It's the kookiest Christmas ever when Santa Claus is kidnapped by Martians in this "you have to see it to believe it" Christmas "classic." Maybe you've seen this movie hilariously skewered on Mystery Science Theater 3000, but you have to watch it on its own to truly appreciate it. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is just so bad that I can't help but love it, and that explains why I am giving this deservedly one-star movie four stars. The Martian get-ups are more ridiculous than Marvin the Martian's normal attire, the sets redefine the very definition of cheap, the acting is over-the-top and generally horrible, and Santa is - well, he's just a little bit weird, if you ask me. Every time the guy starts in with his distinctive laughing (usually for no apparent reason), I am reminded of the fact that Satan is spelled with the same letters as Santa.

Things aren't going so well on Mars. It's bad enough that the Martians are all colored a ridiculous shade of green, dress like rejected superheroes, and wear ridiculous antenna-spouting helmets on their heads at all times, but now the children of Mars are all acting depressed and withdrawn; all they want to do is sit and watch Earth TV. Kimar (Leonard Hicks), the leader of Mars, seeks the advice of the planet's 800-year old wise man and is told that he must bring Santa Claus to Mars so that the children can actually have fun and be children for a little while. Voldar (Vincent Beck) opposes the plan every step of the way, arguing that Kimar's plan will soon result in a whole planet full of lily-livered, mush-brained nincompoops. Kimar wins out and sets off for Earth in the most pathetic spaceship of all time to catch Santa and bring him back to Mars - along with two Earthling children.

This movie is absolutely awful which accounts for why it's so popular amongst people that love bad movies. It has a certain putrid charm about it in that the actors were seemingly giving it all and truly believed they were making something for the ages. Unfortunately for them it was something for the ages but for completely different reasons.

The movie itself deserves 4 stars for the sheer badness of it. The costumes are what you'd expect from a low budget movie and if you've seen the robot or the polar bear you'd understand why. The dialogue is pretty bad and while the kids are cute, they're not good thespians.

This does lose points however due to the transfer. I realise that the movie is now in the public domain so anybody can literally make and market their own version but this one is just poorly done. I guess a lot of the issue is with the source material they used. The colours are washed out, there are scratches on the film and it just feels like it was done on the cheap. The fact that it's not an expensive movie does take out some of that sting which is why it loses 1 star.

All in all a great example of bad filmmaking and it deserves all the scorn and unintentional laughs that it makes.

For years now, this little gem of a Christmas flick has been picking up steam as an annual favorite during the holidays. I'm glad to see it finally made its way home to DVD. Usually the only way to catch a glimpse of this treasure was to stay up late and watch it on off-beat cinema. This movie needs a "special edition" though. The audio/video quality is very bad and needs some re-mastering. Hooray for Santy Claus!!!

Yeah, "It's a Wonderful Life" is a pretty good movie. However, the movie I joyfully watch every Christmas is about martians who, lacking a Santa Claus to bring joy to martian kids, kidnap Santa from Earth, along with two children. "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians" is almost sublime in its badness, and with painted-green martials in skintight suits, a Santa with a lewd chuckle instead of a "Ho Ho Ho," incredible wooden acting by the cast (one of whom is Pia Zadora), unspeakable special effects, and a horrible theme song, it is a masterpiece of the so-bad-it's-good school of film. Just TRY getting the theme song out of your head.
The DVD from Laserlight looks exactly as one would expect it - awful. The supersaturated colour scheme has not aged well, and looks very grainy. There are many scratches, but that only adds to the film's strange charm. Unfortunately, the first fifteen seconds or so of the film's opening credits are not on this DVD, depriving loyal fans of seeing EVERY BIT of "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians." Unsurprisingly, there are no extras, although the menus are pretty good.
