Talk about your bad day at the office … Carl Kolchak is a newspaper reporter with a unique ability to discover the supernatural causes of the stories he covers – but his boss won’t believe him.

Kolchak: The Night Stalker (1974-75)

A delightful horror series on ABC, Kolchak’s stories eventually moved to “Movie of the Week” status. Eventually, the production was cancelled when star Darren McGavin asked to be released from his contract. Three unproduced stories were eventually turned into a series of comic books in 2003.


Here’s a quick summary:

Carl Kolchak is a reporter for a Chicago newspaper. Through more accident than design he ends up investigating homicides, many of which involve supernatural forces. Ultimately, rather than reporting on the crimes, he solves them.
