    Need help identifying 2 80s movies...

    Hi gang!

    I vaguely remember seeing these 2 movies when I was a kid and, for a laugh, i wanted to watch them again... the problem is i dont remember much of the details but here they are:

    Movie 1 - In this movie, it starts off with a man and I think he is an astronaut. Something happens (the spaceship crashes or something) and, towards the end of the movie, he turns into a monster... the only scene i remember is where the guy is entirely bloody/unhuman at the end........................

    Movie 2 - In this movie, a Jamaican lady comes to baby sit some kids... she's a voodoo lady or something and turns the house into something crazy for the kids - plants everywhere like a jungle, i think there were animals running around too..................


    Do any of these ring a bell? sorry for the vague and ridiculous descriptions... i can not remember any other details than the ones above.... Any ideas what the movies are?

    Thanks in advance!

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    The first one was "The Incredible melting man." I saw it when I was a kid too.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I think the first one is a screen adaptation of Tolstoy's seminal work, "War and Peace"

    The second one, is also vaguely seminal, as I believe you are looking for "Debbie Does Dallas"

    No need to thank me, this is my gift to you.

    That's what I thought at first, but I think at the end of that movie the astronaut turns radioactive and then undergoes meltdown, where he basically melts away, his eyeballs fall out lots of other grossness takes place. ..
