SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS
(Saint?) Nicholas Webster, 1964. 81 agonizing min. USA.
Mars is real mad that all their martian kids are obsessed with Earth television and especially the notion of Santa Claus! As such, they take a trip to our planet and, after kidnapping possibly the two most annoying children on the planet, are led to Santa - who they also kidnap. After a series of hiccups and grumpy martians (one in particular, named Voldar) the gang arrives on Mars and all learn a thing or two about the true spirit of Christmas.
Let's not mince words here, this is one of the worst films OF ALL TIME. But in the spirit of the season, Spectacle invites you to drink way too much eggnog, eat way too much "special" fruitcake, come armed with your best heckles and join us in kicking off our series of holiday midnights in style. Let's give this infamous film the midnight treatment it truly, truly deserves.
