Poor in just about every way.
15 April 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"One Step Beyond" always claimed to be based on real cases involving the supernatural. I always took this with a grain of salt and enjoyed the shows anyways. However, this one was hard to ignore because the story idea was so patently ridiculous.

Robert Loggia plays Tom Grant--a brooding piano player in a dive. When he sees his ex-girlfriend about to go out with a customer, something snaps and he kills her. While he did not get cut during this stabbing, he keeps seeing blood all over his hands--especially when he washes them. This drives him batty and eventually he turns himself in to the police.

This is a very heavy-handed episode. Loggia is a fine actor but here he seems ridiculous and fake. Fortunately, this didn't appear to harm his career and I'm assuming producers didn't see this episode--if they had, his film career might have ground to a halt!
