Overview

Everyone's favorite investigative journalist returns to DVD to take on the supernatural in MGM/UA's double feature release of The Night Stalker and The Night Strangler. Each feature is presented in 1.33:1 full-frame as originally aired -- and it's hard to imagine them looking better than they do on this disc. The image is crisp and clean on both features, with clean transfers showing little evidence of digital artifacting or age. Dolby Digital Mono audio is bold and free of any notable distortion or hiss. Though fans of the series won't likely expect many bonus materials on this fairly bare-bones release, MGM/UA has seen fit to include a pair of revealing interviews with producer (and Night Strangler director) Dan Curtis. Running at a combined length of approximately 20 minutes (the interview on The Night Stalker side being the longer and more detailed of the two), the interviews find a lively Curtis discussing everything from the origins of Kolchak to Bob Cobert's memorable score and his experiences directing The Night Strangler. This is a great addition to the collection of any Kolchak fan.

Two great movies starring Darren McGavin. These both helped launch the Kolchak tv series. Both are great movies and should be watched before seeing the tv show.

The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler are both well worth watching. While both have drawbacks, (Night Stalker has less humor and Night Strangler is a little more predictable)the pluses more than compensate. I'm waiting for the complete series Kolchak: The Stalker to make it to DVD!
