Movie site Fandango compiled the results from their user-generated poll posing the question “What is the worst Christmas movie of all time?”

1. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)

The top-voted worst Christmas movie is a B-film from the ’60s that cost $20,000 to make. This fantasy has become a cult favorite in past years after it was featured in an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and is still being screened in theaters in L.A. and New York over the holidays.

#2. Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984)

You may think Christmas and horror don’t go together, and you’re right. This slasher film chronicles a young boy who turns into a serial killer after witnessing his parents’ murder by a man dressed in a Santa outfit.

#3. Jingle All the Way (1996)

Nothing says the spirit of Christmas like Arnold Schwarzenegger punching his way through mall in order to score a Turbo-Man action figure for his son.

#4. Jack Frost (1998)

Not to be confused with the ’96 slasher film, Michael Keaton stars as a lead singer in the band The Jack Frost Band who died in a car accident and comes back to life as a snowman to spend more time with his family.

#5. Santa With Muscles (1996)

Hulk Hogan dressed as Santa, enough said.

#6. Ernest Saves Christmas (1988)

The character Ernest P. Worrell played by Jim Varney is a classic, but his wild escapades in trying to find a replacement for Santa on Christmas goes down in history for all the wrong reasons.

#7. Home Alone 3 (1997)

The third in the popular Home Alone series, it was the first in which didn’t feature the star Macaulay Culkin or director Chris Columbus, which could explain its place on the worst Christmas movies list.

#8. Deck the Halls (2006)

Danny DiVito and Matthew Broderick are neighbors who duke it out over the holidays to one up each other in Christmas decorations on their houses.

#9. Surviving Christmas (2004)

This Christmas movie starring Ben Afflek was a major flop at the box office after its October release, and was out on DVD two months later.

#10. Christmas With the Kranks (2004)

Starring Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis, the couple decides to bypass Christmas all together when their daughter leaves town and invest the money on taking a Caribbean cruise instead.
