The producers of PARTS: THE CLONUS HORROR (1979) have filed suit against DreamWorks and Warner Bros. contending that THE ISLAND was based on their movie. Myrl A. Schreibman and Robert S. Fiveson are requesting unspecified damages and part of the proceeds from the film.
CLONUS is the story of a place called Clonus, where nothing occurs by chance and everyone will die by the horror of freezing to be used later for their body parts. It is the story of the accidental love affair of Richard and Lena, who are unwitting clones, not people, and of the doctors and guides and their lies and surveillance. But most of all, it is the story of Richard who uncovers the truth and plots his escape.
