Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
Candy Canes and Crappy Campy Xmas Flick
Okay, when I first saw this as a kid with my dad, we both knew this movie just sucked. I would give this movie half a star, but it was so hilariously bad that I had to give it the other half of the star. I was surprised to see that this film was NOT directed by the infamous Ed Wood. So why is movie bad you might ask? Well, this film had an extremely low budget, there was a robot made out of cardboard, there was a man in a polar bear suit, the props for the martians suck because there wasn't enough green makeup for the actors portraying the martians. Second, someone must have had A LOT of free time to think of the story for this TV movie. Santa Claus gets kidnapped by martians because the martians want Christmas on mars. It could've been a good comedy the movie just flat out fails to try to be good, and that's why I thought Ed Wood directed this campy Christmas flick. So if you want a good Christmas movie skip this one. BUT, if you LOVE bad movies that are like "Plan 9 From Outer Space" then this is the movie for you! Merry Xmas!
NOTE: Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) made fun of this movie so I suggest you check that out on YouTube
