  1. Never even heard of it as a kid. Saw it once a few years ago and didn’t even know what to think of it other than it was a bad and gross movie. Didn’t like the end of the review. It was gross and weird.

    Top 3 funniest Critic comments are:

    I feel raped. I feel honest-to-God raped by this movie.

    Aww, how charmingly creepy. I bet he’s going to be a great serial killer one day.

    Look out! Puppets created by Jim Henson’s mentally retarded brother!

  2. This movie is shit
    How is Santa ugly or One who impersonated the president these people are stupid what is there no Christmas in there town

  3. John Waters films are cleaner that this shit!

  4. i creat an account just because of this review… the movie was aparentelly this bad, this bad as i could actually feel your pain, you surendering to it, you withstanding such pain as you could not attach any jokes, any twist your could turn to fun, you just raged, you just had to steam the pain off… this apparent crap is immune to anything good in film making, so you had to resolve to this forced ending… i na sense, it fitted well and summarized your review, but then again, how does the nostalgic movies look like to you now mr omnicrap? (no offense intended, just joke purposes) [loud noises thrown at me #buuuuuu! ] oh who cares, his show is still on so “nothing bad happened”, right?

  5. Being a child of the ’80s, similar to Doug, I remember the Garbage Pail Kids…. “fad.” Never collected the cards, toys, or whatever else merchandise they had. I do remember seeing this movie on VHS at a friend’s house because HE was into the GPK. And…. even as a child I found the movie horrible.

  6. The kids in Village Of The Damned and Children Of The Corn (Especially Isaac) have more redeeming qualities that these kids.

  7. If you thought this was bad, you should see Rapsitte Street Kids: Believe in Santa. It makes this movie look like Citizen Kane in comparison.

  8. And it’s now on Blu-Ray.
