Scully and Mulder are called in by a local New Hampshire sheriff when there is evidence of a satanic cult operating in his town. One teen has already died and paranoia has now gripped everyone there. There is little doubt that a group of teenagers did go off into the woods to perform some type of ceremony, but Scully in particular scoffs at any suggestion they were anything more than kids acting out. As the investigation progresses, however, it becomes apparent that some of the staff are involved in devil worship, but the danger, it turns out, lies outside the group.
