A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future.
Carl Kolchak was a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service, and a trouble magnet for situations involving the supernatural. Kolchak turned his investigative skills to vampires, werewolves, zombies and all manner of legendary creatures, but in the end he always failed to convince his skeptical editor, Tony Vincenzo, that the stories weren't products of Kolchak's own overworked imagination.

Many of the stories take place in the winter months, but there is never any snow, and even if there was no snow, it is highly unlikely one would be driving a convertible with the top down during the winter months in Chicago. See more »

I just checked out the new ABC series clips. Not impressed, looks more like Fox's Millennium. I wish that a remake would be closer to the original. I think the shows success was due to Kolchaks "weakness" and his non-conformist ways. He wasn't good looking(couldn't sweet talk the ladies), no money(wore the same suit, drove the same crappy car), not athletic(I cant recall the number of times hes stumbled or tripped while being pursued) and he wasn't a young buck who could resort to a punch or a kick, no he was just a stumbling sometimes bumbling middle aged guy who thought outside of the box. My favorite episode was the one where the monster appeared as the person you trusted the most and Carl had to shot "Miss Emily" with the cross-bow. Oh well, there's always the Sci-Fi channel.
