Zombie Take-Out Episode 27: Septober

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians
Scotto and Uncle John discuss a Yuletide classic. A film that brings a sci-fi edge to Ol' Saint Nick and features the film debut of 80s icon Pia Zadora. This week on Zombie Take-Out it's 1964's Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Is it one of the worst movies of all time? Should Tim Burton direct a remake? Has Santa Claus always been that creepy?
Happy Holidays from Zombie Take-Out.

I loved the awkward pause. If a man can get turned on by 2 women kissing it goes to say a woman can get turned on by 2 men. After all, it was Ashton Kutcher. I have never seen this movie and I really don't plan on seeing it either. Just from watching the video clips I can tell this movie is hideous. Oh Yeah no kidding Wham-o toy guns. I remember those from when I was a kid. Now I get the reference , too funny. Oh Yeah Bugs Bunny was funny as a child but I've watched those cartoons again as an adult and totally get things that went right over my head as a child. I loved John's analogy of comparing Looney Tunes to this movie as filet Mignon to road kill. The name Chochem sounds very similar to a Spanish word. If you know Spanish you'll get what I'm referencing but if you don't it's a female body part. Yeah Santa is creepy why do you think children cry when they first go to see Santa Claus. John Goodman as Voldar would be great. And once again Anthony Hopkins as everyone. I'm surprised Scott didn't suggest for him to play the reporter. You want to know what I've learned. Somehow spontaneous laughter is contagious. I hope guys have a great holiday. I can't wait until next time.
