When the doctor is testing the robotic arm, the space directly under the table is covered (presumably by a box or a panel with a hidden actor). However as the robotic arm is removed from the table, the space beneath it becomes empty and transparent. See more »
When I perfected the "Thalamic Transplant" technique, these 'clickers' knew about it in a day and a half.
Capt. Kenneth Cragis:
But if you robots had the process, why did you risk using Raven? Why didn't you just do it yourself?
Acto, a clicker:
We tried. But the shock of dying, and being resurrected as a robot, was too severe: they Re-Died.

This was a movie I first saw when too young to appreciate fully. I seem to remember it "not" being strong enough material for the Saturday Night Creature Feature, so it was relegated to the secondary, late Sunday morning Sci-Fi/Horror slot. I don't think this movie makes anyone's top 10 list, but it's a goodie, even with scenery that makes Dr.Who look state of the art. Money just wasn't as lavishly thrown around in those days.
It's not glitzy and special effects aren't necessary to the story. The concept,however, is solid. It presents a near future(?) scenario where radiation is up and births are down. Man's creation, the humanoids, get more human with each upgrade. This is more than some "flesh and blood-ers" can take. They see the humanoids taking over for the superior "living" men. Man is dying out (gradually) and some of those left focus their hate and anger at the "clickers" (a derogatory term for humanoids). Humanity is eventually doomed or is it?
I guess you'll have to watch the movie to know for sure.....
