For Your Christmas Day Viewing Pleasure: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

I’m a big fan of horrible movies — flicks that would make even Ed Wood himself wince in agony.

On Christmas and the days leading up to it, everybody shows movies like It’s a Wonderful Life, Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street and A Christmas Story, but hardly anybody ever shows gems like this.

Below is a 9:33 clip from the 1964 train wreck, Santa Claus conquers the Martians,” with running critique from the cast of classic program, Mystery Science Theater 3000.

Merry Christmas all!
