    I remember seeing this episode as a kid and it scared me half to death. As with most episodes of One Step Beyond this one relied on the action/re-actions of the actors for the fear factor. We never really did see the 'spot' until the very end when it has transformed into the face of his dead wife with the "exact look on her face when she realised she had been poisoned." When the husband showed it to his lover she fainted, and when I saw the face on the wall my heart skipped a beat. And of course the eerie music added to the scare. A gteat episode. But if you're prone to nightmares don't watch it alone and just before bedtime.moreless
  • I thought an older woman was in this, her actress name Mimi something??

    This episode is very special to me, because I saw it when I was ten years old. I remember it scaring me half to death, and I had nightmares for a long time afterwards. That woman scrubbing away at a spot on the wall, and it growing larger. At the end when the creepy music starts, she decides to come downstairs with a candle or lantern and the spot had grown into something horrific! I want this episode. I hope more eppies of "One Step Beyond" will be released soon.moreless
