Spooky....but true?!
19 May 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The old TV series "One Step Beyond" was odd in that it claimed that the stories you were watching were real...or at least they are based on what people CLAIM happened involving the supernatural. As for me, I don't believe any of this...though I will admit that the show was well made and often enjoyable to watch.

In this story, Carl Archer (Charles Aidman) is an alcoholic who has destroyed his marriage. He's just gotten out of treatment for the drinking but his wife (Julie Adams) is not unusual for not believing he's changed....and wanting to take a wait and see attitude about the sobriety. In the meantime, a tragedy occurs when (WHY???) Carl's wife and son are exploring around an old mine...and here is where the supernatural comes into the story.

While Charles Aidman is a name few would remember, he was a terrific actor who did a lot of television work. Here the story works because he did a great job of it...and it didn't hurt that he was supported by Julie Adams and William Schallert. Overall, fascinating and with a nice twist....that still left me thinking 'nope...didn't happen'!
