Creation of the Humanoids (1962) starring Don Megowan, Maxine Megan


Creation of the Humanoids is an enjoyable, short science fiction movie. It’s set in a post-nuclear war apocalypse. Humanity has all but driven itself to extermination. And, there’s not enough workers to do the necessary jobs. So, they’ve created a workforce of androids. But they’re so advanced, they’re nearly human. To the point of being able to intermarry with human beings! Which some people don’t like.

Capt. Kenneth Cragis: And *you*, you imposter, I’ll have your memory pulled so fast you’ll never forget it!

It’s an interesting story, dealing with the subject of racism in a subtle way.

  • The sets are minimalist, almost art nouveau style. Which works well for the story.

Editorial review of Creation of the Humanoids courtesy of

Creation of the Humanoids: Following a catastrophic nuclear war, mankind creates a race of blue-skinned androids to assist in the reconstruction of civilization. Disparagingly referred to as “Clickers,” the robots grow more intelligent and human-like. To stop their evolution and to preserve their own rule, a fanatical group called The Order of Flesh and Blood is created. Are the robots really man’s enemy or his last hope for survival? Featuring cinematography by Academy Award winner Hal Mohr, and makeup by famed artist Jack P. Pierce (Frankenstein, The Mummy), this philosophical science fiction drive-in classic was rumored to have been a favorite of pop artist Andy Warhol.
