  • “SCOOBY DOO! AND KISS: ROCK AND ROLL MYSTERY” (Film Review)

    ,,

    Ardent fans of Hanna-Barbera’s ludicrous and legendary 1978 TV movie KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF THE PARK (of which this writer is one) love it unconditionally; the film (directed by recently deceased genre filmmaker Gordon Hessler), is absolutely one of the strangest, inadvertently hilarious and patently ridiculous cult films of all time and there’s truly nothing else quite like it, anywhere, anytime, anyplace. But for the band, PHANTOM is of significant historical relevance. By the time the film began production, KISS was at their commercial peak and, with of co-founder and self-confessed pop culture junkie Gene Simmons’ enthusiastic blessing, had found its garish painted visages stamped across every sort of mass-marketed merchandise known to man.
