Movie Review: Cloned The Recreator Chronicles(MTI Home Video)
Three teenagers stumble upon a secret laboratory and encounter superior clones of them. Duplicates; Doubles; Recreations… Call them what you will, they are exact copies of Craig, Tracy and Derek, three friends on a camping trip who accidentally trigger a deadly experiment left by The Recreator, a mysterious scientist with a passion for cloning. Trapped by their captors, the teenagers are no match for their physically stronger, faster, better selves. Their only hope is to outwit them and to escape with their lives before they are replaced.
Unsure what I was in store for I eagerly watched this film with hopes it was better than what I had watched previously the week before,I was most happy.
Three friends going for a camping trip away from it all, come to an island and set their sites on staying there. Tracy needs to use the washroom and is told by her male counterparts to just use the woods.
She of course does not want to and instead feels that it is in her right to use the house up on the hill instead. She does in fact and then finding no-one home she invites them in as well they spend the night and then...
...the owners come back or wait is it even them at all? no these are their clones and they have the trio help them hide the bodies.
This is a very well crafted film and just when things are getting interesting as they are now going to bury the trio with the original couple along comes the trios clones to save the day.
The rest of the film is now lead by the three actors all playing their alter egos, boy do the clones ever have egos. But this film works for one reason as the director says in the interview below he hired one heck of a cast of actors for this film.
The split screen effect is used very well here and where so many of todays films get lost in all their special effects is was so nice to just see actors playing their parts and doing it well.
They even have some fun with it all, with some of the images below:
The scenes between the original characters and their clones are very well done as well, this is old school filmmaking at it's best in my books. They called it The Recreator Chronicles with the promise of making more stories and I am so looking forward to seeing more of this.
