  • Kolchak must stop a headless motorcycle rider from beheading people.

    Kolchak begins by investigating the murder of a cab driver who had his head cut off by someone on a motorcycle with superhuman strength using a sword. The cab dispatcher is put in a mental ward because he claimed that the rider had no head. Kolchak learns that the motorcycle the killer was riding was a Beezer from the 50's. Apparently the rider, Harold Baker, was killed by a rival bike gang in 1956 and is seeking revenge on the ones who were responsible for his death. The cemetery Baker was buried at was sold to a developer to build condos and while the bodies were being moved, Baker's head fell out of his coffin. Kolchak also has to deal with Captain Jonas, the youngest captain on the police force and one who has it in for Kolchak. Kolchak learns from a historian that during the French Reign of Terror, when many people were beheaded, many headless corpses that had lost their heads roamed around seeking revenge on those who had wronged them until the heads were reunited with the bodies. Meanwhile, Vincenzo is back from the hospital after having an ulcer. Apparently, all the stress from working at INS, most of it probably from Kolchak, is the cause of his ailment.
  • I liked this Episode.


    Chopper was my favorite. Here's a headless guy running around on a chopper. Killing the People that caused his death. It was caused by a prank gone bad. He's after the remaining gang members. Finely Kolchak finds the guys head in the garage in a paint can. Opens up the can and throws it a him. To stop him.
