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.

Voodoo Chilling
15 August 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Voodoo is the main feature of this classic x-files episode.Suspicious incidents linked to ongoing tensions at a immigration processing center are occurring.The army run the center and a hardline,brutal stance is enforced by Colonel Wharton(Daniel Benzali).He believed the Haitian immigrants to be troublemakers. Relations between the guards and inmates are intense and Colonel Wharton is quick to deny any wrong doing on his behalf when Mulder and Scully investigate. An original take on voodoo,an excellent performance from Daniel Benzali and quality directing makes this a definite must see for any x-files fans. The ending is simply stunning.From to start to finish your hooked
