Movie Night on the Dork Forty: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

So here, as promised, is our Dork Forty Christmas movie spectacular: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians!

(But first, don't forget to scroll down a bit and watch the introductory cartoon: the ever-disturbin' Rejected! Funny how blog-time moves in reverse from reg'lar time, ain't it?)

First, a few words about tonight's film: This 1964 disaster is often hailed as one of the worst movies ever made, and was justly lampooned on the classic Mystery Science Theater 3000. Even for a kids' movie, this thing is mind-bogglingly awful. Which makes it just the kind of gloriously bad spectacle that's most worth watchin'! Also of note: this movie marks the film debut of 1980s flash-in-the-pan beauty queen Pia Zadora! And it features one of the most diabolically-catchy bad theme songs of all time! We'll be singin' this one around the nerd farm for days... and hatin' ourselves because of it!

So pull up a lawn chair, grab yourself a candy cane and some hot chocolate, and enjoy... after the jump!
