Cult Movie Essentials: Santa With Muscles (1996)

As far as Christmas movies go, one of the leaders in the so bad it is good category is none other than 1996’s Santa With Muscles staring Hulk Hogan.

Hogan plays Blake, a self-made millionaire who is not a very nice person. One day whilst on the way to a cage match – chased by the police, he drives recklessly in his car to a shopping mall and hides out inside, changing into a Santa Claus costume.

Escaping the police, he slides down a garbage chute to but bangs his head to get amnesia. Mistaken by Lenny (Don Stark aka Bob Pinciotti from That 70’s Show, interestingly fellow 70’s Show star Mila Kunis also appears in the movie) as the mall Santa, Blake begins to think he is Santa Claus.
