12 Great Christmas Moments | Day 4: Aliens invade Santa’s workshop in Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)
Santa Clause Conquers the Martians may well be one of the worst movies of all time (unless watched as the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 version) but It’s so crazily eccentric that It’s hard to hate. I particularly love the absurdness that is Martians and their tinfoil robot invading Santa’s workshop for the first time.., It’s just not a sight you expect to see. Also Santa calling the robot a ‘big boy’ is particularly funny. I also love how one of the aliens is clearly a mexican dude (complete with no-more-sterotypical Mexican moustache) holding a water pistol. Terrifying.
