Slide 6: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)
The powerful mix of sci-fi and Christmas cheer has landed this holiday treasure on the worst film list year after year. So bad, you don’t know if it's naughty or nice. Martians, eager to show their own children fun, kidnap Santa Claus from the North Pole, along with a pair of children, and bring them all to Mars. Only evil Martians have other, sinister plans for the red-suited dude. All this, and, as John Waters reminds viewers, the debut of Pia Zadora.
