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

Neech Manley Is Back....
6 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a very underrated episode. Most people compare it to Chris Carters first directed episode 'Duane Barry ' which just happens to be one of the most famous x files of all time.

But 'The List' is a very good episode! More of a dark thriller than totally supernatural , a man who has been on death row for 11 years is finally executed , but not before saying he was going to come back and kill 5 people.

Of course in the prison Neech was held in guards start dying and Mulder and Scully are called in. Of course its not just as simple as Neech is back and is killing people. There is a much darker force at work as the prison warden appears to be beating inmates to death to force them to tell him who was on Neech's list.

This obviously pushes the body count up , and when 5 people are dead Mulder and Scully admit defeat and leave. This is the point when the evil warden finally meets his end as he is driving and catches a glimpse of Neech is his mirror. The warden then proceeds to crash into a tree in particularly gruesome style with eerie music.

There are some other bits of the story which i find a tad unnecessary eg. the whole Neech's wife and the prison guard. But anyway a great episode that is guaranteed to chill you to the bone.
