Storyline

Horror anthology film created from two unaired final episodes of Night Visions, a horror anthology series hosted by rocker Henry Rollins. His sequences were cut for the movie. The movie has four segments. In "Patterns", Psychiatrist Dan Critchley has an unusual new patient called Martin. Martin, a once successful architect, believes that he has a contract with some kind of higher power that states that as long as he performs numerous small OCD-like rituals daily, the world won't end. Amused by this story, Dr. Critchley decides to put Martin's belief to the test. In "The Maze", shut-in college student Susan Thornhill goes through the campus' hedge maze to get to her class. However, what she finds on the other side is a world void of people. When she reaches her class, she finds corpses of several students and the only living person there is her friendly music teacher, who's becomes psychotic and tries to kill her. Has the world gone mad or is there an even more terrifying explanation? ...

This isn't a movie, it's two episodes of Night Visions
4 September 2002 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

The Sci-Fi Channel promoted this as an original movie, however, except for the titles and end credits, they had absolutely nothing to do with its creation. All they did was take two unaired episodes of the short-lived Fox anthology series Night Visions, remove the intro's and commentary by Henry Rollins and put their name on it.

As for the content of this 'movie', it contains 4 separate stories (each Night Visions episode contained 2 stories), the first 3 of which I thought were quite good, while the last was merely ok. They are;

Patterns - Stars Malcolm McDowell as a patient who is obsessed with performing various gestures and patterns which he believes will cause something terrible to happen if he stops.

The Maze - Thora Birch finds her way through a hedge maze on a college campus only to discover the world changed when she emerges from the other side.

Harmony - A stranger arrives in a small town that seems to fear music.

Voices - A woman who works in a court gains the ability to hear the thoughts of one of the men involved in a trial.

Not a bad selection of stories, but I would have preferred them to just air Night Visions rather than trying to pretend they created this movie, which didn't fool anyone. If you get the chance, watch the Night Visions episodes instead.
