SINTHIA, THE DEVIL'S DOLL (1970)
God, I hate this movie. SINTHIA is the story of this annoying little twat who is obsessively in love with her father and jealous of her mother. So one day she sees them making love and kills them both in a fit of illogical rage. This all happens at the very beginning of the movie so then for the next 80 minutes or so we are treated to pitiful ass-wipe Sinthia whining and crying about what she did. She repeats "Daddy, where are you?" and crap like that ad nauseam until you feel like the movie is intentionally trying to torture you with its pseudo-artsy-fartsy nonsense. The whole thing has the feel of a really bad LSD-inspired nightmare, but not in a good way. Director Ray Dennis Steckler, disguising himself here under the name Sven Christian, has done some good horror flicks (THE THRILL KILLERS) and some fun bizarre kid flicks (RAT FINK A BOO BOO) but he should stay away from attempting art-house bullshit. There is a ton of nudity on display but it's all presented in such an unappealing manner that I can't imagine it would turn anyone on.
This group turned the movie into a music video, not sure if it's any better that way but at least it's shorter and you can't hear Sinthia's grating voice:
