Who better to celebrate Creepmas with than the Mistress of the Dark herself, Elvira?! Last year, the Queen of Scream did a holiday special where she presented Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (available on Amazon!). This is awesome in of itself, but what I really love about it is the claymation intro that precedes the special! The claymation intro was supposedly done by the Chiodo Brothers (creators of the cult film Killer Klowns from Outer Space, which I LOVE btw) and features Elvira picking out a Christmas tree and running into some old fiends, including Santa Claus.
I love the nod to traditional Christmas claymation specials with a macabre twist!

I love the pumpkin snowman! His voice reminds me of Sean Hayes' character Jack on Will and Grace.ReplyDelete
Had to do claymation in art school, gave me an appreciation for the detail and patience that goes into it.
I think she's vegan, too!ReplyDelete
I LOVED the claymation clip! Brilliant!! The Chiodo Brothers also did a short film that I love, called 'Callalilly', about creepy dolls. Here's the link in case you're interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2hJnXCJq0cReplyDelete
