Spontaneous Combustion is the Cave of Trouble’s second 30 minute length movie. This movie is essential viewing for any serious researcher of spontaneous human combustion (SHC), and is recommended for all believers of conspiracy theory.
If you’d like to leave us some comments, please do so at the bottom of this page. We eagerly await to read what you have to say.
In my mind, Spontaneous Combustion (2004) is the Cave of Trouble’s answer to director Tobe Hooper’s similarly titled Spontaneous Combustion (1990). Before we began shooting, I saw to it that all of the band watched Hooper’s movie. Most of them complained, probably with good grounds. Sometime after completing the movie, I made my girlfriend also watch Hooper’s movie. I fell asleep at one of the crucial parts, when Brad Dourif shoots hoary flame out of his eye socket. All this however is immaterial. The real issue here is that Hooper has been answered, and perhaps even the SHC community at large too.
The future plans for Spontaneous Combustion are two-fold. The first is to produce a DVD for it, which will include the “May I Have Some Please” video along with a couple other bonuses.
The second plan is the lecture tour and screening of Spontaneous Combustion slated tentatively to occur sometime in 2005 or 2006. For those who are not able to attend, a PDF of the paper will be provided on Protozoic. It is also not completely out of the question that the talk be put up in audio form. Maybe Real if it is still around.
I hope you enjoy the video.

This movie sucks. Making this movie sucked too. To be perfectly honest, about the only thing worse than this piece of crap is the aforementioned Spontaneous Combustion directed by Tobe Hooper. Wow.
This movie consumed my whole Christmas break. I had three weeks off from the grueling experience known as graduate school, and what do you know, I had to work longer hours during my “vacation” than I did at school. That in and of itself would have been ok if the end product wasn’t a pile of steaming excrement.
