So, KISS Meets The Phantom Of The Park remains officially unissued on DVD to this day. I thought that maybe they'd release it last year for the 30th anniversary, but no dice.
Oh crap, you're right. I didn't realize it was a different version. I wonder why KISS decided to release this version.

Sometime down the road I'll re-watch Attack and my bootleg of Phantom to see exactly how they are different.

Actually, Phantom of the Park was very briefly released on DVD but KISS issued a cease-and-desist order demanding it discontinue. Those DVDs are rare.

Really? I never heard about that. And if there was anyone who'd know something KISS-related, it would be me. I haven't spent 32 years in the KISS Army for nothing, missy!

I did get one. It's on a par quality wise with the bootleg DVD I had. I suspect they were sourced from laserdiscs.

There's some kind of a rights dispute over the TV movie. Gene Simmons has said that he tried to buy the rights so KISS could release it, but no one seemed to know who had ownership of it.

Maybe the theatrical version had a different distributor or they were able to license that easier. I don't know.

I would love to see an official DVD with better picture quality and sound and maybe a "making of" documentary. It's so bad it's good and it deserves the deluxe treatment. The version on KISSology looks and sounds great and I guess it will have to do for now.

I've read that several places on the Internet. Not sure how true it is, but it would've been interesting to see!!

Director Guillermo del Toro has disowned his 1997 film Mimic.

Bob Weinstein was said to have frequented the set of the film making demands for what should be shot; not allowing del Toro to have creative control of what he wanted to do.

Del Toro has since never worked with the Weinstein's and said that he wasn't happy at all with how the film was released.

Probably most noticably Arthur Hiller in "Alan Smithee: Burn Hollywood Burn."

Also the director of "American History X" hated the final cut. He wanted the Smithee credit, but couldn't get it.

I remember reading somewhere that Edward Norton was credited as director for awhile.

Wouldn't surprise me. Norton got to have his own cut - one of the reasons the director was so ticked. Can't really blame him on that.

Michael Vartan said in the recent issue of Entertainment Weekly that he wants to apopolgize for being in the 2000 movie The Next Best Thing. Vartan said,

"I want to apologize to all of you who had the misfortune of seeing me in this romantic comedy. I played Madonna's bad boyfriend. You've got to be a pretty bad boyfriend if not only does your girl leave you, she leaves you for a gay man. I was cast as a rap producer, and there is a scene that makes me want to stick needles in my eyes. I'm in the studio, producing a rap track and you see me as an idiot saying, 'Yo, more bass! More bass! and I'm smacking the fictious ass in the sky. It's one of the most embarrassing things I've ever done. I don't know what movie tickets cost at the time, but if there were $7, I owe you all a refund."

^ I love that quote. I never saw that movie - never had the desire to. I remember Ebert & Roeper named it one of the worst of 2000. Wasn't Benjamin Bratt in it, too?
