Spontaneous Combustion Dirigido por Tobe Hooper

Opiniões dos críticos

I must admit that even the bad ones are still redeemingly peculiar… like SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION, which stars Brad Dourif and ought to be better than it is . . . Hooper’s filming style is elegant and expansive as ever, despite some obvious budget difficulties — the first two key deaths happen offscreen, which seems odd for this kind of movie, and the opening desert scene is a terribly cramped and unconvincing interior set.

For all of its dysfunctions, Spontaneous Combustion might be one of Hooper’s most clearly realized films from a concept-design standpoint, reflected in recurring color motifs, eccentric and artificial sets…, and ironically quoted pop iconography. Which is to say that its messiness as a genre piece exists in some strange, tense relationship with its more coherent dramatic through-lines. But then again, it’s a movie about anger, and anger is supposed to be irrational.
