YMMV / KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park

Go To

  • Awesome Music: The only reason to watch, though "Rip and Destroy" (aka "Hotter Than Hell" with new lyrics) sounds oddly off-key.
  • Fight Scene Failure: Tons of it, the most egregious being Ace obviously being replaced by his stunt double during the fight with the robots, which is extra noticeable since his stunt double was African-American.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: KISS getting replaced by robot clones is kind of funny after Eric Carr and Tommy Thayer replaced Peter and Ace, even taking on their original stage personas.
  • Narm: It'd be easier to list which lines and scenes aren't narmy.
    • "Easy, Catman, they are serious!"
    • "Gene's brother was an only child!"
    • "Ack!"
  • Older Than They Think: The "heavy metal band saves the world from evil robot clones" plot was later rehashed in Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey. In fact, that movie was partly a reference to this film, according to Word of God.
  • Padding: The entire scene with the 45 year old "teenage" punks has nothing to do with anything, and just wastes 30 minutes of them wandering around a spookhouse.
  • Special Effect Failure: Well, it was a 1970's TV movie which had No Budget. Even in the 70's, the effects were awful.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: How could you screw up a movie in which KISS fights Evil Robot KISS? In interviews the band said the movie was pitched to them as "A Hard Day's Night meets Star Wars", the band would later state that "Paul McCartney or Mick Jagger would never make a movie where they fight evil robots!"


How well does it match the trope?
