retro trailer: ‘Santa Claus Conquers the Martians’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

I’m not sure whether this is actually more unbearable to watch than the movie itself, or whether it’s better just by sheer dint of its being shorter. I might have to watch it again to be sure…

Yup, it’s worse than the movie. There’s gotta be a special kind of hellish antitalent involved in rendering a trailer more hideous than even a hideous film.

This movie is so bad that it’s almost impossible to watch even with the Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment. This might be one of the MST episodes in which Joel threatened suicide, but I can’t rightly recall. The host segments, though, are among the very best ever, with lots of holiday craziness, including Crow T. Robot singing his new carol, “A Patrick Swayze Christmas.” Genius.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is available on DVD in Region 1 and Region 2. The MST3K version is available only in Region 1.
