Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called in by a local New Hampshire Sheriff when there is evidence of a satanic cult operating in his town. One teen has already died and paranoia has now gripped everyone there. There is little doubt that a group of teenagers did go off into the woods to perform some type of ceremony but Scully in particular scoffs at any suggestion they were anything more than kids acting out. As the investigation progresses however it becomes apparent that some of the staff are involved in devil worship but the danger it turns out lies outside the group. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

After Mulder sees water going down a water fountain drain, he tells Scully that the Coriolis effect would cause water to go down the drain clockwise in the northern hemisphere. While this is not true, it is also not consistent with popular myth that the Coriolis effect would cause water to drain in the same rotation as cyclones, i.e., in a counter clockwise manner in the northern hemisphere.

Goofs

Mulder points out that the water in the drinking fountain is draining in the wrong direction, due to the Coriolis effect. The Coriolis effect occurs only in ocean currents, not toilets nor sinks. See more »

One of the best episodes of the series
28 March 2008 | by (atlanta) – See all my reviews

I love this one! It is so scary! I'm a teacher and that Mrs. Paddock sub even creeps me out! The whole episode delves into the witch hunt of the 90"s-are children in America being abused by Satanists? I was so glad Scully describes the efforts that the FBI had put into investigating this, yet no evidence was ever found to substantiate those wild accusations. So many lives were ruined by "false memories", etc. I, for one, was glad that the "X Files" addressed it. Remember dissecting a pig in Biology class? Yuck! If it had screamed at me I would have totally lost it! I did feel sorry for the stepfather when the python got him in the basement-I couldn't believe Mulder chained him up there. Mrs. Paddock was so creepy. So what was the truth in that episode? The evil school board got what they deserved.
