Default Fandango's 10 Worst Christmas Movies

Movie ticket website Fandango polled customers to come up with the ultimate holiday flop, and now has a list of the top 10 worst Christmas movies ever made.

The top pick for worst Christmas movie ever was 1964's B-movie “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.” According to the New York Times, the flick cost only $20,000 and features a cardboard set!

Other top contenders included “Home Alone 3” (the one without Macaulay Culkin), Hulk Hogan’s 1996 flick “Santa With Muscles,” and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s holiday family comedy “Jingle All the Way.”


Check out the final results:

1. "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians"
2. "Silent Night, Deadly Night"
3. "Jingle All the Way"
4. "Jack Frost"
5. "Santa With Muscles"
6. "Ernest Saves Christmas"
7. "Home Alone 3"
8. "Deck the Halls"
9. "Surviving Christmas"
10. "Christmas With the Kranks"

Funnily enough,“Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” is back on the big screen this holiday. ( Fandango says it’s a coincidence.) In case you’ve never had the pleasure, the movie’s playing in New York and Los Angeles and a few other cities until Christmas. View the list of theaters at SantaMartiansMovie.com.

Jingle All the Way. I liked it............

I saw a list where Home Alone 1 and 2 were on the list as worst Christmas movies ever but I grew up with those and to me you cant have Christmas without watching those two just like you cant have Thanksgiving without watching Planes, Trains and Automobiles and a Fourth of July without watching Independance Day(ID4).

Everyone knows those Martians are a very romantic bunch. They're always trying to steal our women/mothers/etc. because thay just LOVE women.

The only one I've seen is "Jack Frost". Cheesy B horror movie. My kids used to have it.

Jack Frost (1996 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Actually Surviving Christmas is really good. It has Ben Afleck, Christina Applegate, the man guy from the Sopranos and Catherine O'hara. I thought it was great.

Two of those are on my list of favorites, Christmas With the Kranks & Deck the Halls. I think they are hilarious.
