| Unusual but entertaining
The Flaming Urge tells an unusual story but is moderately entertaining. The town it is set in is a slice of small town America, somewhat similar to the town of Mayfield in Leave It to Beaver; in other words, it is the perfect town, and one that doesn't exist in reality. The setting is upset by the arrival of a stranger, and soon fires break out all over town. This turns the story into a detective tale, and leads to a suprising ending.

The film is worth watching for the portrayal of the townspeople, whose sources of entertainment seem to be limited to going to the beach and chasing firetrucks; this latter activity leads to some funny moments.

Lots of black humor abounds.

The Flaming Urge is pretty much a forgotten film today, but worth watching if you get the chance to see it.
