Also known as ''Parts:The Clonus Horror'', the futuristic story begins in the land of Clonus, a society of young, fit adults who seem endlessly happy. That is, until you see the armed guards that surround them. Everyone on Clonus dreams of being chosen to go to America, where the promise of an even happier, more fulfilling life awaits. These citizens are designated by tags on their ears, and when Richard (Tim Donnelly) and Lena (Paulette Breen) meet, they realize that their tags match. Despite the menacing looks they get from the guards, Richard and Lena become close and soon fall in love.

* ProductPlacement: Huffy Bikes, Adidas clothing, Dr. Pepper, and Old Milwaukee BeerBeer. Almost certainly coincidental, since the filmmakers obviously weren't being paid by the companies in question.

Director Robert S. Fiveson brought a copyright infringement suit against the makers of ''TheIsland'' (2005). The lawsuit cited 89 points of similarity between ''"Clonus"'' and ''"TheIsland"'', and the court ruled that Fiveson made a prima facie case for infringement. Before the case could go to trial, Creator/{{Dreamworks}} settled with the plaintiffs for an undisclosed amount. It's been rumored that it was a seven-figure sum.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The film was originally distributed as ''"Parts: The Clonus Horror"'' due to this. The DVD of this movie now uses the creator's original title of simply ''"Clonus"''.



** One interviewer asked why Robert S. Fiveson chose to have America be the "Elsewhere". The answer, exact words: "This was post-'60s fuck you-ism."

* {{Lobotomy}}: Described cheerfully (by the Clonus PR department) as a standard way to keep an uncooperative clone in line. At the end of the film, we see a lobotomized Lena with a blank smile.
