From Tobe Hooper, director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, this surreal inferno thriller sees a couple become human guinea pigs for Project Samson, a top-secret experiment exposing them to massive amounts of atomic radiation. They appear to have survived without any side-effects until they spontaneously explode into a ball of flames moments after the birth of their child. The child (Brad Dourif - The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers; One flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest) survives and seems to have few problems until decades later he starts suffering from some chronic headache, while his severe temper and rage cause people around him to spontaneously combust. The government are soon on the trail of this incendiary human firecracker but he proves very difficult to bring under control.
