“Santa Claus saves Christmas for the Children of the World!” In this notorious, mind-boggling Christmas anti-classic, green-faced aliens in baggy leotards land on Earth to steal our most precious resource … Santa Claus! Can two plucky (and highly annoying) Earth children foil the aliens’ dastardly plot, rescue old Saint Nick, spread Christmas cheer throughout the red planet, and save the holiday for us all?

“The absolute WORST Christmas movie ever made! Campy, ridiculous and mind-numbingly awful – it’s simply amazing.” – Ruthless Reviews

Long-considered to be one of the all-time greatest bad movies by connoisseurs of cheesy B-flicks, the undeniably awful 1964 sci-fi family extravaganza Santa Claus Conquers the Martians found newfound fame in 1991 when it was featured on MST3K, quickly becoming one of the series’ most popular and beloved episodes. Featuring wonderfully tacky special effects, bumbling robots, ugly costumes, a manically-laughing Santa of your nightmares, a rocking theme song, and the inauspicious movie debut of prepubescent actress/singer and future ’80 bad movie queen Pia Zadora, everyone’s favorite Bad Christmas Classic (filmed in BLAZING SPACE COLOR!) is back on the big screen in a newly-restored version guaranteed to delight and bewilder Earthlings everywhere! Hooray for Santa Claus! (Dir. by Nicholas Webster, 1964, USA, 81 mins., Not Rated)
