Originally under the sponsorship of the Alcoa company, One Step Beyond began its three-season "journey into the unknown" with this eerie episode, which like all subsequent episodes is based on a documented instance of paranormal activity. Virginia Leith (best remembed as the title "character" in the 1963 horror epic The Brain That Wouldn't Die is cast as newlywed bride Sally Conroy, who with her husband Matt arrives at the vacation resort where they plan to spend their honeymoon. Even though she has never been to this resort in her life, Sally recognizes everyone and everything there. Gradually, and to his mounting horror, Matt realizes that his new wife has been possessed by a malevolent spirit--and may never return to normal.
