Rating: 1/5 -- shot in that hopeless, bad filmmaking style ... with the delayed, artificial rhythm of a trans-Atlantic phone call

Rating: 0/4 -- For those with a taste for bad movies, especially unintentionally hilarious ones that take themselves completely seriously, you can't do much better than this. Full Review

A terrible product of people who wanted to appeal to kids but likely never met one in their lives... Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- This is, without exaggeration, one of the single worst films ever made, which hasn't prevented it from becoming a cult classic. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- The plot, such as it is, proves it is possible to insult the intelligence of a three-year-old. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Pia Zadora, in her big screen debut, stars in the colorful holiday classic, Santa Claus Conquers The Martians. Little Girmar spends all her time on the red planet watching Earth's Christmas celebration on intergalactic TV. She and the other children of Mars are green with envy that Saint Nick does not visit them each year. Seeing the sadness in his daughter's eyes, politician Kimar hatches a plan to kidnap Santa and bring him to Mars to spread the joys of the season to the Martian children. Kimar dispatches his henchmen, bumbling Voldar and buffoonish Dropo to Earth, but they encounter more than they bargained for when they arrive.

Regarded as one of the most memorable "cult films" of all time, Santa Claus Conquers The Martians is an imaginatively "trippy" and delightful low-budget holiday fantasy.

Product Description:

Santa Claus has safely returned to Earth after being kidnapped by Martians. Pia Zadora (eight years old) plays the part of one of the Martian children in this exciting tale of Santa against the universe...or at least, Mars.

A very goofy and fun movie! Movie Lover: from Maryland -- January, 13, 2005

When I started watching this movie I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought that it would be another camp movie. It is campy, and has some great low-budget moments (Watch for the scene with the polar bear) but behind all that it is actually quite a charming film, and I really enjoyed it!
