A special re-broadcast of your favorite RiffTrax holiday classics, Santa Conquers the Martians & Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza, featuring a special guest appearance by comedy legend, “Weird Al” Yankovic, plus the guys will riff on your favorite holiday photos.
Celebrate the season when Fathom Events and RiffTrax.com® bring RiffTrax Holiday Special Double Feature, including two RiffTrax classics, Santa Conquers the Martians & Christmas Shorts-stravaganza, back to the big screen on Thursday, December 1 for a hilarious one-night holiday event.
Enjoy TWO features for the price of one, as Mike, Kevin and Bill take on Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, a classic from the days of Mystery Science Theater 3000, completely re-worked by RiffTrax for the 2013 broadcast. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians tells the story of an evil Martian who comes to earth to capture Santa Claus and take him back to Mars (based on a true story). Will Santa escape? Or will he sell out earth and all its inhabitants to become the Santa of, frankly, one of our solar system's most disappointing planets?!
And for the second feature, the guys are joined by comedy legend "Weird Al" Yankovic for a night of Christmas shorts, originally broadcast in 2009. From the bizarre to sublime; stories of talking Christmas trees and dolls who wake up in the middle of the night to play piano for a delighted young girl, Christmas Shorts-stravaganza has something for everyone! And if you're still in a summer mood, you'll love the special bonus short Parade of Aquatic Champions, perhaps the most popular and requested RiffTrax short ever!
Plus, as a special gift to cinema audiences, the guys will riff on fan-submitted holiday photos!
Have the Rifftrax-iest Christmas ever as the RiffTrax Holiday Special Double Feature hits the big screen this holiday season!
