Wilder Napalm (1993)

Firestarter as a romantic comedy? Well, yes, more or less.  Although it is as much about the relationship between two feuding brothers as it is about the romantic triangle that kindles (sorry, you can’t help it with this sort of film) their long-smoldering (see what I mean?) resentment against each other.

Alabama’s Ghost (1973)
