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 »

Pretty bad, but it could have been worse
6 February 2010 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The first clue that should tell you that "Night Vision" is not a good movie is that it was made by Texas filmmakers - Texas has made more than its share of bad movies. The second clue is that it has Cynthia Rothrock in its cast, and no (American) movie with Cynthia Rothrock is any good. The third clue is with Fred Williamson producing this movie, whose Po' Boy production company has made a string of bad movies. Yes, "Night Vision" is indeed a bad movie. In fairness, I will say that for a VERY low budget, the movie looks good. The colors are strong and there is some decent night shooting. And there are at least SOME production values, something you can't say for all Fred Williamson movies (such as with Williamson's "Black Cobra".) But most of the rest of the movie is pretty pitiful. It's a slow, sluggish movie, even in the action scenes. (And speaking of action, why cast martial arts actress Cynthia Rothrock when she gets to do almost no martial arts?) The atmosphere is sterile. Scenes seem to be missing. And Fred is seen in his underwear twice! And Robert Forster is wasted; he made this the same time that he made "Jackie Brown", and I hope he worked on this mess before making the Tarantino movie.
