Sucking in the 70's
25 August 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a sucker(pun intended)for 1970's vampires, including the epic Salem's Lot, Kolchak, Blacula, Fantasy Island, McCloud, and I'll add this episode of Starsky and Hutch as well, but with caution. There are many recognizable faces including John Saxon, Suzanne Somers, G.W. Bailey, and Phil Leeds; Somers and Leeds were surprisingly boring and added little. Even though I enjoyed this for the most part, there were some things that could've used more explanation or improvements, such as Rene Nadasy's(Saxon)true motive for the killings, and the way he runs to his next victim. Seeing a running vampire lessens the effect to this reviewer, even though the slo-mo was pretty cool. By the end of the episode, you may think that Nadasy was not a vampire, BUT he did ballet dancing perfectly with a bum leg, and jumped from one building to the next, surprising Hutch(David Soul), who scoffs at Starsky(Paul Michael Glaser)for having an open mind about vampires; ironically, 3 years later, Soul would very much believe in vampires in Salem's Lot, as Ben Mears, in 1979. The best aspect was probably Saxon's portrayal, and while nothing here was that scary, it's still always cool seeing vampires from that decade.
