The Incredible Melting Man (1977)
85 min.
Directed by William Sachs.
With Alex Rebar, Durr de Benning, Myron Healey, Ann Sweeney, Michael Aldredge.
Putrid camp nonsense about astronaut Steve West (Rebar) who gets exposed to radiation while on a mission to Saturn.

He returns to Earth in a progressively liquefied state, as his skin and flesh tissue begins to melt away from his body.

Of course, he then becomes a vicious killer who feeds on human blood to stay alive! (Seems in his new state, he needs the human cell tissue for sustenance.)

This ludicrous sci-fi/horror film is not even fun on a B-movie level, and is worsened by an awful stock score that was later sampled in Demonoid (1981).

Of interest only for Rick Baker's imaginatively gooey make-up effects, and a few eerie images of severed heads floating around in waterfalls.
