  • A deadly problem keeps arising. Carl makes it his problem.

    Kolchak stumbles on a situation where a zombie is stalking and killing a certain group of people.

    Decent episode with a pretty straight-forward plot.

    Embodies the Kolchak series plot: Carl finds an unbelievable story. His editor tells him to get ahold of himself and not to write a crazy story. Police tell him to shut up and warn him not to upset the public with any crazy stories. Carl puts himself in danger going after the killer.

    It was kind of humorous how a certain character kept popping up in the story. No matter how many put downs he received, he just could not get the message. Kind of like Carl, in a very abstract way.

    As always, Carl get to the bottom of the story but cannot write the full truth about it.
