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 Rumanian millionaire? Can he really be a vampire? And can an aging reporter do anything to stop him? Written by
In the scene where he is exploring Skorzeny's house, Kolchak opens up a refrigerator and finds one of the bottles of blood stolen from the hospital. The bottle is labeled, "Richards, Benjamin". This appears to be a leftover prop from The Immortal: Pilot (1969), a TV-movie (later a series, The Immortal (1969)) about a man named Ben Richards whose blood makes him immune to aging and disease.

Nice little made for TV (ABC) film about Kolchak (McGavin), a washed-up reporter in exile in Las Vegas, looking for a vampire who everybody is convinced is just a psycho. Some good scares, funny moments, and a healthy criticism of the establishment Vegas are all patched into the wonderful Matheson's script. Nice cheezy music and period cars are also a plus. Was turned into a short-lived TV series.
