    • Released: 1978
    • Directed by: Gordon Hessler
    Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park is a 1978 television film, starring American hard rock band Kiss. The film's plot revolves around Kiss, who use their superpowers to battle an evil inventor and to save a California amusement park from destruction. NBC aired the film at the height of Kiss' popularity in the United States. Due to the film's poor acting and semi-comedic script, most Kiss fans disliked the film. Despite the film's poor quality, it has attained cult film status. The members of Kiss themselves despised the film for making them appear buffoonish. For years after its airing, no one who worked for the group was permitted to mention the film in their presence.
