Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a soldier working at a Haitian refugee camp. He drove his car into a tree and his death has been ruled a suicide but the man's wife simply doesn't believe he would have done that. Their investigation unearths rumors that the camp commander, Colonel Wharton, may be systematically abusing some of the detainees. There are also rumors of voodoo and curses but neither agent is prepared when someone completely unexpected suddenly appears. They get help from a young lad in the camp, Chester Bonaparte, but there are secrets in the camp that they may never solve. Mr. X warns Mulder that the military may be behind it all.

Goofs

Near the start (in the car with Jack McAlpin's photo file) Mulder refers to Private Jack McAlpine as "John". The first scene with the agents and Mrs McAlpin has her saying "Jake used to tells these jokes..." Thereafter the name "Jack" is used consistently by all. See more »

Voodoo refugees
23 October 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I know that the summary is not very impressive, but this chapter is. At the beginning of this chapter, a soldier working on a refugee camp crashes after watching some disturbing images of himself.

This would seem like a suicide of a paranoid soldier, or drug addiction, or something similar. But a voodoo-related symbol marked in the tree the soldier crashed on leads to thing into something else.

The refugee camp is being commanded by some international rights law-breaking militar, and the Haitians there are taking it's revenge.

Finally, Mulder and Scully are having to bypass some serious hazardous situations, including the fact that they'll have to fight agains the same symbol found in the tree.
