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.

Never duplicated, thank goodness....
30 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A movie where aliens try to take over the world. Been there, seen that....

Wait, this one stars "Jaws" from the James Bond films, Beaver Cleaver's dad and some actress who name is actually credited as "Bambi".

Unique pedigree, at least.

Okay, here's the situation: "The Human Duplicators" is a film where an alien (Kiel) must destroy humanity and replace them with extremely fragile androids so his people may conquer Earth. If it were me, I would have just destroyed the world population outright but these guys look like they're waiting for some parts to come in.

Naturally, it's up to stalwart citizens like Nader and Faith to save the day and the planet, with a hefty assist from Beaumont (I expected Barbara Billingsley to come around the corner any second and tell him, "Now just hang loose, blood...."). The whole thing is a product of the early to mid-'60s, sure enough, and is the perfect movie to watch if you want a good, wholesome night of derisive laughter at other peoples' expense.

The movie ends on a semi-tragic note but you'll be crying already at the tragedy that you spent time out of your life to watch this mess. That is, if you go in expecting greatness.

Five stars for good intentions, plus one star more for seeing Kiel without the metal teeth for once. Oh, the "Human"ity!
