Cynthia (Sinthia) has a big love for daddy as a girl. When she sees her mom and dad “unfold” in the bedroom she snaps. After killing both her parents she sets fire to the place. Some years later a doctor at the mental institute tries to find out about her diabolical nightmares. Now we enter her journey into a semi-psychedelic purgatory to find redemption.

What a crazy ride of bizarre, psychedelic, theatrical, burlesque, diabolical and poetic piece of underground cinema. I don’t even want to analyze the morale of the story. This low-budget art movie is all about dedication and creativity…and Satan!

sin5

Something weird serves us with a great dvd double-bill with loads of extras about satanic rituals, witchcraft, gay-sex(!) and much more. The picture quality is unfortunatelly not the best, and this one had deserved restoration.
