KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park

"Terrible"

KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park Review


Not too far into the big book of bad movie ideas is KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park, one of the most ludicrous "horror" films ever made, and one of the worst movies you'll sit through. And sit through it you will, mouth agape, marvelling at the terrible special effects, the wooden "acting" from the clearly stoned members of rock band KISS (who probably didn't have any idea what they were getting into), and direction that amounts to plopping a camera down and telling people to read their lines. In fact, the film doesn't even look edited properly, and you keep feeling like the crew are going to run into the frame and reveal it's all a joke. The Scooby-Doo-like title aptly describes the plot -- though it doesn't mention the evil robot versions of KISS that must be vanquished before they can play the big concert (which looks like old footage), after which you'll finally be allowed to turn off the TV and vomit.
