Creepy and well worth seeing.
6 March 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

As in other episodes of "One Step Beyond", the narrator (and director) John Newland claims that this story is based on a real crime, though I certainly have my doubts! The story begins with Mr. Marlow (Ross Martin) being acquitted of his wife's murder. However, the newspapers insist that he is guilty and his lawyer suggests he takes a vacation to get away from all this negative publicity. So he ends up in a small town and checks into a charming bed and breakfast. However, soon after he settles into this place, he sees something very strange—his own murder being played out in the mirror! Of course no one else sees it and he heads to the nearest bar to drink himself into oblivion. However, after a few drinks, the SAME murderer he saw in the mirror enters the bar! Marlow is naturally shocked and bolts from the place—and the stranger soon follows. What's up with this stranger and what will Marlow do now that he KNOWS the man is his killer? This is a very tense and exciting episode. It also had some very nice acting by Martin and it was nice to see him doing a role other than his one from "The Wild, Wild West". Worth your time and very well written.
