Start price is 9.99 and colour is pretty good as per images. Some light scratches to the right and an occasional light one centre left, again check images. Whenever I list a film which may have marks I always try to photo them so they can be seen by potential bidders.

OMG Tom! I saw this film as part of a double bill when it was on UK release around 1978, I think. Your listing brought back such good memories of the days when we got admitted to a "AA" rated film, despite being younger than the offical censor guidelines. Gotta put a sneaky bid in for this movie! Hope you are going to be at Blackpool Tom?

Thanks Ron, unfortunately,(& ashamed), Blackpool is a little out of my reach but yes I saw this in 78 as a double bill with Squirm. I loved this movie, the only reason I am selling some of my titles now is two fold, no one here seems to want to watch my horror films with me any more and I am now looking at downsizing my collection so I can afford new ones. I fund film buying with film sales. I was surprised at how good the colour was on this one when I put it on to take screenshots as I haven't projected this copy since 2009. As I understand it I believe many of these prints have lost there colour. I think this one must have been a late print or one of the lucky ones to have decent stock. The marks that are on it were there from day one.
I won the print of incredible melting man - looking forward to seeing it - I think the cutdown works better than the full feature - as you mentioned the double bill of this feature with squirm - which I also have - I might spool both of them on an 800ft for my own mini double feature - unfortunately my copy of squirm has faded a little - but thanks for this little gem of a horror.

Hi Dave, Many thanks, any problems do give me a shout but I don't think you will be disappointed, I remember seeing this at our local flea pit in Plymouth with Squirm as a double bill. I am posting this one first class today so fingers crossed you should get it tomorrow. Enjoy.

I love this movie. Should I admit that? I remember seeing the 400' reel on the shelf at K-mart and then never seeing it in a store again. Finally ordered a copy from Larry Arpin. Didn't even have a sound projector at the time, but I needed to have that reel. It's the only abridgment that I have never parted with from back in those days. Wish my copy was as nice as the one that just sold, but I enjoy having "my" copy from all those years ago.

Nothing wrong with enjoying this movie Marshall. I'm only selling some of my movies so I can buy new ones but my Brother did say to me why do you want to sell this one as It is a good one and in good condition, I'm sure im going to wish I didn't but unfortunately to keep buying I have to give something up. I took a look at my film list last night and am trying to consider what goes next but I'm down to everything I like. It wont be too long before we open the old thread of "what films do you regret selling"
Having said that, as long as I get a good film or films off future lists i'll be OK.
