Ep.67 Remaking Santa Claus: The Movie (1985)

When you make a Christmas film whose message is against the commercialization of Christmas, the one thing you shouldn't do is fill it with a bunch of gratuitous advertising. Also, if you are trying to right a ship that has gone very wrong with Superman III and Supergirl, you may not want to hire the same director as one of those flops for your next big budget idea. Sadly, that's exactly what Alexander and Ilya Salkind did with the big budget Santa Claus: The Movie (1985) starring Dudley Moore, John Lithgow, David Huddleston, and Burgess Meredith. Despite a whole lot of wrong, the film has since gone on to become a holiday favorite and cult classic. It's so bad, it's good.

But we think we can do it better. We rethink the plot, shave some things off, add a lot more, and recast it. We also tease what a David Cronenberg version of the film might look like. Leave it to the Invasion of the Remake podcast to turn a sweet holiday film into your worst nightmare. Hilarious!
