Carl Kolchak: Now, wait just one minute. If you put me someplace against my will and something happens to me, you're gonna have to write a new chapter in the Maritime Code, or my editor's name is not Antonio Vincenzo!
Captain Julian Wells: Your editor... Release him - not here, outside!

A Really Entertaining Episode
3 May 2018 | by gregoryamorrisonSee all my reviews

-This is fun stuff..

-While the werewolf mask is something straight out of Lon Cheney's closet (an homage, maybe?), it's an entertaining story and the usual character chemistry is there between Kolchak (McGavin) and his editor (wonderfully played by Simon Oakland) along with David Gautier in a pretty priceless performance as "Mel"- an amped-up swingin' 70s hipster let loose on a cruise ship (Chicago??! ALRIGHT!!!)- and a youngish Eric Braeden (better known to some as Victor Newman on "The Young and the Restless") who's great as the darkly intense and imperious NATO officer/werewolf (Don't you humor me with pills!).

-It's well-worth a watch or few.
