Storyline

Ten years in the making, KISS Loves You is a film that began back in 1994 when the band KISS was at a career low and KISS fans around the world were starting tribute bands, uniting at unofficial KISS Conventions and growing increasingly more nostalgic for the 70's era classic KISS line-up. The zeitgeist exhibited at these conventions was not lost on the band and in 1996 they responded, rising up like a grease painted phoenix into a new era of success. On the surface, KISS fans got exactly what they longed for, but for some the return of their idols brought unexpected consequences. KISS Loves You follows a few KISS fans along the way.

Not "Trekkies" for KISS Fans
27 March 2008 | by (Borås, Sweden) – See all my reviews

An absolutely brilliant documentary about the absurdity of idol worship.

If you buy "KISS Loves You" expecting to laugh at kooky KISS fans you may be disappointed. Although the film does use subtle humor throughout, it manages to avoid the condescending tone of "Trekkies" altogether.

The film's three basic stories unfold hypnotically. The first thread follows a family that calls themselves "The KISS Family" on their quest to meet Paul Stanley, the second is best described as "The War of the Tribute Bands" while The third is "The Bill Baker Story". This one deals with an obsessed Ace Frehely collector/impersonator/friend, who gets a little to close to his idol and burns. All three stories unfold slowly over the years and each share the same story arc- down, down & downer.

Buy & cry.
