What Good Independent Sci Fi Should Be
30 November 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Many people don't know that this was shot in 18 days with over 60 different locations. Not to mention, this movie was made for less than $250,000! For 1972, it was almost impossible to make a movie this good for that low a budget. Even if it is considered not the best science fiction movie ever made, Clones did break box office records that year nationally. The movie does have its moments where you can tell they were rushed for time and had very little money to spend. Still, the overall production and business of the film was a giant success. An interesting note, the movie is credited for having two directors when in fact, there was only one director on the production. The other name was added for "investing" reasons.
