PRETTY GOOD! NICE MIXTURE OF TWO EPISODES OF KOLCHAK
27 May 2000 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I have this movie which someone in my family taped in the early 80s off of TV. I just saw it again on TV and went on an all out search for the tape. I found it and viewed the whole thing.

SUMMARY: Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin- "The Night Stalker", "The Night Strangler") is a INS news reporter who stumbles upon first a ghost known as the "Doppleganger" who mysteriously is a ghost who starts people on fire in their sleep. Then Kolchak comes to a Monawhatzit (not the real name) a ancient being that feeds off peoples energy after killing them.

Great movie, I wish this was released on VHS or DVD.
