Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)
The “alternative” bit about Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is that it’s not very good. At the time of writing, it resided at number 79 in IMDb’s Bottom 100 movies. To us, that’s an invitation for a remake, gossip that has churned the Hollywood rumour mill repeatedly. Meanwhile, we’re stuck with the disappointing original. Humbug.
