In an eerie theme similar to shows such as "The Twilight Zone," Night Visions displays various stories. Some stories include the supernatural and the paranormal; others are simply creepy tales and twisted views of average human beings.
Each episode consists of two half-hour stories of mystery. Rock musician Henry Rollins opens and closes each half-hour section as the host of the show and only consistent member of the cast. Night Visions is an anthology series; none of the stories connect with each other in any way. They are all stories of completely different nature. From a story about an evil woman and her super intelligent dogs to a tale of killer shadows, Night Visions has all types of tales.
In total, Night Visions received one season before it was cancelled by its parent channel, FOX Network. It is still occasionally shown on FOX, as well as the Sci-Fi Channel, although the scheduling is inconsistent. "Fox's Night Visions," the episodes aired by FOX, ended with episode #20, entitled "Darkness." However, the show was not complete there. Over a year later, Sci-Fi Channel aired episodes #21-26 within a few days. These "Sci-Fi Night Visions" were never aired by FOX.
Sandra, deaf from birth, attempts to restore her hearing by agreeing to submit to a new type of surgery whose goal it is to repair damaged hearing. The surgery seemingly fails and Sandra walks away feeling the same as before. However, at her job in a justice court, she realizes she's not the same as always- she has the ability to hear people's thoughts. In court, she realizes that one of the officers is actually the guilty party, having framed the defendant and stolen the missing money in question at the hearing. Unfortunately, no one believes her. Sandra, determined to prove the officer (Bruce Malone) guilty, uses her knowledge from listening in to sneak into Malone's cash stash. When Malone returns, Sandra is pressed to make it out alive. She also manages to pierce even deeper into Malone's mind, where she finds some unexpected news.
