The Synopsis for The Night Stalker (1972) 720p

Carl Kolchak is a newspaper reporter with an abrasive personality that has gotten him fired ten times from various big-city papers. Now he's reduced to reporting for a relatively small-time paper in Las Vegas. It's here he gets the story of his life. But will the local sheriff, or the D.A., or even his own boss, let him print it? He has an ally in the FBI agent brought in to investigate this strange case. It seems someone is biting the necks of young girls and draining their blood. Can this killer with supernormal powers really be a 70-year-old Romanian millionaire? Can he really be a vampire? And can an aging reporter do anything to stop him?

The Reviews for The Night Stalker (1972) 720p

A television movie with bite.Reviewed bydavid-697Vote: 10/10

Long a staple of late night television schedules, `The Night Stalker', is a memorable slice of ?seventies horror. Darren McGavin is fantastic as Carl Kolchak, an eccentric, down at heel reporter covering a series of murders which are not what they seem. He is backed by a fine cast of familiar faces who help reinforce genre veteran Matheson's quality script and the atmospheric direction of John Llewellyn Moxley, which hides the made for television origins of this movie.

If this has a weak spot, it lies in the ?bad guy', who is basically all teeth and snarls. Lacking character (and plainly odd) it's surprising that he wasn't spotted long before he arrived in Las Vegas (incidentally, the location adds a certain charm to the story).

Clearly a gem of a TV horror movieReviewed bybfjrnski2Vote: 10/10

I have never been a great fan of Darrin McGavin.But here HE is obviously having the time of his life!As "Karl Kolchak" McGavin has the job of convincing his TV viewers that HE is convinced that a real-life Vampire killer is running loose in modern-day Las Vegas!

And "the Night Stalker" is just the right mix of atmosphere and scariness and doubt to keep it's TV viewer on the edge of the seat!Maybe it even works BETTER as a TV movie!! We the viewer are left with that final puzzling question...try to tell yourself "it couldn't happen here"!

Of course,this wouldn't be possible without Darrin McGavin's performance.He took the best of an opportunity late in his career,paving the way for a future TV horror series.I don't think the series was nearly as good as the original.But only Darrin McGavin could have carried it at all!!!

A great TV-movie about vampires? You bet!Reviewed byKlaatu-18Vote: 10/10

Made-for-TV movies in the horror genre seem doomed by the fact that they are interrupted every few minutes by commercials.

But when you get an interesting concept (a vampire stalking Las Vegas) and a world-class writer like Richard Matheson (who wrote "The (Incredible) Shrinking Man" and numerous classic "Twilight Zone" eps) you have a formula for success.

When you add producer Dan Curtis, the creator of "Dark Shadows", the possibility of a kick-ass TV horror movie becomes a reality.

When a woman is murdered, reporter Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin) is called back from a vacation to cover it. A two-day old story, Kolchak tells editor Tony Vincenzo (Simon Oakland) that it doesn't seem to be worth pursuing. But Vincenzo insists, and off he goes.

He finds, through his contacts, that the victim lost a lot of blood. Another victim is found in the middle of an unmarked expanse of desert sand... also drained of blood. (The phrase "massive loss of blood" becomes a sort of in-joke.)

Kolchak's girlfriend (Carol Lynley) tries to get Carl to accept the possibility that the killer might be an actual vampire. He resists at first, but as the victims and evidence mounts up, he becomes convinced.

The story builds to a satisfying climax, but the kicker is in the way that the story is hushed up and censored.

Matheson's script is atmospheric and witty. The interplay between Carl and Tony is worth the price of admission (or the DVD).

The movie spawned a sequel "The Night Strangler" and a series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker". The series (available on video tape) was the inspiration for Chris Carter to create "The X-files".
