Watch Kolchak – The Night Stalker “Chopper” (1975)

Welcome back fright fans to another presentation of Saturday Frights! Tonight we return to walk the beat with ace news reporter Carl Kolchak with this 15th episode of the classic Kolchak – The Night Stalker TV series that originally ran from 1974 to 1975 on ABC. Follow that link above to listen to the Retroist’s podcast on the series in case you’ve never had the pleasure of watching the Night Stalker before.

This tale finds Kolchak on the case of what appears to be a headless figure on a motorbike with a sword…who seems to want to take revenge on a gang of former bikers from the 1950s by hunting them down and decapitating them! Can Kolchak get to the bottom of this supernatural mystery or will he lose his head over the story…literally?

Grab your favorite beverage and snack, turn down the lights and join us for Saturday Frights and the Night Stalker.

  1. I love this episode! Steve Boyum, the stunt driver who played the Headless Biker, is now a big TV director and works on shows like Supernatural, Revolution and Hawaii Five-O!
