Charlize Theron = The Devil?

While searching for yet another way to avoid writing a synopsis for my latest novel (I could write a thesis on this if I wouldn't keep putting it off), I turned to my faithful friend in times of such need: Netflix. I've powered through all of the classic "Invader Zim" episodes but I was still in the mood for a quirky cartoon. So, I decided to search for "Lucy: Daughter of the Devil."  For anyone who hasn't seen it, this is a great cartoon from Adult Swim that is essentially MTV's "Daria" meets "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman/Terry Pratchett. Unfortunately, Netflix was a big fat bust on this one.

Still, the eager-to-please search engine didn't want to appear completely unhelpful. Unwilling to accept failure, it offered me the following suggestions based on the search in this order:
1. "I Saw the Devil"
2. "The House of the Devil"
3. Charlize Theron

Does Netflix know something we don't know? No wonder she was able to lose all of that weight so quickly after "Monster."
