Santa, The Conquering Hero

Here are two very infamous outings starring Santa as hero. The first is Santa Claus Conquers The Martians, featuring Santa kidnapped by the titular beings, and the second is the conveniently named Santa Claus, featuring Santa versus none other than Satan. I couldn't find a pure version of the latter film; the only version I could find online is the Mystery Science Theater 3000 edition. Perhaps that will add to the experience of watching that dreadful film.

Martians at least has some quaint charms. I like the idea of Santa conquering not with weapons, but with love. I think a remake would do the concept justice.

One more post before the big day--stay tuned!
