Since it's that magical time of the year again [Dec. 19th, 2003|12:41 am]
The American Caliban
[Current Mood |expectorant]

Every year when I was a kid, after the morning ritual of Christmas presents, I would watch the same bad movie on one of the UHF independent channels. The rest of the TV was full of crap like the all-day christmas carol marathon on PBS or some Jesus movie or a parade, etc, but I always had to watch..

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians!

It has been brought to my attention that some of you haven’t seen it. Run along and do so, now.

Fortunately for my sanity, I think I've only seen the MST3K version.

But, yes, all should see.

That movie is definitely a classic. Given the MST3K treatment, it's even better.

Isn't there a part on there where Santa's talking to or about Jesus? i remember the MST guys saying about that movie "there's some weird theology going on here"

No, that's the insane Mexican Santa Claus movie they did (mentioned elsewhere by mcbrennan, I believe. It has scary mechanical reindeer.

Twisted Flicks (www.twistedflicks.com) does this every year. Red and I saw it a couple of weeks ago. It's pretty terrific. :)
