The Norliss Tapes A newspaper publisher listens to the personal tapes of investigative reporter David Norliss, who has disappeared during an investigation. The tapes tell the story of that investigation, involving a recent widow whose late husband has been seen working in his private studio. As Norliss and the widow investigate, they unravel a plot involving Voodoo and the walking dead.
YIKES! One of the greats!
The Norliss Tapes When it came to dispensing chills on TV in the ’60s & ’70s, Dan Curtis was the man!
His Dark Shadows vampire soap opera was innovative, but it was THE NIGHT STALKER (1972) TV movie with Darren McGavin and its subsequent follow-up TV movie, THE NIGHT STRANGLER and Night Stalker TV series which earned him his reputation as a Big Time chill-despensing master.
Then came THE NORLISS TAPES…WHOA! This is one scary movie!
Up in beautiful, rainy Marin County, Roy Thinnes investigates the possibility that a recently deceased artist isn’t necessarily dead.
I’m not going to give away a thing other than to say that if scary movies are your thing, this one will ring your bell! Do not miss it.
A great TV movie.
One of the best movies of the 70’s
