Trivia

This is the fourth time Mulder and Scully face a demonic antagonist (after The X-Files: Die Hand Die Verletzt (1995), The X-Files: All Souls (1998), and The X-Files: Terms of Endearment (1999)). Although Donnie Pfaster was previously in The X-Files: Irresistible (1995), he was not thought to be a demon at that point, despite the subtle suggestions throughout. See more »

Satan's Manicurist Strikes Again
26 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Recently I was delighted to see Nick Chinlund in a dramatic role on "Ghost Whisperer." I had been blown away by his outstanding performance in the X-Files season 2 episode "Irresistable," and his performance was so creepy I feared he might have wound up typecast!

In this season 7 sequel to the earlier episode, necrophiliac and fetishist Donnie Pfaster vanishes from a maximum security prison. Born-again prison chaplain Orison (Scott Wilson) seems to have something to do with the mysterious escape, but what? As Pfaster murders again, Mulder fears for Scully, who Pfaster views as the one that got away!

This is a solid thriller episode, but the weird elements are just thrown in for effect and aren't really developed. How exactly is Pfaster more evil than Cigarette Smoking Man, Modell, or Ed Truelove (to say nothing of Phyllis Paddock, Betsy Monroe, 'Reverend' Mackey...?)?? I was delighted, but ultimately disappointed, by the Carlos Castaneda reference. The ending is also muddy. Still the suspense is good and the fight scene struck me as a positive element.
