this sounds fun. David Gale of Re-Animator and The Guyver fame assures an over the top performance, which is great in movies like these!

    Gonna put it on my list.
