Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a Marine working at a Haitian refugee camp. He drove his car into a tree and his death has been ruled a suicide but the man's wife simply doesn't believe he would have done that. Their investigation unearths rumors that the camp commander, Colonel Wharton, may be systematically abusing some of the detainees. There are also rumors of voodoo and curses but neither agent is prepared when someone completely unexpected suddenly appears. They get help from a young lad in the camp, Chester Bonaparte, but there are secrets in the camp that they may never solve. Mr. X warns Mulder that the military may be behind it all.

Beware Of Voodoo
14 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Fresh Bones has a major creep-out element to it. Voodoo is a very interesting subject in itself. What I like about this episode is that it shows a different aspect of voodoo. When I think of voodoo I think of sticking pins in dolls. Fresh Bones didn't have any of that, so it was a fresh spin on classic voodoo stories. Colonel Wharton is a very convincing bad guy. I also like the little boy who played Chester Bonaparte. Fresh Bones features atmospheric music that fits the mood of the episode. Towards the end of the episode, there's a very scary and intense scene involving Scully. And the end scene is quite chilling. Fresh Bones is a good scare that will make you not want to visit Haiti any time soon.
