My name is Carl Kolchak, former reporter for INS, Chicago’s very own independent news service. In all my years of investigative journalism I’ve seen some pretty strange things. Today you’d simply look at them as amusing fodder for the national tabloids, but hear me out when I tell you…that they’re real. The Vampires, androids, ghosts, swamp creatures, monkeymen, and even Jack the Ripper; yes–every last one! Rather than jeopardize my former editor’s sanity with such sensational tales I simply left out the details for public consumption. Oh, I kept the real transcripts — conveniently tucked away from curious eyes in a file under the innocuous name: All Saints Archive. But now, happily retired, I believe I can finally release the full accounts…as I actually experienced them. Prepare yourself now for one of many cases from the All Saints Archive, or as I call them ‘The Night Stalker Incidents.’”
