KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park (1978) (part 3 of 6)
It’s now time for the Scooby Doo segment of our film. The Three Biker Types walk through the Chamber of Thrills, which is basically a haunted house, complete with all the usual suspects: Frankenstein’s Monster, the Wolf Man, Dracula, etc. Chopper manages to have the unfortunate (and predictable) luck of standing directly over a trap door. Devereaux presses a button and voila, Chopper falls down a Futurama tube. Only problem is, he falls feet-first, yet when they cut to him sliding down the tube, he’s going head-first.
When they can’t find Chopper, Dee and Slime go “investigating”. Slime eventually doubles back to look for Chopper, because the 11th Commandment states that when in danger, you must always split up, so that you can be dispensed with one by one for the sake of suspense.
Slime gets grabbed by a Mummy in a sarcophagus, and lets out a feminine wail of his own to rival Sam’s earlier bitch-scream. Of course, he too falls head-first down a Futurama tube as well.
So now Daphne—er, I mean Dee, is all alone and gets scared by more robotic horror movie characters. She then backs into an iron maiden and falls down a Futurama tube of her own, but she’s clearly smiling during the slide down. I guess since they couldn’t fit the director in there with her, they had to just take her word for it that she was still acting.
