Plot Synopsis:

While on the first-ever voyage to the rings of Saturn, an unexplained phenomenon takes hold of astronaut Steve West and his crew, burning all but Steve to a crisp. Somehow able to return to Earth, Steve awakens in a hospital bed, only to discover that his body is disintegrating. Worse, he begins to develop an instinctual urge to kill, learning that this is the only way to maintain his strength. After escaping from the hospital, Steve begins to ravage the nearby countryside; brutally murdering all who cross his path, and leaving behind a series of mangled bodies covered in his dripping flesh…

A legendary drive-in favorite and showcase for some of special effects genius Rick Baker’s earliest work, William Sachs’ THE INCREDIBLE MELTING MAN offers an oozing 70s tribute to 1950s sci-fi cinema. Featuring veteran TV stars Burr DeBenning and Michael Alldredge, along with cult actress Cheryl Smith (Lemora, Fantasm Comes Again), a rare performance from director Jonathan Demme, and starring Alex Rebar as Steve West - The Melting Man, Vinegar Syndrome is proud to bring this quintessential cult classic to UHD and Blu-ray, newly restored in 4K from its 35mm original camera negative!
