The cult television series that inspired THE X-FILES, KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER was not nearly as successful as that later show yet still maintains an influence. The show, which ran from 1974 to '75 follows the creepy adventures of Carl Kolchak, a scruffy, cynical reporter played by Darren McGavin. When Kolchak finds that the murderer responsible for a series of bloody murders plaguing his home city of Las Vegas is a member of the undead, a vampire out for food, he undertakes a quest to defeat the bloodsucking fiend. Gritty, dark, and dramatic, KOLCHAK was described by many critics as too scary for television.

    Verified Purchase

    I grew up too this series,and have always been a big fan of Darren McGavin as the Great Carl Kochak,and also the Great Dan Curtis who developed,created,and excutive producedthis as he did Dark Shadows...Richard Mathesan wrote quite alot of these stories,and as well as the 2 Pilot Movies that were very big hits that led too The ABC Series too take off...I highly recommend this compilation for any horror,sci-fi,and fantasy lover...Keith Bates

  • Kolchak : Night Stalker TV Episodes

    This is the 1970's set of television episodes, "Kolchak : Night Stalker", released on double-sided discs. It's wonderful to see the series again - it was both scary & fun (and sometimes downright silly) - but the transfer to double-sided discs is really a pain. It's difficult to even remove the discs from the case without damaging them.. difficulty figuring out the episodes and there are literally no extras included in this set - nada, nothing. Because of the format, some DVD players may stall. It's a pity this was not better prepared for DVD release. And, it's DARK in parts. I mean really DARK - too dark to see. This series really deserved better. I suspect - sadly - it's the best we're going to get. I can't recommend the content highly enough, however! It's great to see it back from the 1970's. The brand new series "Kolchak" (which quickly fizzled) probably deserved more play, but it utterly lacked the humour & engaging qualities the original was built on, particularly Kolchak's interactions with the INS office staff. This series (as has been noted often) was the inspiration for "X Files", and Darren McGavin (the original great Kolchak) made cameos therein. There are no lack of cameos in the original series, either - "hey - it's that guy!" ~~ "Crowblog
