THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN (1977)

Transient

Director: William Sachs.
Cast: Alex Rebar, Burr De Benning, Myron Healey

After a trip to the rings of Saturn, astronaut Steve West returns to Earth suffering from a disease that causes him to melt and eat people. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” says one of the doctors. After chasing a fat nurse through a plate glass window, Steve goes on the rampage; decapitating a fisherman, scaring some little kids and eating the heroine’s comic relief parents. The excellent special effects by Rick Baker depict Steve gradually loosing his body parts while Rainbeaux Smith contributes a scene gratuitously exposing hers. Both the acting and the décor are hilarious. Best dialogue: “My God! It’s his ear!”
