For tonight’s televised horror, we have the tenth episode of Night Visions!
Night Visions was an anthology show that aired in 2001. Each episode featured two different stories and was hosted by Henry Rollins.
Our first story was directed by Thomas J. Wright and is called Hate Puppet. It’s about a man who can’t figure out why everyone hates him. In some ways, this story almost seems prophetic. In 2001, I imagine it was shocking to think of someone suddenly being hated by complete strangers. Today, we just look at that type of behavior and say, “Well, that’s 2017 for you…”
Our second story, Darkness, was directed by Ian Toynton and tells the story of a man who inherits a house but soon learns that maybe it would have been better if he hadn’t.
Like many anthology series, Night Visions was always an uneven show but I think these episode are always fun to watch in October.
