Review – Demon Seed

Ick. A computer – actually more of a giant artificial brain – develops a fascination with the estranged wife (Julie Christie) of its creator (Fritz Weaver). Fascination turns to obsession once the machine decides that he wants her to carry its baby. So the poor woman ends up imprisoned in her own gadget-controlled mansion, tormented by her husband’s insane creation until she agrees to submit to its will. This is a 1977’s-eye-view of the conflict between technology and humanity rendered unpalatable by relentless abuse – much of it sexual – of a female victim. On the other hand, the old computer stuff – such as the giant floppy discs – were amusing. VSee if desperate
