Elvira prepares for her second-favorite holiday, by screening a camp classic featuring Santa thwarting a Martian plot to steal Christmas plus an abominable film about gangsters battling a snow beast at a ski-lodge. Includes cult director Roger Corman's Beast from Haunted Cave, and the B-movie holiday classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.
Just in time for Christmas is a DVD release with Elvira's take on the bad-est Santa film ever seen! We've known for a while that this would be coming, and now retailers have been told to expect Elvira's Movie Macabre - Santa Claus Conquers the Martians / Beast From Haunted Cave
on December 6th
, just in time for some holiday horribleness.
One of the Martian children on the Santa
film is none other than an 8-year-old Pia Zadora (Butterfly, Hairspray, Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult
). The other film, a Roger Corman classic from 1959, stars Michael Forest (best remembered as "Apollo" in the Star Trek
episode "Who Mourns for Adonais?," and later as the voice of Prince Olympius in Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue
