Demon Seed

1977 / 94min / 35mm

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
