Syngenor is a 1990 B horror/science fiction movie that was a sequel to the 1980 film Scared to Death. The film was directed by George Elanjian Jr and written by Michael Carmody and Brent V. Friedman. It features David Gale, who also appeared in Re-Animator, as Carter Brown, and Kathryn Noble, who starred in The Delos Adventure, as a secretary.
Norton Cyberdyne provides high-tech military technology and their latest super weapon is "Syngenor" (SYNthesized GENetic ORganism). A prototype breaks loose and starts leaving a trail of bodies. As bodies pile up other Syngenors emerge from the basement and a battle rages between the monsters and the corporate humans.
Producer Jack F. Murphy saw the original Scared to Death and was so impressed with the monster that he wanted to make another film utilizing the same monster design. However since the first film was so a low-budget and rarely seen he wanted to distance this sequel from it in order not to alienate a new potential audience that never heard of the first film. This is why there is no character or plot carry-over from "Scared to Death" other than the monster. "Scared to Death" director William Malone was asked and was originally going to this direct this sequel. He ended up passing on the project however as he had an opportunity to direct Creature[disambiguation needed] which was a higher budgeted film. Malone however still helped out with building the monster suits.
