Goofs

Like most traditional vampires Khorda is repelled by the sight of the cross, and is upset by Monk's Iron Cross necklace, which he tells him to take off. Monk never does, and is still wearing it later when Khorda attacks and kills him. How exactly Khorda overcomes Monk's protection is never explained. See more »

Quotes

Monk: "You know what you all are? You're all a bunch of friggin' freaks and honkies! Every damn last one of you! I'm going to town to get me some steak and whiskey!"

A hippie vampire. Far out, man!
16 February 1999 | by (Livingston, NJ) – See all my reviews

A hippie vampire! There's really not much more to be said, save for an excellent performance by the underrated Quarry as the lead. This was a Saturday afternoon staple during the 70's on NYC local stations. I recommend it, if you can find it, but don't take it too seriously though.
