The Succubus
10 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Carl Kolchak(Darren McGavin) investigates the strange murders of healthy young men who died of apparent heart attacks, all accompanied by the deaths of young women under strange circumstances. Turns out to be the result of a succubus, which is a female demonic spirit unleashed when an ancient stone tablet is discovered abroad and brought back to a Chicago college. Carl must persuade the disbelieving professor(played by Andrew Prine) in charge to destroy the tablet in order to stop the demon. Effective episode once again overcomes fantastic premise by fine direction and acting. Keenan Wynn makes a welcome return as police captain Joe "Mad Dog" Siska.
