Ain't seen it. Don't want to.

Astoundingly bad movie! I've only seen a small portion and wanted to gouge my eyes out. ~ El Kabong

Never? Not even to see Pia Zadora as a pre-teen in green make-up and antennae? On second thought, you are a very wise man.

I wouldn't call this overlooked in the least. It's as well known as PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE in the Hall of Shame of "Worst Movies Ever Made". Even before I knew it had this dubious honor when I saw it as a kid for the first time I thought it was utterly stupid. Can't get that awful tune out of my head anytime I see the posters.

"Hooray for Santy [sic] Claus" is the theme...though SANTA CLAUS, Jerry's choice last week, might actually be worse, in part by being marginally less insane...

Absolutely worth watching in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 screening. Catch it streaming at club-mst3k.com.

At least "Plan 9 From Outer Space" (and "Robot Monster" and "Attack of the 50-Foot Woman") didn't have that horrible "Hooray for Santy Claus" theme song.

I prefer Pia Zadora's adult movies where she gets nekkid. I never saw this travesty.

You should check it out at Mystery Science Theater 3000, Cap'n (thanks Art!). It features special toys manufactured by Louis M. Marx.

Just watched this on Christmas Eve. It's actually boring as hell, nowhere near as fun as PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.
