Necklace of evil.
29 October 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Each episode of "One Step Beyond" claims that these supernatural stories are true. Yeah...and I am the Easter Bunny. Still, some of the shows are quite entertaining...even if I am very dubious about the voracity of the programs.

This story is told by a Mexican bartender, so it's truthfulness is beyond question. It's about a cursed necklace. The story begins with a surly rich older woman about to go out with her gigolo boyfriend. Soon, she after putting on her beloved necklace, she begins choking and dies. Then, the lady who inherited the necklace dies as well. And, the next lady...the same fate awaited her. Apparently, what we have is a case of a nasty and cursed expensive piece of jewelry.

Overall, a mildly interesting story...mildly. Nothing particularly special here...pretty much more of the same.
