Laura Elizabeth Hall,
Night Visions is an anthology series similar to The Twilight Zone - some tales are supernatural, others are just commentaries on twisted human nature. Each hour episode is made up of two half-hour episodes aired back-to-back.
Come with me to a place of wondrous contradictions. A place that is silent and unstirring yet is restless and alive. A place of untold peace and boundless dread. Come with me into the very cradle of darkness where those who dwell, dwell alone!

This was indeed a great show. I have always loved horror/sci-fi/fantasy anthologies whether on TV or in comic book format. Ghost Stories was without a doubt one of the best, but also the most overlooked. The stories were always creepy, but also touching and thought provoking at times. Surprisingly, a couple of the Ghost Stories episodes were remade in the 2002 Twilight Zone series (hosted by Forrest Whittaker) that followed a couple of years later. One of the TZ episodes starred Usher, the other starred Portia Di Rossi. I mean, it's either that or the episodes were inspired by the same short stories. Rip Torn was surprisingly effective as the narrator and commentator in Ghost Stories. The stories were much more serious than most other anthology shows. The mood of the show was more like the Outer Limits. Unfortunately, this show didn't have a chance. Like most syndicated shows, it was given bad time slots and very little media attention. I wish they revive this show.
