Demon Seed (1977)

Demon Seed is one of those movies that pose the question "If man was to make an artificial brain by using robotic technology, what will happen?" Well from what I have seen it will not be pretty. Demon Seed’s synopsis is that a man creates a brain that comprised of robotics with a great artificial intelligence. When the robot becomes aware of itself, it then asked its creator when it will be out of the box. Bewildered by the question, the creator laughs and dismisses the brain. Angry and seeing that steps must be taken by itself, the brain locks the creators wife in their house and undergoes a "miracle" of modern science. It impregnates the wife with a fetus which she will deliver in thirty days. The "baby" is born and the creator decides to keep the monstrosity even though his wife tries to dispose of it in every way.

Demon Seed is a great movie and amazingly produced considered it is from Warner Bros classic line. I thought the movie was well developed and well acted. I felt emotionally sad for the wife throughout the movie. Certain small elements just didn’t make sense. However, the movie did hold weight and delivered an unbelievable performance even by today’s standards of graphics and definitely creativity.

Synopsis:

A scientist creates Proteus--an organic super computer with artificial intelligence which becomes obsessed with human beings, and in particular the creators wife.
