The thrilling grindhouse clonesploitation classic that was itself cloned into Michael Bay’s The Island (2005), with ensuing lawsuit and all.  Where science and nightmare merge lies Clonus, an isolated compound where cloned humans are used as an organ farm for the American elite. But when one clone begins to question his existence, it triggers a deadly chain reaction that threatens to expose the secret facility and its nefarious program. Featuring Mission: Impossible’s Peter Graves as a president-elect with secrets to hide and legendary character actor Keenan Wynn as a journalist trying to put together the pieces of this complex political puzzle.

They duplicated one man too many. They had to find him. And kill him! When a top nuclear scientist uncovers a top secret experiment creating clones, he’ll struggle to prove that he’s himself and not his manufactured doppelgänger. It’s a high tech, totally bonkers paranoid thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat. The Clones – it may seem like science fiction… but it’s based on science fact.
