I admit it,I have been seduced by this sci-fi classic, there isn`t much to
say, except this: DEMON SEED IS A MUST SEE!.
Demon Seed contains critical and political views on the technology in the
future. With an megalomanic computer which are taking over an house, and
even get pregnant with the human lady of the house(played by Julie
Christie)this movie contains suspense at the best. The computer takes over
the house....but will the computer (which is called Proteus,if I remember
correctly)take over the world...the answer is within each viewer. Not
Hal in 2001 the error is caused...as always by human behaviour.
The director of this masterpiece; Cammell, deserves a lot of credits for Demon Seed. The movie is a golden moment in the film history!

Alex denies the request, but Proteus IV does find an open terminal in the Harris home ...
