The acknowledged inspiration for The X-Files, and the basis for an updated 2005 network version, Kolchak: The Night Stalker was a short-lived 1974 series spun off from a pair of extremely popular made-for-TV movies about the supernatural adventures of dogged newspaper reporter Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin). Though plagued by low ratings and critical brickbats, the show has cultivated a huge cult following over the past three decades, which has given rise to this three-disc set, which compiles all 20 episodes of the show. Though none of the episodic stories matches the suspense and writing strength of the Night Stalker or Night Strangler movies, TV horror fans will appreciate the parade of interesting and inventive monsters encountered by Kolchak (including a witches' coven in "The Trevi Collection"; an Aztec cult in "Legacy of Terror"; a Hindu Demon in "Horror in the Heights," which was penned by Hammer Films scribe Jimmy Sangster; and a headless biker in "Chopper," an episode deemed in extreme poor taste by Stephen King and co-written by Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale, and Sopranos creator David Chase). McGavin is of course topnotch as Kolchak, and he's well-matched by Simon **** as his hot-tempered boss; guest stars include Scatman Crothers, James Gregory, Phil Silvers, Eric Braeden, Tom Skerritt, and Richard Kiel as the monster in two back-to-back episodes. Sadly, no extras accompany this fun collection of Kolchak's creepiest cases.

Carl Kolchak (McGavin) is a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service; a magnet for situations involving the supernatural. Kolchak turned his investigative skills to vampires, werewolves, zombies and all manner of legendary creatures.

Great Series good find

Never seen this but I'm a fan of 1970s supernatural TV and have heard very good reviews about this series. At this price it's cheap enough to take a punt on so duly ordered. Good find!

Just one of those shows that eveyone should see just a real shame so many people don't know about it dam show needs to be rerun on TV.

Only just noticed the header says 3 disc, and wanted to add that this is a 5 disc set.

It comes in a card outer box with 3 slim cases inside, 2 have 2 discs and 1 in the other.

and it's still a hot deal :D

Is this series a serious attempt at sci-fi horror or is it a bit of a light hearted **** take?
#15
I'd have to say somewhere in the middle much like the X files,Sorry that doesnt help much

but going by your avatar think you'd enjoy the ep Mr. R.I.N.G.
( Mr. R.I.N.G." a top secret robotic prototype kills one of it's creators at The Tyrell Institute )
