Kiss at Six Flags Magic Mountain
The production of this film was hard to do being that KISS never acted before and also half way through the production they all felt it was a really really bad idea to make this film. Most of the movie was filmed at Magic Mountain in California, with additional filming taking place in the Hollywood Hills. Much of the production was rushed, and the script underwent numerous rewrites. All four members of Kiss were given crash courses on acting.
Kiss film in production
Things got so heated that members of KISS walked off the set and their stunt doubles would stand in for them in the scene( they figures just put the make up on anyone and it is kiss) . this film was aired on NBC TV October 28, 1978 and had Big ratings but even with that Kiss hated the film for the buffoonish way it made them appear. For years after its airing, no one who worked for the group was permitted to mention the film in their presence.
The film was realized on VHS but with a different soundtrack due to copyrights and some different fight sense but people still consider this one of the worst films of all time .. We think it would a ton of fun to watch this and see just how bad it is...
