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.

Did You Know?


Phil Hardy, the British film scholar, calls the movie a "confused and over-ambitious offering from Grimaldi." He says that The Human Duplicators "marks the beginnings of a return to the technical gimmickry of the thirties. Thus, fittingly, it stars Kiel who became one of the more bizarre jokes in the later James Bond films, which were the ultimate in technological gadgetry." See more »

2 July 2006 | by vampi1960See all my reviews

the human duplicators was one of those b-movies that is so bad its good, i remember watching it as Elvira's Mistress of the dark movie of the week.and later on mst2k.a n alien ship that looks like a swag lamp beams down an alien(Richard Kiel)that forces scientist(George mac ready) to duplicate people.then he falls for the scientists pretty blind niece. the budget is low but this is an entertaining move nevertheless.George Nader(not Ralph)plays a g-agent is sent by his boss(Hugh Beaumont of leave it to beaver)to investigate the goings on.androids go amok. I'm giving this little screen gem 5 out of 10.kudos to Elvira for showing this on her program.Trekkie's take note Kiel beams down from his ship to earth,sound familiar???
