SCARED TO DEATH & SYNGENOR

SCARED TO DEATH

Alternate Titles:
Scared To Death: Syngenor / The Aberdeen Experiment

German Title:
Entsetzen - Dem Grauen auf der Spur

USA, 1981
Director: William Malone

5/10



Imagine an average slasher movie, but with a genetic cyborg instead of a masked killer - that's 'Scared To Death', a still relatively unknown b-movie which, on the one hand, is full of unbelievably awful actors and cheesy dialogue, but, on the other hand, got some wonderful atmosphere, a lot of suspense and a cool monster.
Overall a nice creature-feature.




SYNGENOR

Alternate Title:
Syngenor: Synthetic Genetic Organism

German Title:
Syngenor - Das synthetische Genexperiment

USA, 1990
Director: George Elanjian Jr.

3/10









This is neither a sequel, nor a remake, it's a stand-alone film.
Only difference: the genetic cyborgs here are the same as in 'Scared To Death'
- but unfortunately this does not help in improving the quality of this schlock.
It's dumb and laughably bad, full of dull actors, horrible dialogue and tacky effects. Thanks to David Gale, his hilarious performance makes it a bit more bearable.
