The Incredible Melting Man (1977) (Blu-ray Review)

Colonel Steve West has just returned from an incredible history-making flight to Saturn when he is hospitalized with an ailment that baffles the entire medical community. His flesh is melting and to stay alive he must consume human flesh and blood. The infected Colonel West escapes from the doctors’ supervion and hides in the surrounding community where he begins to hunt for human flesh. Who can stop the Incredible Melting Man?

While notoriously panned by critics for years, The Incredible Melting Man, is still a film that will give you great entertainment. It might not win any awards, but it is the type of movie that can make you feel as if you were a kid again. A kid who just rented some weird film from your local video store. That really is the charm of a film like this. It is a fun and lly film at heart, but it still gives us some awesome gore and slime on our screen. When the going gets tough in this film our “heroes” might be more worried about a lack of crackers for his soup then he is the posble coming danger for his in-laws, but that is what makes this film such a fun watch.

If you enjoy monster or creature features of any-kind you will get enjoyment from this. The film also has that cool 70s feel to it that also boost the quality of what you get out of it. Sure, the movie might be a “bad” film, but it is a movie that is so bad it is enjoyable. Also, here we have a great transfer for the movie that isn’t perfect, but it will still be very pleang to you HD fans. Some scenes look a little soft and there is some wear on the negative in spots, but the look helps the film. The Incredible Melting Man is just fun. And, I think if you watch it with a group of friends you will get even more out of it.
