Buy it... if you delight in extreme dissonance and atonality and are looking for a score that will make dogs howl, enemies retreat, and plants wilt.

Avoid it... if you value any sense of organized musical thought in your film scores.

Spontaneous Human Combustion: (Geasje Palacek) Have you ever had a really hot date? There was an Englishman who did in the 1970's... He had taken his lady to a London disco where she suddenly exploded while on the dance floor. The flames emanating from her body were so intense that they shrunk her head to the size of a fist by the time she could be extinguished. Amazingly, nobody around her was injured. Still, a major bummer for the guy's psyche. You often find strange things when researching the phenomenon of spontaneous human combustion, a joyous event usually involving elderly people who blow up in their seats, their torsos reduced to ashes while their newspaper and cushions are barely touched. A personal favorite "SHC" event happened to some poor chap sitting on the toilet in the 1950's; when he exploded, his leg shot like a rocket through the floor and knocked a radiator clean off the wall in the apartment below. More intriguing is the fact that there are gruesome pictures of these events that are rarely seen by the public. Treatment of spontaneous human combustion in media has usually been restricted to cult shows like The X-Files, though a 1995 film out of Eastern Europe addressed the topic in a more interesting way: animated horror. Very little is known about the low budget production of Spontaneous Human Combustion outside of information that can be discovered on the packaging of a bootleg release of its orchestral underscore. What few accounts exist for the picture indicate that it is a straight adult horror film that just happened to be based in the animated genre, making anyone with common sense wonder how many Romanian kids who went to see this film were utterly terrorized by its contents. Comparisons to more recent animated filth place Spontaneous Human Combustion at levels far more disturbing than even South Park and the slew of wretched shows on late night G4 Channel programming.
