Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978)
Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978) – Made For TV movie that originally aired on NBC on October 28, 1978. The movie features Kiss (endowed with superpowers) battling an evil robotics inventor (Abner Devereaux, played by Anthony Zerbe). When Devereaux gets fired from his job at an amusement park he swears revenge against Kiss, who he blames for his bad fortune.
The movie was filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California. It was a ratings success for NBC, but is viewed as either a low point or a source of amusement for the group by Kiss fans and Kiss themselves, depending on who is asked. Most of the scenes were filmed with little or no rehearsal, and the dialogue was tongue-in-cheek.
