Coeds are being drained of their blood on a small college campus, the same place where the departed Professor Pendergast had been studying the hypothesis that vampires suffer from a blood disease. And since he’s been seen at two of the attacks…
David Wells and Frank Simmons (Hal Linden and Mike Farrell, great casting!) are conducting patrols of the campus, trying to protect the female students from whatever killer is on the loose. And yes, perhaps Wells could be that killer.
This episode is based on “Pendergast” by Elizabeth M. Walter, whose “Traveling Companion” was turned into an episode of this show, as well as “The New House” and “The Concrete Captain” also being based on her stories. She also had “The Spider” appear on Night Gallery. The screenplay comes from Mark Weingart and Richard Matheson, while the direction was by Don McDougall, who also made Riding With Death and the “At the Cradle Foot” episode of this series.
