This has to be one of THE WORST MOVIES OF ALL TIME! A lot of people will say the honor of worst movie goes to Plan 9 From Outer Space...Not hardly! That movie can be watched and laughed at at least. Without the Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment, this movie is totally unwatchable. In the story (what little there is) Santa Clause is captured by a gang of Martians who are irritated that Earth children are happy and they don't want their children corrupted by seeing this on tv. Or they're jealous...who knows? The plot is all over the place. This is a terrible movie. The soundtrack sucks, the story is non-existant to horrible, the acting is atrocious. The special effects make an elemetary school play look like Star Wars in comparison. This isn't one of those movies I would recommend because it's so bad, it's "good". Plan 9, maybe. Not this. This isn't for kids, because it's boring and bad. They'll lose interest and get in your hair again. Adults will find it stupid beyond belief. And if you're a fan of Pia Zadora, don't get this because of her. Watch some of her videos or movies from the 80's if you think she's hot. She's a kid here and I'm sure she would want to forget this movie, too. The only people I could recommend this too are masochists who just want to torture themselves. This is not the MST3K version, so if you want that one that is actually funny, check it out elsewhere. This movie is for only the most hardcore schlock conniseur.

High-Quality Video of a Truly Horrible Movie

"Since the early 1990s, this infamous holiday turkey has been a public-domain favorite. If you want a decent copy of "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" (1964), track down the videocassette from Embassy/Nelson - owners of the original negative. Regardless of print quality, this low-budget schlockfest deserves recognition as one of the all-time worst movies. Unlike the ouvre of Ed Wood, "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" is painfully bad. Composer Milton DeLugg's cringe-worthy "Hooray for Santy Claus" remains among the film's many horrors."
