Night Visions is a Twilight Zone-esque horror anthology series that ran for 13 episodes in 2001. Each episode features two half-hour stories, generally with a Twist Ending. Henry Rollins introduces each story and provides some kind of Aesop at the end.

Tropes used in Night Visions include:

"Now he's coming through the woods, now he's coming through the yard, now he's coming up the stairs..."

  • Tomato in the Mirror: "My So-Called Life and Death" ends with the main character realizing that the man she thought was a ghost is actually alive, and it's her and her family who are dead.
  • Unwanted Revival: In "After Life," a man who revives during his own funeral misses the perfect, beautiful heaven he had moved on to.
