    Demon Seed

    ★★★

    The 70’s were a wild, creative time.

    Demon Seed is weird, genuinely uncomfortable movie. I physically squirmed several times, but couldn’t stop watching. It’ll make you think of Rosemary’s Baby and Terminator and countless “science gone too far” movies, but it’s still a unique creation of its own. 

    I’m not looking forward to the nightmares about Alexa trying to impregnate me that are sure to come.

    "He ties me up, touches me, makes me watch, but he never lets me see his face."

    This should be the happiest moment of Betty's life. She's finally gotten her big break as the lead in an opera, and the whole world is offering her acclaim. But she's also being stalked by a killer who repeatedly abducts her, ties her up, and forces her to watch him murder those close to her. Who is this man? Why is he so…
