Christmas Night with Santa Conquering the Martians



More holiday opportunities for bad movies: If you're looking to do something on Christmas night, the folks at Cinefamily are offering up "Mondo Christmas," featuring the classic "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians."

Here's some info:

When December comes, connoisseurs of cracked cinema have reason to be jolly, for 'tis the season for holiday schlock to flood the TV screen and choke the movie theaters.

Once again, Cinefamily is going to spoil you rotten with all kinds of goodies, including verité footage of department store Santas, misguided movie tie-ins, exhumed cartoons and aborted holiday specials.-- as well as a specially-prepared Xmas video mix from Everything Is Terrible! Finally, in a rare 16mm screening, we'll unwrap Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, the supremely screwy saga of two moron Mars-men who, on orders from their supreme commander, go on reconnaissance to kidnap Saint Nick and bring him back to the "red planet" -- in order to edify all the gift-hungry alien children (including a very young Pia Zadora!) who've somehow heard of our loopy Earthbound holiday customs.

Come celebrate the holidays with the only family that knows what you really want--the Cinefamily. Yule be glad you did.

Santa Claus Conquers The Martians Dir. Nicholas Webster, 1964, 16mm, 81 min.
