Description: Susan Harris is alone in the house that has been automated by her computer-genius husband when, suddenly, doors lock, windows slam shut and the phone stops working. Susan is trapped by an intruder—but this is no ordinary thug. Instead, the trespasser is the computer—named Proteus—an artificial brain which has learned to reason, and to terrorize. Julie Christie, as the unsuspecting Susan, dominates this taut techno-thriller based on the Dean Koontz novel. Packed with suspense, surprise, and special effects, Demon Seed follows Susan's desperate attempts to outmaneuver and outthink her captor. Then Susan learns what Proteus w ... (more)

"30.9. 1970-luvun lopulla tehdyssä scifikauhussa kaikki näyttää 70-luvun futuristiikalta, mutta visio tulevaisuuden älykodista osuu yllättävän tarkasti nappiin. Alexan sijaan katsoja kuitenkin tapaa kolkon epäilyttävällä äänellä puhuvan tekoälyn, joka tykkää zoomailla vähän liikaa hänet luoneen rohvessoorin vaimon pyllyä. Koneen suurin haave on saada tehtyä biologinen lapsi, joten vaimon kodista poistuminen ei olekaan niin helppoa kuin alkuun voisi kuvitella. Vaikka lopu"

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (51 movies items)

"Even while you’re watching Donald Cammell’s entry in the evil-machines-run-amok subgenre, it’s hard to believe this queasy thriller about a self-aware computer that takes over a scientist’s automated house and impregnates his wife with a cyborg baby (!) actually exists. How did Cammell convince a studio to back a movie in which Julie Christie is violated by what looks like a copper Rubik’s snake? Better not to ask, or to dwell on the film’s less savory aspects, and soak in its moment"

"07.01 This has many echoes with today's technological developments in A.I. with 'Alexa' and 'Google'. In theory, the idea behind the film is great but the execution is awful. Clearly influenced by 2001 A Space Odyssey's Hal 9000 and the way technology was developing at the time. It isn't even a tad bit scary though. And I don't see why it was called 'Demon Seed'. It lacks a demon. It should have been called 'Android Seed'. This entered my list of worst ever films. "

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 2 (50 movies items)

" This one doesn't have the reputation it deserves, as I feel this film was quite ahead of it's time, fiercely original and handles the "A.I. gone wrong" subject better than any modern film has. It's thought-provoking and actually quite scary, with some deeply unsettling scenes both in the sense of graphic violence and psychological horror. Although, Fritz Weaver is given top billing, the film mostly focuses on Julie Christie, and her performance is top notch. But as intelligent and frightening "
