The Night Stalker (1972)

Not exactly a pilot but "inspiration" for the TV series that followed two years later.

Great script co-authored by Richard Matheson. Produced and directed by people who really knew how to get quality by doing TV, rather than trying to imitate theatrical movies on TV. Can't see it with fresh eyes today because the series itself just repeated the formula to death but the original was really good.
