DIE HAND DIE VERLETZT
A MURDER WITH RITUALISTIC TRAPPINGS BRINGS MULDER AND SCULLY INTO A SMALL TOWN WHOSE OCCULT SECRETS DATE BACK SEVEN GENERATIONS.
The school board of a small New Hampshire town closes a routine meeting with an invocation to the Lords of Darkness; a teenager is killed in a ritualistic manner. Mulder and Scully check out the local sheriff's fears of a "cult" operating in the vicinity, and discover that the town and high school are the focus of rumors of witchcraft and devil-worship going back seven generations. Meanwhile, the hysterical confessions of abuse and intimidation from several students lead them to the town's most upstanding and conservative citizens. A weird substitute teacher, a troubled teenager and a basement painted the color of blood all figure in their search for a demonic killer. Mulder and Scully are taken by surprise, and are led to slaughter in the school gymnasium.
