The now unbelievably cheesey Night Stalker (1972) was, for a time, the top-rated made-for-tv movie, with its tale of a wiseass reporter chasing down a vampire in Las Vegas. It birthed a series, which scifi.com and others report will soon be remade, with Stuart Townsend as Kolchak. Frank Spotnitz, of The X-Files fame, will produce.
