Audience Reviews for The Night Strangler

A excellent sequel to the thriller "The Night Stalker," which stands as one of the highest rated made-for-TV films ever made. Darren McGavin reprises his newspaper reporter role of Carl Kolchak, in a superb performance. This time tracking a story in Seattle, Washington, where a mysterious nocturnal strangler has been murdering young women, and removing small amounts of blood from the top of there skulls. Good creepy fun, with good supporting performances from Richard Anderson, John Carradine, Wally Cox, and Margaret Hamilton.
