ahhhh it says the second video is private. help, plz?


you never ever ever cease to AMAZE me.


Rich, have you seen Troll 2? I think it's right up your alley. And it's on Hulu: http://www.hulu.com/watch/31381/troll-2


The picture stills reminded me of the old show "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters".


I agree with Charlotte. I immediately thought of Sid and Marty Krofft, including H.R. Puff n Stuff. I could SOOO picture Witchiepoo singing "Give It To ME."

At least the monsters can keep fit in their gym cave. There's something very "Flight of the Conchords" about all this. I'm going to list all the Christmas monster films I can think of:
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians
Nightmare Before Christmas
Silent Night Deadly Night
Jack Frost
Black Christmas

Quite a sub-genre.


I loved Penthouse as a teen too! I somehow convinced myself that I wasn't gay, because I had a very well-worn issue of the magazine...that just happened to have Marky Mark on the cover.


I can see why you started to doubt yourself - this thing looks too freaky to have been anything but a fever dream!

As the internet gets bigger, our collection of childhood mysteries gets smaller... I've found a bunch of tv episodes, comic book issues and obscure movies just in the last year that had been eluding me forever.

At first there's a wondrous sense elation, and then a weird feeling of sadness, since a major part of the thrill was "in the hunt", as they say. Still, I'm glad you finally found your Holy Monster Grail!



damn that old bitch is horny


For some reason, the monsters singing "Silent Night" reminded me of a bizarre, yet delightful song I found on YouTube. I believe one of the comments goes so far as to say "This is why the internet was invented".



I spent years trying to find a movie I had seen as a youngster on USAs "Up All Night", hosted by the ever lovely Rhonda Shear. The only scene I remembered involved a shrunken teenage boy crawling around in a girls panties after falling in, resulting in her explosive orgasm right in the middle of class! He uses her giant pubes to crawl out. I posted that exact memory on some strange b movie site and someone emailed me with the title....."Getting Lucky"!!!! Spent way too much on the movie as well, and it sucked when I watched it as an adult, but it was worth knowing I wasn't crazy.


Wow! What other memories crawl around in that knowledgeable noggin of yours Rich?


Wow. Definitely some Sid and Marty type stuff. Never came across this movie before, though.


I assume that your "Alice in Boboland" is in reference to Nothing But Trouble because as soon as I saw the pic of the monster's friends that's exactly what I thought of...Bobo and Lil' Devil (Lil' Debbil?).

This. This is why I love you.


This is the best Christmas ever! I love it so much.


I have on like this. The only scene I can remember is an evil queen eating what look like peaches from a tree she keeps under a class bell jar. The tree gives the queen eternal life. Two chilren (a boy and a girl) are trying to destroy the tree and when they do the queen gets old and crumbles and dies. I have no idea what it is and it's been driving me CRAZY!!


Michelle, I'm pretty sure you're thinking of "The Hugga Bunch Movie". You can watch it on YouTube. I agree with the above poster, that while it's incredibly fun to hunt for these obscure, vaguely remembered childhood relics, it is slightly disappointing when you actually find them.


Thanks for making ChristMarch spectacular!!!!


@ Brian- It so was! Good call, I never would've remembered that! I'm still debating on whether or not to actually watch it, but thank you for solving the mystery for me. That one had been plaguing me for a while.


The quality and style of this totally remind me of a movie from my childhood.. Revenge of the Teenage Vixens from Outerspace! I need to find that one too.


For the longest time I thought I wasn't right in the head cause I remembered a movie from the 80s that involved two kids and a leprechaun running around in the woods, and then suddenly they were in this wacked-out world where people would turn into butterflies and worshipped some Jabba the Hut looking creature. I now know I'm not nuts because I founds a trailer for that movie the other day on YouTube:


Congrats on your Christmas in March miracle, Rich!


You are a genius! like you the identity of this movie has bugged me for ages and I seemed to be the only person who even vaguely remembered it - right off to Amazon... thank you!

K. My cousin is addicted to Monsters. Its really sad. We tried to have an intervention but it all just went wrong. Recently her attitude has gotten darker. And we've noticed her skin turning a greenish pale color. She doesnt see it but we do. What can we do.

I can't BELIEVE that I finally found this movie again... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting all this!!! I'd had some of these scenes locked into my memory since I was probably no more than 3-4 years old. Heck, maybe I only watched it once and it burned itself into my memory. I LOVE THE INTERNET!!! I always hoped someone would eventually post it/write about it online, and behold!

As you can imagine, googling "give it to me give it to me" was completely fruitless. That song was my most vivid memory from the film. Like you, I'd posted about it on some "find that film"-type sites, to no avail, though I did find other people who were looking for the same thing.

Oddly, I had remembered the witch as a young-ish man, kinda Pee-wee Herman-esque. Now she's a middle-aged woman! I remembered the hair differently, too: I thought it was a dunce's-type hat. Now that I can listen to the song, I realize that my memory version, while similar, had taken on a life of its own. The acting was also better, in my mind. It's almost anti-climactic now to finally watch.

The girl climbing the ladder freaked me out as a kid.

Any chance you could upload the entire movie? :-)
