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!

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

Sonata and ilikebikes --

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! I think these are it. I was able to find Amazing Stories on Netflix but unfortunately the amazing melting man is not on there
Thank you guys so much once again. I had been thinking about these movies FOREVER and thought no one would remember them!!!!

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. ..
