If it is possible for a film to be "in heat", then Zalman King's Wildfire is that film. Teenagers Steven Bauer and Linda Fiorentino have their wedding plans shelved indefinitely when Bauer is imprisoned for bank robbery. Upon his release, Bauer learns that Linda is a wife and mother, with no intention of reverting to her previous lifestyle. All this changes when Bauer breaks parole and goes on a crime spree. Turned on by danger, Linda becomes Bonnie to Bauer's Clyde. Maurice Jarre's orgasmic musical score enhances the steamy eroticism of this typical Zalman King wet dream.
