The Youth Killer

Night StalkerA series of unidentified elderly bodies are turning up around Chicago, dying of natural causes. Only Kolchak believes that they may be connected to the disappearances of a series of young swingers. He finds out that the disappearances had one thing in common – each was a member of an exclusive dating service run by a mysterious Helen. A taxi driver and former Greek professor identifies Helen from a photo as Helen of Troy, whose face launched a thousand ships. She is able to maintain her youthfulness by sacrificing to the gods the youth of physically perfect victims. Each of the victims is given a special ring as part of their membership, which marks them as a sacrifice to the gods. Carl accidentally dons one of the rings, and must confront Helen in her modern-day Greek shrine before she ages him to death as well.
