You better watch out --
As we approach awards season, Hollywood will bring out its best -- be it tear-jerking Oscar bait, or FX-laden epics, they are all sure to be wonderful gifts. But if you prefer a cinematic lump of coal, HMN has you covered (we know you've been bad, anyway).
That said, allow us to present Hulk Hogan in 1996's "Santa with Muscles", a film so bad, the original screenwriter sued to have his name removed from the credits. This cheesy Christmas disaster features the Hulkster as a millionaire of questionable morals (a stretch --?) who, during a run from the law, is knocked out cold and wakes up thinking he is Santa Claus. He somehow hooks up with an orphanage bedeviled by evil scientists (the head baddie is played by Ed Begley Jr.), and proceeds to do good. You will notice Mila Kunis in one of her first film roles as an orphan. But no rotten movie is complete without the inimitable Clint Howard! This one has got it all.
In deference to your busy December schedule, we have programmed HMN for a Thursday evening (we know your Saturdays are all taken up -- we checked). So instead of watching "FlashForward", come party with us and holler to your heart's content at one of the worst holiday movies you'll ever see.
