Nightfall #38: “All-Nighter”

Don FrancksWe close the first season with another of the creepiest episodes of the series: Graham Pomeroy's "All-Nighter".

When it comes to serial-killers, NIGHTFALL's have some of the weirdest MOs. In "Dark Side of the Mind", it was Carl recording responses from his victims before killing them, then playing back the appropriate responses when needed to assuage worried friends and relatives. In this one, a cleanliness-obsessed murderer is compelled to wash and dry his victims in the large-capacity machines at all-night laundromats.

Elva Mai Hoover plays Cheryl, a worker at one of these laundromats who first encounters evidence of the murders, and Le Femme Nikita's Don Francks (photo left) plays Officer Charlie Burns, the local beat patrolman who takes on the investigation.

This episode is also a classic example of producer Bill Howell's fascination with using synth-rock production music in his soundtracks. It's one of the things that establishes NIGHTFALL's unique style.
