0811: Parts: The Clonus Horror

MST3k, Experiment #0811

Where science and nightmare merge. Parts: The Clonus Horror.

A young man escapes from a govenment run project called Clonus only to find out that Peter Graves a candidate for Presidency is a conspirator to keep Clonus a secret. Top government officials are aware of it and support the super secret project, because they are cloning themselves to live longer and better lives, at the expense of their clone counter-part, who is no more than a "slave" as far as human rights are concerned. The ethical and moral values are explored as the escapee known as Richard returns full circle back to Clonus, only to find his girlfriend lobotimized for government security purposes.

This is one of my favourites. I really think this is one of the most watchable movies they've ever riffed.

Full of Peter Graves impersonations, the riffing is quite fun on this one. I always love a good Peter Graves voice...

The best part of the episode is the host storyline. I love the interaction with the kids, and Mary Jo explaining the facts of life is hillarious!! Mike and the bots doing their educational show is great too. I like singing along with the little song.

Well, this is a must-have in the run of the show. I suggest you buy it if you don't already have it.


Favourite line: "It's fun when there are things!"
