1977’s DEMON SEED features another horrifying tale of a supercomputer run amok, this time Dr. Alex Harris’ Proteus. Instead of commandeering military resources, Proteus – designed to shift shape, and in control of their heavily automated home – traps Harris’ wife Susan and attempts to branch out into the human world by impregnating her. Combining the eerie horror of ROSEMARY’S BABY with the technological concerns of the era, with a remarkable performance by Julie Christie and fueled by a musique concrète soundtrack, DEMON SEED remains remarkably unsettling and powerful. Unavailable on Blu-ray, we also present DEMON SEED to you in 35mm.
