William Marshall portrays title role with a flourish and gets first rate support right down the line: Vonetta McGee, whom he believes to be his reincarnated wife; Thalmus Rasulala, a black doctor who hits upon mystery of the rash of murders in LA; and Gordon Pinsent, homicide lieutenant who learns the hard way that murders are the work of vampires.
