MST3k’s The Mads to riff Santa Claus vs. The Devil!

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

So this is cool! Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu (a.k.a. Mystery Science Theater 3000's "The Mads") are back in this special holiday livestream as they riff on the bizarre 1959 Mexican cult classic Santa Claus vs. The Devil from co-writer/director Rene Cardona. MST3K previously riffed on the film before, in a Christmas Eve 1993 episode, and "The Mads" would later revisit the fim in December 2014 when the series – part of Rifftrax – performed a live riff of the film in theaters nationwide!

Anyway, here's the official synopsis for Santa Claus vs. The Devil:

Santa Claus, the titular gift giver working from his Toyland castle in outer space, finds himself battling against a demon named Pitch sent to Earth by Lucifer with the intent on ruining Christmas by killing Santa and making all of the children on Earth do evil.

And here's the announcement for The Mads livestream, from their official Twitter account:

Meanwhile, the livestream riff is set to air on Tuesday, December 15 at 8 p.m. EST and will feature a special Q&A with Frank and Trace and special guests that have yet to be announced and tickets are currently available for purchase on Eventbrite for $10! A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Friends in Need Food Shelf in Trace’s home area of Minneapolis.

So what do you guys think? Fellow MSTies out there? If so, gonna check out this livestream? Either way, sound off below!
