Trivia

In the movie Night Vision, there is a scene where the killer dumped the body of the kidnapped female victim in the parking lot of the fictional Channel 6 studios. That building used as the fictional Channel 6 studios is in fact an actual and still active TV station. The studio building that was used for this scene belongs to the CW Affiliate KDAF-TV CW 33. It is located at 8001 John Carpenter Freeway, in Dallas, Texas. When this movie was filmed, KDAF was under another affiliate, the WB Network. And prior to the WB Network, it was Dallas's first FOX affiliate. It was then known as FOX 33. If you carefully look at the top of the studio building when the van is approaching the entrance of the studios, you can see the WB 33 logo and the words KDAF Television. See more »

Goofs

The wooden box that O'Connor is trapped in has soft mesh sides, presumably so that she can breathe. But that meant she could have easily torn her way out at any time. See more »

Unlike most of the reviewers of this particular movie, I'm really not the much of a Cynthia Rothrock fan, to say the least. However when I saw that the movie had Fred Williamson and Robert Forster (both great actors), I just had to watch the film. Williamson is a Dakota Smith, an alcoholic cop who is demoted to scrubbing toilets with a toothbrush and even worse having to team up with Cynthia at the behest of the captain (Robert Forster). Forster is always watchable, it's just a crying shame that the movie itself is so damn trite and clichéd. It also features one of the least terrifying villains ever to be committed to celluloid. Williamson would return to the Dakota character in a few more films, the next one being "Down N Dirty"

Eye Candy: Nina Richardson shows some T&A; Mary Kapper goes topless
