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

Did you really think you could call up the Devil and ask him to behave?
7 April 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Die Hand Die Verletzt (German for "the hand that wounds") is another gem from the pen of Glen Morgan and James Wong, the X-Files writing duo. This episode was directed by the excellent Kim Manners. It's his direction that helps this particular episode shine. I really liked at the beginning of the episode where the shot cuts from a hand on a teenage boy's throat to Scully's hand dropping the sheet covering the dead boy's body. Also, Scully's reaction as the toads drop from the sky is priceless. Although the PTC are the devil worshipers, Mrs. Paddock the substitute steals the show as the Devil(?). She manages to stay one step ahead of the the PTC and the FBI. This episode has a high scariness factor, so you might want to consider whether you watch it late at night or not. Beware that there is some disturbing subject matter regarding child abuse. So if you're in for a good scare, Die Hand Die Verletzt is the episode for you.
