The Incredible Melting Man



(link)


I have never seen THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN. Actually, I should amend that to say that I have no real desire to see THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN. It doesn't sound like it's my sort of thing, and it's also supposedly not very good. Yeah, yeah, some wiseacre out there is thinking that it being not very good should make it exactly my sort of thing. Hush.

On the other hand, I saw this TV spot a lot when the movie was new. It traumatized me as a child. Gimme a break, I was only 5! It is one heck of an awesome ad. The editing is first-rate, and Adolph Caesar's voiceover work is as remarkable as always. This spot almost makes me want to see a movie like THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN!

I've never seen it all the way through, though I remember seeing a special on the effects back in the day.

my pal Brock really likes it, for some odd reason. he always talked about the scene in "the river" with "the waterfall" and when finally seeing it, it was a damn drainage ditch with a little drop.

I actually watched the end of it from the street, when it was at the drive in. I won't spoil it for you, but let me say it's very fitting.
