February 3 1959.
** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: At a ritzy Manhattan cocktail party, a psychic name Ellen Larabee, who is capable of reaching
a hypnotic sleep, is goaded into predicting the future of a skeptic, Arthur Douglas. The fate she envisions
for him is a frightening one: a terrifying encounter on a train, and a meeting with a mysterious dark-haired
woman (armed with a knife!) who may just be Douglas's murderer.
COMMENTARY: A slowly dawning sense of horror permeates "Emergency Only", One Step Beyond's
second story in a row about precognition. An unsettling atmosphere of doubt hangs heavily as cocky skeptic
Arthur Douglas is driven to the point of hysteria because elements of a psychic's prophecy keep coming true . . .
