Looking for SF Movies which Feature Post-apocalypse, Androids and Consciousness Transfer
Anyone who has been a long time sci-fi fan, I am looking for the title or source for a short movie perhaps one of the Dark Gallery or Twighlight Zone series that showed a post nuclear apocalyptic world where to survive extreme radiation conditions, everyone had transferred their consciousness to androids. It was a very stylish production for its time. Perhaps late 70's.
I would appreciate any feedback.
Also there was a very sophisticated anime shown on our commercial channel nine of a ghost girl fighting the forces of evil in a very magical universe. I'm sorry to be so imprecise but it was a long time ago and I was a child. Both productions have stuck in my mind all these years and I would love to get hold of them if possible.
From SF Movie Explorers:
Here are a few suggestions that might fit the description of the movie you mentioned in the first half of you message. They are full length movies, though. (Several Twilight Zone episodes deal with post-apocalypse, but, those we found didn’t have any androids or transfer of consciousness in them. We are not familiar with the Dark Gallery. Sorry.)
The Creation of the Humanoids (1962) – It is a post-apocalypse story where androids try to rebuild humankind.
Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future (1985) – A television network reporter Edison Carter investigated corruption in a post-apocalyptic world ruled by TV networks. This is a television movie the Max Headroom series was based on. In this movie Edison Carter's personality is transferred to computer simulation not android, but it is worth checking out.
Futureworld (1976) – In the sequel of Westworld, two journalists discover a conspiracy behind the walls of an amusement park. It is not set in a post-apocalyptic world, but in it people do get turned into androids. We know it's a long shot but still…
Considering the second part of your letter, I'm afraid we are not much of a help when it comes to fantasy worlds. When someone mentions Anime and Ghost in same sentence, being more into science fiction than fantasy, the first thing that pops into our minds is Ghost in the Shell. :)
