All you young folks out there might not be familiar with the 70’s movie The Demon Seed, starring the Jennifer Aniston of that decade Julie Christie, but Netflix may be taking a page from that storyline with their new horror/sci-fi thriller Tau.
They released the trailer on Tuesday for this stylish new addition to their growing horror line-up of original genre titles.
“Return to your tasks immediately or I will inflict pain,” says the titular monster program while unleashing a series of deadly obstructions for our young heroine trapped in its walls.
The film is directed by artist and animatics supervisor Uruguayan filmmaker Federico D’Alessandro.
As in Christie’s reverse home-invasion cult classic, Tau stars Maika Monroe (It Follows, Independence Day: Resurgence) as a young woman held captive by the A.I devices in a wired house. Gary Oldman and Ed Skrein also star.
The movie is scheduled to hit the streaming service on June 29.
