Storyline

An alien is dispatched from a faraway galaxy to take over the Earth by "duplicating" humans and creating a race of zombies resembling animated pottery in this low-budget sci-fi film. Enjoy the opening and closing shots of the alien spacecraft resembling a Christmas tree bauble dancing in space, the faces of the "duplicated" humans shattering like a cheap vase when thrown to the floor, and the formative "duplicates" as they are cooked up in the lab in individual coffins. The alien's heart is softened by the persevering goodness of a beautiful blind woman, deeply conflicting his motives as the film plods to its "climactic" confrontation between the humans and their counterfeit duplicates.

This movie should not be duplicated
9 September 2003 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Richard Kiel really has to stop his testosterone injections. His mega bass voice still can't hide his acting skills or lack thereof.

This one definitely falls into scifi B movie genre, but comes off really really cheap. I guess that gives it its charm. C'mon, someone hooked them up with a lot of dummy mannequins! Also, if you think Kolos frog voice is bad, George Nader's floozy's accent will haunt you in your sleep. She seems really far from Brooklyn. George Nader plays your typical hero with one liners always ready. Whenever he gets hurt in the film, I hope you cheer as loud as I did. Lisa (RAWRRR!) is one of the hottest blind babes in B movie history; well except for Mrs. Ellis (What a fiend you are!) in "Tormented". Hugh sure was cranky during this one; I'm guessing 'Beaver' was ending and he used that for motivation.

"Ah, Beaver. How's Beaver? What about HUGH? No one EVER asks how Hugh is!!"

Watch this movie several times and is it just me, or is this one weird mamajama of a film? Also, Best Brains listed this as episode #420. 420, HMMMMMM????
