Supernatural Series One Step Beyond to be Released in One DVD Collector’s Set

Do you remember the TV series ONE STEP BEYOND? This is a kick ass weekly series that ran from 1959 to 1961, around the same time as the original TWIGHT ZONE series and a few years before NIGHT GALLERY. What set ONE STEP BEYOND apart from the other shows was that instead of creating fictional stories with mystical twists and turns like the more well-known sci-fi series of the time, ONE STEP BEYOND sought out “real stories” of supernatural events to be re-enacted. Now this trailblazing series is being released in a DVD collector’s set. Check out the press release:

Film Chest Media Group Proudly Presents 

One Step Beyond

The Series That Sparked the Paranormal Craze in the Late ’50s & Led the Way for the Twilight Zone

70 Spooky Episodes Featuring an Array of Legendary Actors 

Re-Captured in DVD Collector’s Set April 7th   

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — April 1, 2015 — For Immediate Release — One Step Beyond explores the amazing world of the unknown through dramatic re-enactments of mysterious “real life events.” Seventy of the 96 original episodes will be available April 7 in a special, six-disc DVD collector’s set from Film Chest Media Group.

Produced a year before the Twilight Zone, One Step Beyond – which ran on ABC for three seasons (1959-1961) – sparked the growing interest in paranormal suspense in the late 1950s. Rather than creating fictional stories with mystical twists and turns like the more well-known sci-fi series of the time, this program sought out “real stories” of supernatural events to be re-enacted. 

From ghosts and monsters to mysterious disappearances, each eerie episode presents storylines that defy common understanding of reality. No solutions to these mysteries were ever found, leaving viewers bewildered … wondering if the paranormal truly exists. 

Includes appearances by such iconic stars as Charles Bronson (Once Upon a Time in the West, The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape), Cloris Leachman (FOX’s Raising Hope, Young Frankenstein, The Beverly Hillbillies), Robert Loggia (Independence Day, Big, Scarface), Ross Martin (Dying Room Only, The Wild Wild West, The Great Race), Warren Beatty (Bulworth, Dick Tracy, Reds, Bonnie and Clyde), Robert Blake (Lost Highway, Money Train, Baretta, In Cold Blood), Suzanne Pleshette (The Birds) and Joan Fontaine (Ivanhoe, Suspicion).

Hosted by John Newland (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Peyton Place, Dr. Kildare), this set includes the most original episodes ever offered in a single package to date. BONUS: Episode guide with synopses. 

One Step Beyond is presented in full screen with an aspect ratio of 4 x 3 and original sound.
