    Night Visions

    ★★

    Hoop-Tober 4.0 movie #18

    A cop is assigned a partner with psychic abilities in order to find a deranged killer.

    While Night Visions is a decent movie, it isn't terribly remarkable or memorable. It's interesting that Craven would make something great and then put out something like this.

So he travels to a nearby abandoned temple for shelter, which he is a little too dense to realize is haunted. He meets a powerful swordsman there and eventually crosses paths with an enchanting ghost woman. What follows is a…
