Spain released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Spanish ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Spanish ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Reporter Carl Kolchak is back and this time he is on the trail of a serial killer who is targeting dancers in the Seattle area. The strange thing about the killings is the fact that all the victims had some of their spinal fluid drained and that there was rotting flesh found around the victims necks. Soon Kolchak learns that similar killings have been occurring in the Seattle area every twenty-one years for over 100 years. The trail soon leads to Seattle's underground city and he winds up meeting the killer who tells him that he uses the spinal fluid for a elixir which has been keeping him alive. Unfortunately, it only lasts for twenty-one years and after that time period is up he must leave his abode and go looking for fresh victims. It is now up to Kolchak to stop this madman before he takes the elixir. ...The Night Strangler

The Voice is familiar: It belongs to reporter Carl Kolchak: "This is the story behind the most incredible series of murders to ever occur in the city of Seattle, Washington. You never read about them in your local newspapers or heard about them on your local radio or television station. Why? Because the facts were watered down, torn apart and reassembled, - in a word, falsified."

The Night Strangler is a made for TV movie sequel to the Night Stalker. It takes place in Seattle, Washington. Here Carl Kolchak is reunited with his old editor, the vocal Tony Vincenzo. In this case, Kolchak is investigating a series of murders of young women. With the help of a research clerk they uncover a series of serial murders going back nearly a century and repeating every 21 years, tracking down the perpetrator.

This sequel is excellent and one of the few good Jack the Ripper movies, with a unique twist. The film shows an extensive underground city. I took a trip to Seattle to see this, and it is not as extensive as the film.

Format: DVD
"This is the story behind one of the greatest manhunts in history. Maybe you read about it - or rather what they let you read about it probably in some minor item buried somewhere on the back page. However, what happened in Las Vegas between May 16 and May 28 of this year was so incredible that, to this day, the facts have been suppressed in a massive effort to save certain political careers from disaster and law enforcement officials from embarrassment. This will be the last time I will ever discuss these events with anyone. So, when you have finished this bizarre account, judge for yourself its believability. And then try to tell yourself, wherever you may be, it couldn't happen here."

Carl Kolchak is an old-school reporter - he wears a $2 straw hat, rubs city hall, the cops and his editor up the wrong way and will do anything to get a story. And boy, has he got a story - if only someone will believe him. Las Vegas doesn't just have an ordinary serial killer murdering women and robbing blood banks by night on its hands - this one is a genuine vampire...

One of the highest rated TV movies of its day and spawning a sequel and two TV series - one with star Darren McGavin and a short-lived 2006 revival with Stuart Townsend - The Night Stalker is a great mix of wisecracking newspaper story and supernatural thriller updated to the 70s with a cast peppered with veterans like Simon Oakland, Ralph Meeker, Claude Akins, Narrow Margin's Charles McGraw, The Maltese Falcon's Elisha Cook Jr and Cat People's Kent Smith, and it still works a treat.

Format: DVD
I first saw this in about 1975 on normal TV, I was about 7yrs old and a Hammer film fanatic, still am. I managed to get it from the USA about 2 years ago and 'The Night Stalker' still stands up well. A powerful guy snatching girls at nightfall with eyes of the devil and the power of 20 men, only Kolchak (Darren McGavin) has the nerve or general nosiness of a reporter to check it out. When he finally tracks the vampire down he wishes he hadn't because he is genuinely frightened and no one believes there is a vampire loose anyway. Supported by his gorgeous accomplice (Carol Lynley) Kolchak gets his man/thing in the end.

The Night Strangler story is a little weaker about a 120yr man living in a city below the streets who again is snatching girls. The similarity with this and the X-files is the episode of 'Toombs' in the modern series. The Night Strangler & Toombs or even 'IT' from Stephen King, appear every 20-30yrs to regenerate themselves to look young again by killing or feeding off humans to survive. The Night Strangler is played by 'Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman from Six Million Dollar Man)' there is also a rare appearance from a now old lady who played the 'wicked witch in the Wizard Of Oz' she plays an expert in the library who traces all the old records of previous similar crimes. All in all these are well worth a watch all over again !!!

Anything british or U.S. when it comes to 70's/80's tv or tv-movies is a must for me personally. Darren Mcgavin-RIP, gives a cracking performance as the no-nonsense sneaky reporter who has a penchant to seek out and release the truth...(no matter what the authorities say) into the unknown i.e. occultist-style murders/vampires/ufo's/elixure-searching immortals etc... These 2 T.V. movie spin-offs by far out-do the tv series that came just before. Shot in the same format as a columbo/quincy-style format, these are a purists of the genre. Disc 1 for those not in the know starts with Karl Kolchak (McGavin) writing a report and told in 'flashback-to present (albeit stiffled by the authorities) about his battle with a modern-day vampire after a string of young women in vegas keep cropping-up rather pale, via 2 puncture wounds in the neck, Kolchaks sometimes darkly-humoured-style battles with the vampire, the press, the police etc in some parts are quality. Disc 2 is equally fantastic....same format, same background music (for the purists like me lol) only this time after being sacked, set a year or so later in the brilliant city of seattle, where he traces similar murders dating back a 100yrs+ of yet again 'young women' only with some sort of cerabelum fluid missing. Turns out its being used by a chap thats been reappearing every 70-odd years to remake and use this to sustain himself regardless of the costs of innocent young lives, enter kolchak to the rescue, with some amazing footage of the old seattle streets several feet below the modern city which as a kid watching, was fascinated by and would love to visit if there was a tourist attraction. Disappointingly however there dosen't seem to a region-2 dvd version, so its a case of multi-region dvd players for any of us brits i'm afraid, otherwise true fans enjoy....
