Stepping Into Something Weirdstdd

The Something Weird Video double feature Satanis: The Devil’s Mass and Sinthia: The Devil’s Doll were the objects of my attention for the past two nights. Much to my chagrin there really wasn’t any good GIF getting from the Anton LaVey documentary Satanis; Ray Dennis Steckler’s Sinthia on the other hand was jam-packed with GIF potential. Most of Sinthia is the titular character relaying her nightmares to her psychiatrist. It definitely gets redundant and some scenes drag but Sinthia definitely had some sterling moments. Here are two of my favourite moments of Steckler’s Sinthia: The Devil’s Doll



Sinthia is daddy’s little girl; at least until she is compelled by a force beyond her comprehension to stab her parents to death while they are having sex. Happens to the best of us Sinthia.
