As I mentioned in foreword to Cryptworld, Darren McGavin as Carl Kolchak was a huge inspiration for me growing up. I loved “The Night Stalker” and “The Night Strangler” movies and “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” regular TV series, and I still bring out the DVDs and watch them on occasion. While doing some research this morning, I was amazed to find out there was a THIRD Carl Kolchak TV movie scripted out that was titled “The Night Killers”! Here is what Wiki says about this movie:
Entitled "The Night Killers" and set in Hawaii, the script had Tony Vincenzo hiring Kolchak to work for him. Once again Kolchak discovers a cover up—this time involving a mysterious UFO, a nuclear power plant and important people being murdered and replaced by androids. Kolchak ties all of this together believing that the aliens on the UFO landed on Earth intending to set up a colony and replacing key government figures with these androids to assist them in their secret colony.
Excited by the discovery, I went online and found the script for this unproduced movie at www.darrenmcgavin.net! So I wanted to share this with other Kolchak fans out there. Click on Carl below to be taken to the Unproduced Night Stalker Scripts page:
On this same page are the plot synopsis and rough scripts for the three unproduced episodes for Kolchak: The Night Stalker TV series too! Read further down the page for the manuscripts for the lost episodes “Eve of Terror”, “The Get of Belial”, and “The Executioners”!
