Kolchak The Night Stalker: Carl Kolchak was a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service, and a trouble magnet for situations involving the supernatural. Kolchak turned his investigative skills to vampires, werewolves, zombies and all manner of legendary creatures, but in the end he always failed to convince his skeptical editor, Tony Vincenzo, that the stories weren't products of Kolchak's own overworked imagination.

Wonderful Spooky Classic Television Series that came out in the later 70's.The first movie(the night stalker) about a newsman tracking down a Vampire in modern day Las Vegas was the highest rated t.v.movie of its day.Dan Curtis(Dark Shadows) followed up with a movie sequel(Night Strangler) and this 20 episode series.Its a darn shame the networks canceled this after only one year.Everything from The X-files to Buffy the vampire slayer was inspired by the Night Stalker and Darren Mcgavin(R.I.P.)Carl Kolchak is absolutely wonderful and Funny as he constantly has run-ins with disbelieving Police and gets scared everytime HE tracks the monsters down in their Lairs.These 2 movies and series are and will forever be television Treasures.

@Cruiserville68 said it great in his/her comment. @realitystream is correct also, it should be 4 star series. This is great night time tv. Way different from the Twilght Zone, Thriller, or any other black and white tv movies like that. This was a great series, way to short not many made. Even thoe the series is dated with the effects, ity is still very relevant to the movies and tv series they have going on now. Every once in a while the SyFy channel puts the whole series on their channel. What a gem this is!!

Terrific horror/sci-fi series that took a serious position on the possibility of other beings/ creatures / and myths are living amongst us. I used to hope that Kolchak was related to the VanHelsings, because he had a hard time getting witnesses to his discoveries, lol - 9/10

Great old '70s series combining the supernatural with dry humour. The special fx are pretty primitive and cheesy by today's standards but this is still a lot of fun to watch.
