The Incredible Melting Man

A trash classic lands on Blu-ray.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
In the trash classic The Incredible Melting Man, the titular creature — aka astronaut Steve West (Alex Rebar), returned home from a botched mission to Saturn as a walking pile of goo — claims his first victim less than 10 minutes after the MGM lion roars, but only after he's given a nurse such a shock that she jumps through a glass door. What’s not to love?

Lady in a Cage

Histrionics, bar none.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Unleashed to home video enthusiasts again — this time courtesy of Warner Archive — 1964's Lady in a Cage traps the elderly Cornelia (the legendary Olivia de Havilland, Gone with the Wind) in an elevator. The lift isn't in an office building or department store, but in her own home; the cane-leaning Cornelia's been using it to bypass stairs after breaking her hip.

Sorcerer

Fails to cast a spell.


Action

Rod Lott
William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Activities begin 6:30 p.m. Friday at Dunlap Codding on Film Row, 609 W. Sheridan Ave. Tickets are $45-$55. Call 235-3700 or visit oklahomashakespeare.com.
