You’d think they’d be slipping and sliding all over the place. Gamera977 Hmmmm, you think it might be more effective to throw salt on the monster than shooting at it… The Rev. What is this thing? It kind of looks like the Syngenor, but I don’t think that’s what it is since I don’t recall Syngenor having human-looking eyes or all those tubes. bgbear_rogerh he’s sugar coated Ericb A Krispy Kreme [tm] monster? bgbear_rogerh Sugar-Frosted Monstrosities are part of this nutritious breakfast Rock Baker The SYNGENOR suit was built from left-overs of a film called SCARED TO DEATH, so I guess this is a shot from the earlier appearance. As far as I know, SYNGENOR was seen by more people (I know I saw it once), mostly on video. Speaking of, there’s a film with lunacy galore. A future review subject?

At least we still had Rambo. D The Syngenor, a great monster design that first appeared in the most god-awful, boring movie I have seen. Yes, Scared to Death is that bad. zombiewhacker Worse than Santa Meets The Ice Cream Bunny?
