Replica (2005)

Yes, they let James Nguyen, the man who made Birdemic, film another movie. Somehow, he stretched stock footage out to sixty-six minutes this time to tell the story of Joe, a computer chip salesman who gets a new kidney from Dr. Evelyn Tyler, who he soon becomes obsessed with before she dies. Then, he meets her exact double.

If Birdemic is The Birds, this is Vertigo. Sure. Whatever you say, James.

There’s also cloning, which has the weird meta result of Evelyn’s clone becoming an actress and getting a role in Nguyen’s Julie and Jack.

Honestly, this is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen and I watch Jess Franco movies on twenty-four hour binges and have a shrine to Joe D’Amato in my basement.

Trust me, whether or not you like riffing on movies, there’s no way you’re getting out of this without help. I recommend the Rifftrax version on Tubi if you feel that you absolutely need to see the most insipid movie ever made about cloning.
