KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978) (part 2 of 6)
Now, I know you’re just jonesing for an EV update. So let’s catch up (or rather, fall back) to the scene where Park Owner Guy bitches about profits, and Devereaux re-bitches about research. In the EV version, this is extended with, well, more bitching by Devereaux. Although, Devereaux actually gets a motive in this version, when we learn some of his exhibits were taken down and replaced with KISS displays. Oh, that’s right! KISS is in this movie. I almost forgot.
And then Park Owner Guy and Devereaux are riding around Magic Mountain on a trolley. They hop off for the sole purpose of continuing their dialogue, right in the middle of the exit lane. I only mention this because a kid in KISS make-up almost runs into them and then politely asks, “Excuse me, can you tell me where KISS are signing autographs?” Yeah okay, so in the world of this movie, teenagers are either A) biker scum or B) Beaver Cleavers who just happen to like loud rock music and singers who spit blood.
