Dana Scully: That's certainly one question. I've got many.
Fox Mulder: "Mulder, why are we here?"

The Voodoo That You Do Do
18 March 2006 | by alex-ross77See all my reviews

Five years after Mulder & Scully dealt with black magic in Season 2's disappointing Fresh Bones, Vince Gilligan, John Shiban and Frank Spotnitz write a spooky X-File dealing with Oral Peattie, an old man who practises hex craft on a doctor's family for revenge. I really enjoyed this episode because it features some horrifying scenes (rag dolls being burnt in the microwave resulting in victims dying under similar circumstances etc.) and for the chilling climax right at the end.

Definitely one of the most scariest episodes of Season 7 and one of my all-time favourites. My advice: Don't watch it alone in the dark!
