Storyline

A ghostly knight is making a habit out of executing certain persons responsible for the 'desecration' of his burial site; that is, anybody involved with the creation of a restaurant/disco near the knight's resting place. Kolchak catches on when he happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses one of the murders with his own eyes. An axe that's been blessed is the only thing that will stop the ghost from exacting his gruesome revenge. Written by acidxian

Fright Knight
10 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Carl Kolchak(Darren McGavin) investigates the murders of people who were killed by implements associated with a knight, and when Carl witnesses this first hand, realizes that the spirit of a French Knight has indeed risen from its grave to inhabit its suit of armor from a museum, and kill all those associated with the building of a restaurant/disco at its burial place. Only the use of a blessed battle-Axe will have any effect on the knight, and Carl is the only one who can wield it... Plot is fun though derivative of the first episode of "Scooby Doo, Where Are You"! Helped by good guest acting by John Dehner and Hans Conried.
