    Even though future Oscar winner Rick Baker design the special effects for The Incredible Melting Man, this 1977 jam still makes the 50 worst list at number 32.



    Oh, boy. This movie was a literal mess. An astronaut returns from space, somehow, only to find his face has been melted. He must get human cells to stop his face from viciously melting, which means going on a killing spree. His plan backfires. Ugh. This hast to be the goriest film MST3K ever did. Thankfully, M&TB have some great quips on the flick. Tom's Ted Nelson single was a funny addition to the obnoxious fanfare. And the boys really know how to get the disturbing scenes worthwhile (i.e. the nurse running through the window, the kids smoking (?!!)). The host segments really stole the show here. For one thing, it was a spoof of the Brains experience of making the Movie. For another thing, it departs from the usual Pearl snubbing Dr. Forrester scenario from the season, which I haft to say was a little tiresome after a while. It was a treat to see the "exercise in healing" segments. I defiantly recommend this episode IF just for the host segments.
