Storyline

Kolchak faces another Native American monster, this one known as the Matchemonedo, when he learns of a series of mishaps taking place in a newly opened hospital. The construction of the hospital has awakened Matchemonedo, an invisible manifestation that causes ruptures in the building's constitution, electrical outbursts, and deaths that are seemingly caused by electrocution. Kolchak enlists the help of a reluctant Indian shaman to combat the rampaging force. Written by acidxian

Weakest of the Series
30 June 2008 | by (Bend, OR) – See all my reviews

I finally had the chance to see the "The Energy Eater" on Chiller, one of only a handful of original episodes I hadn't seen, despite the fact I'm old enough to remember the show from its original ABC run, the CBS late night run and the Sci-Fi run.

It's disappointing.

Is it just me or is the pacing S-L-O-W? It seems like they had enough material for about a 30-minute show and had to stretch it to fill the hour.

I'll agree with other observations about how episodes like Chopper and The Sentry suffer from poor effects and/or execution (excuse the pun), but at least the stories move along.

Anybody else feel the same?
