Synopsis
What happens when the angry red planet kidnaps the jolly old elf in the red suit? "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" (1964) has earned a cult following for its quirky combination of holiday fantasy and science fiction. A flying saucer piloted by green-hued Martians invades the North Pole and brings John Call's Santa Claus back to their home planet to teach the alien children how to have fun. Featuring future Golden Globe-winner Pia Zadora as one of the Martian kids, the film includes toy-making elves, menacing robots and a bumbling Martian disguised as Kris Kringle. "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" has to be seen to be believed.
