We've Got To Get Out Of Here

Did you know that KISS once starred in a film in which an evil mad scientist created evil KISS robot doubles, kidnapped the band, and substituted the evil KISS for a rock concert at Magic Mountain, so he could brainwash KISS fans into going crazy and destroying the park? And that it was produced by Hanna-Barbera? And it aired on NBC as KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM? Here's the NBC promo:

Great line reading, Paul. Goodtimes Video released on a cheap VHS as KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF THE PARK. It wasn't advertised well, but the film appears on the KISSOLOGY: VOLUME 2 box set, which is where I saw it recently. It's a letterboxed version of the print that played theatrically overseas as ATTACK OF THE PHANTOMS. Strangely, there are no phantoms anywhere in the film, at the park or otherwise. There are some white robot kung-fu werewolves, however. Oh, and Anthony Zerbe plays the villain. Sweet.

Yet another reason I'm glad I missed out on the 70's.
