KISS MEETS THE PHANTOM [UK/USA-DVD] Widescreen
Two versions of this movie exist. One aired as TV movie in the U.S. in 1978 and the other was re-edited, music was changed or in most cases Kiss music replaced 70's style incidental/segue music that was used in the TV version and it was released theatrically in the UK with the title "Attack of the Phantom.' This is a combination of the 2. The theatrical UK cut quite frankly looks a lot better than the TV version. One is widescreen and the other is cropped to fit a 1970's square TV screen. The main music is intact but some other music was added. A few edits were made to try to tell the story in some sort of chronological order but in the end we have a really great sounding soundtrack with a fantastic picture. Not quite Blu-ray quality but definitely the best quality DVD has to offer. Other companies may have just taken the DVD and transferred it onto a blu-ray but that is what separates us from the other guys. We don't try to sell you a Mazda and tell you it's a Lamborghini even though it's a really nice Mazda.
