The Incredible Melting Man (1977)
The Hideous Sun Demon which is also amazing. However this 70's ripoff follows an astronaut named Steve who returns from a voyage to Saturn!?!? with a bit of a problem. He was exposed to an unknown source that causes him to become a violent, murderous madman on a blood-crazed path to destruction. Oh and there is one more thing... He is melting. Melting fast for that matter and it seems the only gratification that Steve will get from here on is to tear people apart and eat them. Yep this movie has it all! Melting astronauts and cannibals. What more do you need?
However the weirdest entity within this movie is that it tries to play like a 50's sci-fi monster movie. It is clear that this is where the film makers inspiration came from and there are so many 50's horror cliches thrown into the mix including the constant use of a giger counter.
Caged Heat, Pom Pom Girls and Massacre At Central High. This time around miss Smith plays a model who has her top ripped off by her scummy photographer who just really wants to see some tits. I wish I could have had a talk with this pervert and told him to just rent some of her other movies and he would have seen all he wanted but thanks to him we get some more bare boobage in a much appreciated scene.
The movie also offers up a senior citizen couple being devoured, eyeballs fall from the sockets, strangulation, severed arms, electrocution, a shoot out and all the melty action you deserve. Watch it! Embrace it! Love it! Its from the incredible 70's man!
