Storyline

A series of brutal murders all share a particularly grisly characteristic: each victims has his or her heart cut out, much like a human sacrifice. Kolchak discovers that the murders are all connected to a modern-day Aztec cult that has been preparing for an apocalypse for centuries. Kolchak tries to stop the final sacrifice from being made, but he soon discovers that the mummified corpse of the cult's leader may not be as inanimate as it appears. Written by acidxian

Quotes

Tony Vincenzo: It says here the Andrews family changed their name from Arguello. And they're from Jalisco, and the hotel chain started in Veracruz.
Carl Kolchak: It's Ha-lisco, Tony, not Ja-lisco.
Tony Vincenzo: Oh, excuse me, Jose. I don't care if they came from Hersey City, New Hersey! There are Mexicans there too, but none of them are Aztecs.

The Aztec Cult
10 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Carl Kolchak(Darren McGavin) investigates the brutal unsolved murders of healthy people whose hearts were removed. It seems that an Aztec cult is offering them as sacrifices for their mummified warrior chief, needed every 52 years in a ten-cycle pattern, this being the ninth, and the fifth and final offering must be a willing one, and one man named Pepe Torres(played by Erik Estrada) seems to be that man, though if Carl has any say in the matter, may make him change his mind... Though not tightly plotted, this is still an interesting episode that makes amusing uses of its millennium theme and 52 year cycles - we'll have to watch out for the year 2027 it seems...
