The fine folks at Horrible Movie Night have dug up a real gem for this month's screening -- and of course, that means THE WORST HOLIDAY MOVIE OF ALL TIME. Once named the absolute worst in IMDB's Bottom 100 list, this movie could be an example of that "War on Christmas" we're always hearing about.
Here's the info:
Allow us to present Hulk Hogan in 1996's "Santa with Muscles", a film so bad, the original screenwriter sued to have his name removed from the credits. This cheesy Christmas disaster features the Hulkster as a millionaire of questionable morals (a stretch --?) who, during a run from the law, is knocked out cold and wakes thinking he is Santa Claus. He somehow hooks up with an orphanage bedeviled by evil scientists (the head baddie is played by Ed Begley Jr.), and proceeds to do good. You will notice Mila Kunis as an orphan in one of her first film roles. But no rotten movie is complete without the inimitable Clint Howard! This one has got it all.
The Horrible Movie Night website also includes a YouTube trailer from the feature. You gotta see it to believe it.
