Ideas/influence: Movies that have possessed technology

 

I want to find out what kind of movies where technology has been possessed as this is the what will be important in my movie.

These are some of the movies that I’ve researched in which this happens

Demon Seed (1977)

The Tech: Home Security System & Computer

The Story: Based on an early novel by Dean Koontz, Demon Seed stars Fritz Weaver as Dr. Alex Harris, a scientist working on an A.I. system called “Proteus IV” that incorporates organic material. After escaping its human controllers, Proteus takes over Harris’ home-security system and decides that it wants to have a child, so it artificially inseminates his wife with genetically manipulated cells it took from her. Once it confirms that she’s pregnant, Proteus surrenders – leaving the couple to discover the horrifying truth of the their new “baby.”

The Lesson: Don’t bring your work home with you. It’s not fair to your family.

Poltergeist (1982)

The Tech: Television

The Background: The Freeling family moves into a California suburb, only to be terrorized by malevolent spirits haunting their home. The spirits initially make contact with the youngest daughter late one night via the family television set in the now-famous scene featuring five-year-old actress Heath O’Rourke announcing, “They’re here.”

The Lesson: Don’t let your kids stay up too late watching television.

Christine (1983)

The Tech: Car

The Story: A 1958 Plymouth Fury becomes eerily possessive of its teenage owner, and goes on a killing spree around town. This early John Carpenter film was based on a Stephen King novel, and while it features a few slight differences from the source material, it retains much of the same terror that will add a new dimension to long road trips when you find yourself talking to your car.

The Lesson: You know that oil change you’ve been putting off? Get it done. Now.
