Are these episodes of Kolchak: The Night Stalker or Stephen King novels?

Can you tell these creepy titles apart?

In April 1974, a young writer named Stephen King published his debut novel, Carrie. It would be the first of many creepy, gripping and sometimes downright strange stories written by one of the most prolific authors of all time.

Speaking of creepy and strange, five months after Carrie first came out, a new show about a Chicago reporter tasked with investigating the unexplainable premiered. It was called Kolchak: The Night Stalker and though it only ran for one season it has become a cult favorite among classic horror fans.

We’ve collected titles from both Kolchak episodes and Stephen King books. Can you guess what each name is from?

Watch Kolchak: The Night Stalker on MeTV!

2wrong as I hang my head in shame. Stephen King is my favorite author. Would love to meet him one day.

16/16 I think I got my love of Stephen King stories/books from my papaw. The Stand was my first and it only took about a week for me to read.

Greetings. I Love Kolchak The Night Stalker. Kolchak is unique; he thinks for himself.
He thinks on his feet and that has saved him many times. Kolchak oftimes is ignored by those in authority
much to their chagrin later on when Kolchak emerges Triumphant. A Great Show!
I watch it regularly.
GOD Bless.
