A couple of times over the years.  I reviewed it so long ago, I cannot even remember when it was:

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

This was one of the first "holy grail" quests on my road down to bad movie loving, along with such gems as Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and Plan 9 from Outer Space. I had read about it but couldn't believe such a movie existed, so I finally tracked it down. I haven't watched it in some time, but I am proud to say that I own it both on VHS and DVD. Every so often I will read about a movie (here or elsewhere) that captures my imagination, and I can't let it go until I track it down and see it. That is, of course, much easier now. I found Santa Claus Conquers the Martians back before the internet made such things easy. Congrats on a great find, though!

Can't stand the thing (and I own the DVD...'twas a gift...) 
SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS used to be shown on TV right around Christmas time in the 1970s, but my siblings couldn't abide it. (Thankfully!  'Cause I'm one of the younger ones which meant I had to watch what the olders wanted...)

Sadly, this along with the star wars holiday special have become a christmas tradition for me and my girlfriend...She's so understanding.  I can't help but laugh at Droppo at times.

It's a perennial favorite, and now, thanks to, available for free. That's where I got my copy.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is not as bad a movie as everyone makes it out to be.  Sure, it's got flaws, but there's a lot of entertainment to be derived from it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
