SYNOPSIS: A single American photographer named Rita Wallace moves into an old house in Paris
and sets about documenting "The Face of France" for her fashion magazine. A mysterious male "model"

COMMENTARY: "The Dark Room" is One Step Beyond's first out-and-out ghost story, the frightening
tale of a woman who encounters an angry ghost named Jean Gabon, but does not realize (at least at first)
that her visitor is an apparition . . .
