Trash Film Debauchery, a series featuring the weirdest and trashiest movies that modern cinema has to offer, has a special treat for Christmas. Hosted by Theresa Purcell, the evening will feature a screening of the MST3K version of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. It's a perfect way to enjoy the holiday if you're not really planning on celebrating the holiday.
"It makes no sense," Purcell says. "It would be completely unwatchable without MST3K." The MST3K version, which aired in 1991, elevates the material into work of art, as the silhouetted hecklers make for great comedy.
