APBP 28: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians by Shiki01 APBP 28: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians by Shiki01
Why does this movie exist? No really. It exists.

If you've heard of it, it's probably from Mystery Science Theater.

I still am not sure why I had it in my movie library. Yes. I own this movie for some reason.

My mother took me to see this movie in the Theater when I was little. That would have been the mid to late 70's. I loved it then, now it just makes me laugh.

If I didn't think that the actual movie was that bad, I'd think the ponies Sweded it.

Oh, great! Another sucky B movie I've never even heard of.

I'll bet they even wear those fake Andorian like antennas in the actual movie. *rolls eyes*

I didn't know there was anything below the B movie grade.

If there is, I give this one a definite "F". :P

Oh heck yes, the the thing is this movie really isn't that bad, its actually very fun.
Most of the acting is surprisingly pretty decent for something like this, all the actors seem to know they are in a stinker but boy do they seem to have fun with the roles given to them.
The primary reason why I think this one is so picked on is solely based on the matter that it was on MST3k.
Oh sure this really is a very ridiculous movie, hell the very title of this film should clue one in on what this is all about.
The story is as basic as it goes, some Martians go to Earth to kidnap Santa because kids on Mars are unhappy.
They kidnap two kids and soon kidnap Santa himself and take him to Mars.
In the movie we do have a villain named Voldar who keeps on wanting to kill Santa and the kids and as far as villains go he might be low on the list but every hero needs a villain.
I wont spoil the whole movie, its something that needs to be seen in order to be believed.
If there is one thing I personally can say in favor of this movie is that it feels like watching a kindergarten school play.
You know all the best effort in the world is being put in to everything you see, the budget is very low, some of the costumes and sets are so obviously cheap but you cant help but admire the movie despite all of its flaws.
This movie is public domain so its free to watch online, so sit back put on a funny hat with antennae on it and enjoy this cheesy, silly, very stupid but overall enjoyable holiday B movie classic.

Oh yeah, definately not the worst movie ever. Although my initial joke was going to be a very different one (I for the first 3/4ths of the movie heard the bad guy's name as "Goldar".... so you can imagine where I was gonna go with that... then I heard "Voldar" and was very sad).

This was a somewhat-relevantly and/or -irrelevantly enjoyable movie, if you don't like knowing what the fuck they're doing from one nanosecond to the next, and having next-to-absolutely and/or just absolutely in general, NO plot WHAT-so-ev-ER! but other than that, meh.... a good waste of several hundred thousand USD's to produce, with absolutely NO return in the profits to ANY degree....

Well if you're going to start on more MST3K features, why not go with Lyra in Manos: The Hands of Fate?

I too recall this from MST3K. It's amazing how you add a little pony and the movie makes.....just as much sense as it did before. None. But it's significantly funnier this way.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. You can probably find it either: for like a dollar a dvd store, or free from some dark corner of the internet.

Not as great as I like, I still have lists and lists of movies I want. I NEED. THE CINEMA! I MUST CONSUME IT ALL!... except the stuff that I hate, obviously. Even a simply bad movie might end up in my library, but others I wouldn't pick up if you paid me. You'll know them because they won't end up as comics... ever. :)

Certainly. Pretty much any Michael Bay film is high on my list of "I gotta see this" if only to fulfill my rage quotient for the year.

Boundless, unfathomable rage. lol

There's also minor things I love to hate and so I go out of my way to see despite knowing I won't like it, like most fighting game adaptations (apart from Mortal Kombat, which believe it or not is one of my favorite movies).

Sad to say I knew of this films existence, even the comic version... Oh god, yes there's a comic version!

Also you actually own this film? Why?
