Kolchak: The Night Stalker - episode 19 (Legacy of Terror)
release year: 1975
genre: TV horror/suspense
viewing setting: home DVD, 12/21/05
what Kolchak faces in this episode: Modern-day Aztec cultists who are taking hearts from people.
impressions: Not bad. There wasn't much of the supernatural here (aside from the person behind the whole thing) but rather a small group of oddly-garbed warriors who just like to cut peoples' hearts out of their chests. I can't tell you much more without ruining the plot twists, but it's fairly entertaining. Kolchak does an unusually good job of completely disobeying his boss Vincenzo this time. Two notable guest stars: Erik Estrada is a strangely care-free playboy-type, and Sorell Booke (Boss Hogg in The Dukes of Hazzard is a taxidermist with a cultured accent.
