Trivia

Almost all of Ace Frehley's fight scenes were uniquely enough his African-American stunt double made up to look like him! Ace was heavily under the influence of Alcohol Addiction by that point in his life as written about in his autobiographical book "No Regrets". And he would repeatedly leave the set because of becoming bored with the long periods required for film production shooting. His stunt double is also mentioned in a booklet of liner notes for KISSOLOGY Volume 2# wherein Ace talks about amusingly convincing others that his stunt double was him actually doing the fighting with a quip about "Taking gymnastics in high school".

Goofs

In several scenes, Ace Frehley's black male stunt double is clearly visible from the front. In some fight scenes Ace goes from white to black and vice-versa. See more »

Quotes

Star Child: Hi, Melissa.

Space Ace: A little "Star Power" doesn't hurt either.

Yes, the movie is horrible, and yes it is an embarrassment. However, if you grew up with KISS in the 1970's this movie will be very near and dear to your heart. The fact that this movie was even made is a testament to the KISS phenomenon of the 70's. It isn't so much a movie as it is a magical moment in time captured.
