The MST3K version of 'Clonus'


An abridged version of 'Parts: The Clonus Horror' was shown on MST3K in 1997; it was one of the better latter season episodes.

No doubt about it, one of the best of the sci-fi era.

(sitting down indian style)Crow: "have some sun my little friend"

Mike: "I'm gonna do it, I'm gonna start a band called 'Air Supply'"

"I'm going to America" Tom: "today!"

Those references to "They're coming to America" are hilarious!!

Holy God, zump! You listed every great quote in the movie...and look how much space it took up! Clonus is still in my top ten favorite MST3000 episodes.

[Camera pans in on a white cake with blue waves on it]
Crow: Happy birthday, Jack Lord!

Mike: James Galway owns that porno theater!
Tom Servo: Come in and enjoy some "parn"!

[Biker shoots revolver at Richard's running clone]
Tom: OW! OW! OW! OW!

[Lina is given at lobotomy and left a blissful, mindless vegetable]

[Reporter and his wife are in their home and it's blown up by an explosive!]
Crow: I forgot about the cookies! Sorry!

Reporter's wife: He has an earing!
Crow: He's a "friend of Dorthy"!

reply

Richard clone: I'm from Clonus.
Reporter's wife: Oh, the Horror down the street!

Crow: "I don't think I like this America very much!"

And of course the best line, in my opinion: "Are you mad at me, clone-daddy?"

*Spoilers*

In order to fit into a two hour time slot with commercials and host segments on 'Mystery Science Theater 3000', 'Parts The Clonus Horror' was cut down to 70 to 74 minutes. The R rated version has the following scenes:
)After the George clone is "put to sleep", Dick Sargeant's character calls his superiors and tells them everything went well.
)There's some partial nudity during the sex scene with Richard and Lina's clones.
)Richard finds the George clone's frozen corpse in the basement.
)A guard in the basement attacks Richard clone and he subdues the guard.
)Richard has to crawl through a series of tunnels to get out of the Walker Industries Facility.
)The Walker/America faculty try to get answers out of Lina. When she refuses to talk, they torture her!
)Richard clone has a nightmare that Lina is given a lobotomy. This also happens in the "real" world. Also, during the nightmare, Richard clone can see the frozen corpses squirming.
)Rick and Richard clone drive past a Dr. Pepper truck.
)Jeff Knight and his co workers torture Richard Knight and his son, Rick.
They're killed and thrown into the swimming pool. A goon throws a clock radio into the pool!

The actress who plays Jack Noble's wife also appears in 'Psycho' as Sheriff Chambers' wife. Lurene Tuttle, I think.
)"Norman took a wife?"

You know, whenever I watch the MST3k version, I always think to myself, "This would be so much better if someone would just drive past a Dr. Pepper truck!"

I guess it is the best episode on the Volume 12 set.

One of my favorite lines, while watching the Clonus video and it shows that corpse or whatever, "And the food..."
