Can you help me remember the title of a movie?

Hello all!

I saw a sf movie when I was a kid that left me changed. The same way that Star Wars made me the man I am today, this movie scarred and scared me! Since then I've become a huge exploitation/sf/horror fan... but this show has eluded me.

It would be from the early mid 70's maybe a little later, perhaps even late 60's.
I was very young when I saw it. This show was definately R rated.
The story was of a guy that has/makes a supercomputer that runs the house. The computer falls in love with his wife and manages to isolate her and tries to seduce/impregnate her. I remember vivid monochromatic shots of red, or green or blue? Anyway I don't remember too much more other than my childhood abject fear :)

Thanks,

Stinky

Thanks! I'm downloading it as I type!
Yeah I saw the simpsons take on it. That's what kept poking me in the ass to find out what the title was.

Hmm.... now I'm not sure if it is the right show. I think I am actually looking for THE DEMON SEED (1977). Either way "Colossus: The Forbin Project" is quite similar and I want to see it.

Demon Seed it is... the reviews on IMDB proved it conclusively. But no DVD, too bad.

Strange how the SF of the '70's still resonates in me even though I considered it shlock until a couple of years ago. (I was born in '71)

Logan's Run, Zardoz, Demon Seed. Not to mention all the great horror... *sigh*

I'm off to watch "Blood Spattered Bride"
Thanks for the help.

indeed it is good fellow. The "simpsons did it" episode of south park sums it up best... simpsons has done everything going because its copied everything going :lol:

The halloween specials are great though, loads of old movies referenced in them.
