Storyline

Kolchak is witness to a bizarre manifestation when an unseen force decimates a building and causes a cache of lead ingots to vanish into thin air. He soon draws a connection between the disturbance and a series of incidents where both animals and human beings are turning up dead, the marrow mysteriously sucked out of their bones.

User Reviews

My favorite of the series, quit imaginative and unique, very X-files like.
5 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Obviously, since Kolchak pre-dates X-files, the influence is in the direction of Kolchak to X-files, and this episode is the one that bears that influence the most. A unique storyline in regards to the type of alien visitors and what their purpose is in visiting Earth, and the eventual discovery of these invisible invaders existence makes this my favorite of the series. As always, Kolchak's determined spirit and undeterred methods make for the typical conflict with authorities, but in this one, that conflict is much more subdued and believable as the police bosses are as much in the dark as he, and prone to benefit from what Kolchak learns on his own. Also, there are not the silly aspects that mar some of the other Kolchak episodes present here, so this one is totally enjoyable.
