Original DVD Issue Notes:

Vanguard Cinema in association with Rogue Arts and Filmkitchen.com present

A Philippe Mora film

From the director of Communion

"8.8 out of 10!" - User Rating IMDB.com

A down-and-out film director burns down his house to collect insurance money in order to finance his film. Soon everyone wants a piece of it.

Jake Seiling (John Savage - Thin Red Line, Summer of Sam, Godfather III, The Deer Hunter) has a vision he wants to bring to the big screen. The problem is he doesn't have the money to pull it off. Despite being Hollywood's erstwhile wunder-kind director, his claim to fame is a drunken punch he landed squarely on the nose of the biggest studio exec in town. Enters Arnie Green (James Wilder - Melrose Place, Models Inc, Perfume, Allie & Me), a notorious B-movie con man/producer with a veneer of what today might pass as charm. Together they concoct a plan - to burn down Jake's house and collect the insurance money for financing the film. Only Jake's ex, fallen movie star Brenda Goodman (Joanne Baron - Perfume, Allie & Me, Hard Luck), catches the whole scam on Polaroid. Now they really have problems unless they include her in the movie, bribe the insurance investigator who is, what else, an actor and whoever else wants a piece of the action. Burning Down the House; an unflinching, out-of-control black comedy in the flavor of The Player and Mistress.

It doesn't appear as though a soundtrack album was ever released for this movie. The tracklisting above is the list of songs that appear in the film according to the end credits.

Aside from Mick's acting part in the film, the only other Fleetwood Mac related piece of interest is an exceprt of Fleetwood Mac's Rattlesnake Shake which appears as background music in once scene in the movie. Neither the group nor Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer or John McVie actually appear in the film other than in the audio track of said scene.
