If you'd like chill out and have a chuckle this Christmas Day, flash on back to this classic installment of Mystery Science Theater 3000 circa 1991 and watch Joel Robinson, Tom Servo, Crow T. Robot and the rest of the crew on the Satellite of Love wisecrack their way through the decidedly non-classic 1964 film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, widely considered to be one of the worst films ever made.
This kind of film is the reason MST3K was invented, and fans of the cult favorite movie-nerd joke-fest celebrate this film as traditional annual viewing. It features one of the show's most memorable songs, "Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas."
