Based upon Dean Koontz’s best-selling novel, and directed by visionary Scottish filmmaker Donald Cammell, Demon Seed is a claustrophobic ‘home-invasion’ sci-fi thriller which sees Proteus IV (a temperamental sentient computer in the HAL 9000 mould) hijack the computer-controlled home of scientist Alex Harris (Fritz Weaver). Proteus (menacingly voiced by Robert Vaughn) traps and terrorises Harris’ wife (Julie Christie) before revealing his disturbing intention: he plans to impregnate her.
