Clones are raised on a college campus to be prepped for freezing and organ harvesting for VIPs until one escapes and spreads the news. Meanwhile, on the SOL, Mike tries growing a mustache and the Bots are supportive, at first. Down on the camping planet, Pearl and her followers are approached by Buddy, Scooter and Doreen, a trio of omnipotent Space Children who've run away from home. Forced into babysitting as opposed to being forced to beat themselves up, Observer and Bobo try to distract the kids with junk food and other such vices until Pearl pleas for Mike's help. Mike's help comes in the form of an educational program brought to us by "A" and "3," which mesmerizes the kids until the fun escalates into a full blown Spanish fiesta. Still bored, the kids decide to ask "the Big Question" because they apparently don't get the Spice Channel at home.

Clone... Us?!
2 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cloning. One of those hot button topics that sometimes crops up during political debates... nowadays. Back in '79, when this film was made, it was only a sci-fi idea. It's amazing the difference thirty-some years can make, isn't it? In PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR (AKA: THE CLONUS HORROR), we're introduced to a seemingly idyllic life. On a remote campus, everybody's beautiful and blissfully happy. However, despite living in this Utopia, Richard has grown disenfranchised. He knows there's something more out there. But he's not getting any answers from the teachers, coaches, and guides. Upon learning the shocking truth, that he's living in a clone colony, Richard escapes with the evidence. Now, he's being hunted down by CLONUS scientists, security guards, and politicians in a race to silence him. Though the title is somewhat misleading (there's no HORROR to speak of), the concept is terrifying: That we all could be cloned for the sole purpose of harvesting our organs. Performances, on the whole, are excellent. Peter Graves is only in three scenes, though. Also as an interesting side note: THE ISLAND (starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson) seemed so similar to this film that fans began to protest. And since then, the makers of CLONUS received compensation.
