KISS versus the Werewolves

I just watched KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM OF THE PARK for the first time since I saw it as a little boy. I waxed nostalgic about it over at our sister site VAMPIRES.COM. The whole blood-drinking thing with the Demon, Gene Simmons, made it a perfect fit, and there’s a Count Dracula automaton in it, too. But there’s also a werewolf. More than one, really, although two are never referred to as such. (For that matter, nobody ever refers to the obvious werewolf as one, either, not even when Gene Simmons fights it.)

The plot—if you can call it that—involves the titular Phantom (a disgruntled Imagineer at an amusement park) creating Stepford-esque automatons to replace the members of KISS so they can change the lyrics to one of the band’s songs and instigate a riot. (Yes, really.) A couple of those automatons are equally ape-like, wolf-like, and cat-like. They are no more durable than the others, though, as they are easily defeated by the super-powered members of KISS, before the latter lose their magical medallions that give them their abilities, only for the villain to leave said medallions IN THE SAME ROOM with the band after he captures them, then acting surprised when KISS gets their powers back and foils his evil machinations.
