YMMV / Night Visions

  • Esoteric Happy Ending: "The Maze" ends with our Heroine going on a date with the Hero. However, the world will still be destroyed by a meteor next year. The host even says "Nothing lasts forever kids, try not to forget that."
  • Nightmare Fuel: This being a horror anthology, there's a good deal of them, but here's a brief list of some of the worst ones.
    • The ending to "A View Through a Window" is by far one of the biggest in the whole series, made worse by just how unexpected it is. Mood Whiplash doesnt even begin to describe it.
    • The twist in "Truck Stop" where it turns out it's a twist on the old Cannibal Clan concept. The people arent cannibals, but they do kill travellers and turn them into gaudy souvenirs for other dumbass tourists. The workshop underneath the truck stop is really disturbing.
    • The Cruel Twist Ending of "Afterlife". Not to mention how mentally unbalanced the man is after he's revived, considering it to be a good thing to kill his family so they can join him in "heaven".
    • The crewman having his head devoured in "Cargo".
  • The Scrappy: Sally Osgood from "Neighborhood Watch", she's so quick to suspect the worst of the alleged molester that some wish that she was the one that shot the man, instead of her husband. Thus turning the ending into a Karmic Twist Ending.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The episode "Neighborhood Watch" shows that taking the law into your own hands is a terrible idea and just because you hear ugly about a person, you should never assume that they are guilty.
    • "The Maze" delivers a pretty important one at the end. Nothing lasts forever, and you never know when the end might come, so dont put off your dreams, because you might not get another chance at living them.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Black Flag front man and standup comic Henry Rollins...as the host of a horror anthology?
