DIRECTOR: DONALD CAMMELL
CAST: JULIE CHRISTIE, FRITZ WEAVER, GERRIT GRAHAM
Cammell, visionary co-director of Performance, summons up the same sense of claustrophobic terror in this terrifying two-hander which has Julie Christie (in a harrowing, commanding performance) menaced and ultimately impregnated (!) by the computer that her scientist husband has installed to oversee the function of their automated dreamhouse. Based on a Dean R. Koontz novel, with Robert Vaughn as the voice of the omnipresent Proteus IV.
Demon Seed is screening as part of the series: The Singularity
