The Human Duplicators


1h 20m 1965

Brief Synopsis

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.

Synopsis

Kolos, an agent from another world, is sent to Earth to create a colony of androids who will infiltrate the government and prepare for an invasion from Kolos' world. Kolos takes over the mansion of Professor Dornheimer, an electronics expert, and duplicates him and his staff with androids, sparing only the professor's blind niece, Lisa. The National Intelligence Agency assigns agent Glenn Martin to investigate thefts at research centers carried out by staff members--actually androids--who then disappeared. Martin's investigations lead him to the Dornheimer mansion where he is captured and duplicated. The android Martin is sent to throw the authorities off the trail but he arouses the suspicions of agent Gale Wilson. Although she catches him robbing a government electronics supply vault, he escapes. The android Dornheimer rebels against Kolos, who has fallen in love with Lisa, but Kolos overcomes his opponent. Meanwhile, Lisa helps the real Martin escape and, with the help of the real Dornheimer, Martin destroys the androids with a laser beam. Kolos prepares to return to his world with a report of his failure and the inadvisability of an invasion. After restoring Lisa's eyesight, he reveals that he will be destroyed when he returns home but explains that it doesn't matter because he has discovered that he, too, is an android.
