Films: Scared to Death (1980)
Alias: SYNthesized GENetic ORganism
Location: Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Evil
Summary: Making a sharp-toothed death machine out of an attempt to make human life is like causing a nuclear explosion while trying to bake hot pockets. Basically, how do you do it?!
History: The result of a techno-organic experiment gone wrong, Syngenor was the new local menace of LA, California. Preferring to strike in the dark, this beast would take bystanders and harvest them for their spinal fluids, its main source of food.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: After getting shot up a bit, Syngenor stumbles into a hydraulic press, which is activated to kill it. There might be more of its breed out there, though...
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3.5-Syngenor boasts an intimidating design…when you can see him. Chances are, the moment you do, you'll already be dead.
Trivia: -There was an unofficial sequel released, simply known as "Syngenor". It had another killer cyborg, alongside a bunch of its siblings. Frankly, putting it here is a formality.
-This film was the first directorial effort of William Malone, who had a bit of monster experience with making Halloween masks at the time.
