This is the best of The Night Stalker series IMO. The second ABC TV movie-of-the-week picks up where the first one leaves off with Kolchak winding up in 1973 Seattle. The whole premise of government cover ups was a common thread in a lot of 70's film making. Here it's co-opted to ghouls and vampires. A weird pairing would be Michael Small's 'The Parallax View': another paranoid Seattle caper from 1974. Both reflect the Watergate scandal and investigation which ran from 1972-74. What the sequel has over the first TV movie is a sense of humour about the whole thing. The matte shots of Seattle's 'underground city' are laughably obvious but I love that they extended things so the villain could have a proper evil lair. It's all preposterous fun. Plus ... John Carradine drops in. A TV series followed.

This was the pilot movie for the TV series. I thought it was the best show on television before
"The Six Million Dollar Man" and "Wonderwoman". Great for 70s nostalgia; but if you're used to modern vampire movies "Blade" and "Twilight" etc. it's going to seem lame and tame.

Always liked Darren McGavin. Commentary goes down memory lane.
