The Skeptic
13 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Third episode of this series is first-rate, as Lin McCarthy plays Arthur Douglas, a skeptical man who nonetheless agrees to have his fortune told by a psychic(played by Jocelyn Brando) at a cocktail party in a ritzy New York apartment. She foretells a dark fate for him on a train with a beautiful woman(played by Paula Raymond) who just may kill him - which is strange, because he does indeed take the train back home soon after, and there is such a woman, though of course things may not be all that they are foretold... Eerie offering is among the best from the series, with surprising and effective story turns and direction by host John Newland.
