Kolchak: The Night Strangler (1973)

The second film is much like the first, except that it's set in Seattle because, if you remember, Kolchak had to leave Nevada. The similarity is worked into the plot, however, so it's not something that drags the experience down.
Elsewhere, the intrepid reporter with the distinctive hat once again provides his welcome hard-boiled(ish) voice-over as he investigates the serial murders of women who were killed under mysterious circumstances.
The atmosphere on the darkened streets is excellent. And the final act, while heavy on the dry ice, is captivating because of its unusual surroundings.
