The Vampire

Night StalkerIn the desert outside Las Vegas, a traveller inadvertently spills blood upon a forgotten grave and…something crawls out. In Chicago, Kolchak gets wind of a trail of murders involving blood draining, and manages to wrangle his way into a trip to Los Angeles, where the trail leads. He finds that Catherine Rowlins, a victim of Janos Skorzeny, the vampire he confronted in Las Vegas, has been resurrected. She now pursues her former career as a call girl while using her customers as a food supply. With the aid of a local real estate agent, Kolchak tracks Rowlins to her lair for a final fiery hillside confrontation.
