RiffTrax, the remnants of the infamous MST3K cast that ripped on terrible movies, gives the gift of mockery this year with RiffTrax Live: Santa Conquers the Martians
. Mike Nelson and the guys who played Tom Servo and Crow (Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, respectively) verbally assault this story of Martian boys and girls becoming so inflamed by the steady stream of Christmas specials beamed from Earth that they kidnap the real Santa Claus for a Christmas on Mars. But Santa has backup, in the form of two Earth kids who also got nabbed. Assassinations abound and eventually everyone gets a present. This live simulcast of the worst story ever told starts at 7 p.m. at the Chesterfield AMC 14 (3000 Chesterfield Mall, Chesterfield; www.fathomevents.com
). Tickets are $12.50.
