Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 33 ratings.
Absolutely the scariest of all of the T.V. series from the Golden Age of Television. Doesn't insult the viewers intelligence with the camp and somewhat light comedy that ruined some of 'The Twilight Zone' episodes. John Newland is a charismatic and likable guide into the unknown. Tales are straightforwardly suspenseful and always build to an eerie climax. Very much worth a view!
One Step Beyond should have been remembered much more highly than the Twilight Zone. There are something like 50 episodes. I hope Alpha will continue the series
Welcome to what is remembered by me as the creepiest thing that was ever aired! Unlike its contemporary, "The Twilight Zone", "One Step Beyond" didn't comfort the viewer by using the supernatural ro tell morality tales, but built a conventional drama, with realistic characters toward an inexplicable climax. Each story reminds one of the short horror takes of Ambrose Bierce, leaving the viewer hanging in terrified perplexity. Alpha, this deserves a dozen more volumes!
