Well, thanks to this bluray release, that time has come, and I finally saw what I had been missing all these years... one of the most awfully acted and directed movies of a time when cheap and nasty movies were abundant. It has two qualities which redeem it slightly - it falls into the `so-bad-its-good' category, in a "Plan 9 From Outer Space [Blu-ray]  [US Import]" kind of way, making it quite chuckle worthy if you are in that frame of mind - and one can only imagine that you know what you are getting into, when you buy an ultra low budget 70's movie called "The Incredible Melting Man".Read more ›
A wonderfully gorey and gloopy throwback to the sci-fi films of the 50s, The Incredible Melting Man is many things, most of them awful but if watched in the right frame of mind is as entertaining as it is silly.
The story for what its worth concerns three astronauts who travel to Saturn to study the planets rings. Unfortunately for them they are exposed to high levels of radiation caused by a solar flare from the sun. This kills two of the men immediately and leaves the third astronaut, Colonel Steve West horribly disfigured and in a degenerate state which causes him to quite literally melt. Back on earth the Colonel awakes and is quite rightly disturbed by his now melted Crayola crayon appearance and promptly goes mad killing a nurse in the process and escaping into the Californian countryside. With his flesh literally falling of his skeleton, West finds he can postpone the condition and prolong the degenerative process by consuming fresh human cells turning him to cannibalism. With his mind going the way of his body he now remorselessly kills anyone unluky enough to cross his path whilst at the same time the last remaining piece of cerebral matter that is still Steve West is urging him back to his hometown. With the army and his close doctor friend on his trail, the putrifying mass must be found and destroyed before the public find out and a second planned mission to Saturn leaves the earth.
The Incredible Melting Man is a real like it or loath it kind of picture and for those who do loath it there is good reason. The story is full of holes, continuity is all over the place, the science is hokey and the acting unprofessional.Read more ›
How a big studio like MGM were fooled into producing something as bad as this is anyone's guess...
Quality is present in Arrow's usual high quality work, lots of extras and nice looking packaging. But there are some things you can't polish...
Astronaut Steve West's body begins to melt after he was exposed to radiation during a space flight to Saturn.
Escaping from the hospital, West trawls the land in search of human victims to eat in the desperate hope of staving off the melting of his body.
It's as bad as you most likely have heard it is, and Rick Baker's makeup work is as good as you have heard it is! Intended as a horror parody but switched to being a "supposed" horror with some cuts and swipes requested by the studio, it's pretty evident upon viewing the film that was clearly the case. Tale doesn't add up to much more than the melting man of the title walking from one scene to another dripping in goo whilst meeting up with a host of bad actors. He's pursued by a pal who wants to help him, while it all builds to some fireworks at a power plant where the "big" battle unfolds.
You can't really do much with the story, after just 8 minutes of film he starts melting and once his bodily parts start falling off you just know he is beyond help. The tragic creature vibe is strong enough to hold interest, if you can stop yourself from laughing at everything else that surrounds him (it) during its Quatermass Experiment journey. The power plant scenes are nicely photographed, the final demise of the creature is bleakly sad and Baker really comes through with the only bit of quality in the piece. It's messy in more ways than one! But fun to be had if in a very forgiving mood. 4/10

This film is rubbish - well presented rubbish on the part of Arrow Films - but nonetheless rubbish. Not even that entertaining as a turkey.Published 19 months ago by Mr. Mark Slater
