Trivia

The film also features Dudley Manlove, of "Plan 9 From Outer Space." See more »

Goofs

When the doctor is testing the robotic arm, the space directly under the table is covered (presumably by a box or a panel with a hidden actor). However as the robotic arm is removed from the table, the space beneath it becomes empty and transparent. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Raven: When I perfected the "Thalamic Transplant" technique, these 'clickers' knew about it in a day and a half.
Capt. Kenneth Cragis: [to Acto] But if you robots had the process, why did you risk using Raven? Why didn't you just do it yourself?
Acto, a clicker: We tried. But the shock of dying, and being resurrected as a robot, was too severe: they Re-Died.

Power To The Clickers
4 August 2002 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Even in the realm of the weird there is nothing else quite like "The

Creation Of The Hummaniods." Sure it's cheap, and it's got Dudley

Manlove(too small a role), but this dense, futuristic drama is miles

from Ed Wood and explored ideas (yes, "Blade Runner") that would be

judged profound coming out of a film with a budget.

The movie has about as many camera set-ups as "Rope"; but

a million times more story. Sure, it has unintentional humor, and

the most interesting thing about it; in the end, is it's an

unintentional exploration of boredom(hence, I think, the tie to Warhol).

It is moralistic, but avoids easy morality. Pax is a victim, but

also a seducer. Those who embrace the wave of robots are are hopeless as

those who attempt to enslave them.

This is a one of a kind film, and should be seen. Ten out of ten.
