The Night Stalker: Directed by John Llewellyn Moxey. With Darren McGavin, Carol Lynley, Simon Oakland, Ralph Meeker. An abrasive Las Vegas newspaper reporter investigates a series of murders committed by a vampire.
“Las Vegas is a town where the unusual is considered normal.However when former top reporter Carl Kolchak played by Darren McGavin meets with police reluctance while covering the murder of a showgirl his curiosity is aroused.Suddenly there is a series of murders apparently committed by the vampire killer.The closer Kolchak gets to the truth the less he is able to reveal and the more frightened he becomes.u0026quot;The Night Stalkeru0026quot; is a taut and suspenseful mix of vampire horror and comedy.The cast is superb with McGavin playing Kolchak like a 1940su0026#39; reporter who has emerged from a time capsule into the 1970s.The portrayal of vampire Skorzeny is positively bone-chilling.Iu0026#39;m not deeply into made for TV horror,but u0026quot;The Night Stalkeru0026quot; is very good.”
