    KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park

    ★★½

    "Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park" directed by Gordon Hessler
    Starring Kiss, Anthony Zerbe, Carmine Caridi, Deborah Ryan, Brion James
    -----------------------------------------
    As a kid, I think I watched "Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park" at least once a month on late night TV. It seemed to constantly rotate with "Logan's Run" and "Looking For Mr. Goodbar" on Friday nights on the local independent station.

    This was slightly before the era of cable and VCRs, and they liked to…

Two adults arrive in a deserted Nebraska town that's been taken over by kids, in a sort…

    Task 19 - An experimental short film.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    This is probably too gay for audiences today, so I can only imagine what it must have seemed like in 1950.

    Written and directed by Jean Genet, and believed to have been shot by Jean Cocteau, this short tells the story of two male convicts courting and making love with a prison wall between them, while a brutal guard prowls the hall spying on the…
