''American Horror Story'' to ''Alfred Hitchcock Presents'': Nearly 60 years of chills
KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER
''Has-been big-city reporter'' Carl Kolchak (Darren McGavin) isn't afraid to do some of his own investigative journalism, even if it means losing the respect of his co-workers or losing his job. But while authorities deny the existence of Native American bear spirits, headless motorcyclists, high-fashion witches, and giant lizards, for Kolchak, it's just another day on the job. Though the series often veered from horror into black comedy, it still summoned up a few scares, and inspired its much more successful successor, The X-Files.
