"You've never seen anything til you've seen the Sun through the rings of Saturn," exclaims Alex Rebar. Apparently, somehow this causes him to start melting and eating people, such as a nurse in the tightest fitting nurse's outfit ever, a nerdy fisherman, a horny old couple who simply can't keep their hands off each other in a car. To save the day comes Doctor Ted Nelson! Written by

The films budget was so low that the production couldn't afford stock footage of Saturn for its opening scene. Instead public domain stock footage of the sun and a moon satellite was used for the scene where Scorpio V orbits Saturn. See more »

The Incredible Melting Man plays like an extended episode of The Six Million Dollar Man, but with violence and some nudity. I know this film is a bit crummy but I found it impossible not to kind of like it.
The acting and script are not the best. But the effects are good for a 30 year old movie with a budget of $50 - the title character takes quite a while to actually melt but when he does it's reasonably impressive; we also have one inventive death scene involving electrocution. Of note too is the music, it's insane - a cheese-tastic medley of nonsense.
* Marvel at the slow-motion nurse who jumps through a pane of glass for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
* Be amazed by a day in the life of a severed head.
* Beware of the psychotic cannibalistic melting humanoid. Called Steve.
* Be astonished when our hero takes a break from hunting the melting lunatic to have a bowl of soup and complain about insufficient crackers in the kitchen.
This film is just too 70's for me to hate it. It's tacky and trashy but I thought it was a lot of fun. You could do a lot worse.
