Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate a particularly gruesome murder at a hospital where a cosmetic surgery patient is butchered by the attending physician. The doctor who performed the operation has no idea why he did it and felt like he was possessed. While Scully looks for a scientific explanation Mulder feels witchcraft may have played a role. He finds 5 burned rings on the floor of the operating room which when joined together form a pentagram. As the uncontrolled killings continue, Mulder discovers a link between the victims' dates of birth and key dates on the witchcraft calendar. Written by garykmcd

Remind me not to get Plastic Surgery any time soon...
29 September 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of the X Files, I started following it at Season 7 in its airtime and followed it to the very end. In 2007 I rented all the seasons one by one and watched every episode. Of all the episodes, this is the most disturbing one I've ever seen.

Basically this is an episode about a hospital where plastic surgery goes horribly wrong. It begins with a kick to the teeth- the epic "liposuction" scene. Lots of gross stuff happens- A man cuts off his own face, a woman pukes up needles, etc. I love gore, but hell, this episode disturbed me in every way possible! In short, I never get disturbed, but this episode was extremely disturbing. I probably wouldn't watch it again because of how gross and disturbing it was. But it is a worthy episode in the series and worth watching at least once.
