Storyline

Scientist (Forster) submits to an experiment in cloning conducted by his former professor (Ray Milland). The operation is a success - except in terms of Forster's personal life. It seems that the researcher's wife (Adrienne Barbeau) finds the clone to be more desirable than the original. The clone is however not what she thinks. Written by Ørnås

creepy cloning movie
29 April 2003 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

This movie is actually kind of creepy. Scientists mess around with some cloning experiments and of course get more than they bargained for. Somewhat reminded me of the original Frankenstein movie when the clone is learning and being educated at very excellerated pace. Does a clone have the ability to feel human emotion or is his he merely a mechanized copy of the original? Some ethical issues explored. Interesting subject matter that was ahead of it's time.
