After death row prisoner Napoleon "Neech" Manley is executed in Florida's electric chair, a number of prison guards are the victims of gruesome murders. Scully and Mulder are called into the case and there are rumors in the prison that there is a death list with five names on it. They learn from Manley's widow Danielle that he had promised to return from the grave and exact revenge but they look for for a less supernatural explanation for the events. They think they've found when they learn that Danielle has been living with one of the guards, Vincent Parmelly. For Mulder however, the final explanation just doesn't sit well. Written by garykmcd

A waste of good performances and atmosphere
10 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The List is an episode full of wasted potential. The atmosphere is incredible inside the prison with eerie colors, lights, and camera work. The supporting performances are also very strong, with the short performance of the actor who played the dead inmate Neech really standing out.

The problems come in when it comes to the plot and the pacing. The basic plot is that Neech was a death row inmate who was very interested in reincarnation, and upon his death promised to return and avenge himself by killing five people who treated him unjustly. While there are a few small twists and red herrings, this is the basic plot, and we get it in the first five minutes. The episode is intended to be a thriller, but that is where the problems lie, because unlike episodes like D.P.O, there is never a sense of danger, causing the episode to get very slow for the middle twenty minutes or so. The first fifteen minutes are good by virtue of the atmosphere still being "new" to the viewer, and the last ten are very special, and earned the episode at least one of the stars I gave it, and save this episode from being a total stinker.
