the x-files project: ep 2:21


the x-files

season 2, episode 21, “the calusari”

aired: 4.14.95


jesus, x-files, getting kind of morbid here, killing a child in the teaser scene? and coming off of a humorous episode, too. the macabre mood doesn’t end there. this episode about evil twins, exorcism, and demon children is downright grisly. on the plus side, we get the introduction of mulder’s friend, chuck burks, who is always a welcome addition in episodes to come and scully gets to witness some crazy shit, first hand. almost getting stabbed by a devil child, to boot.

rating: 3.5

did you now? behind the scenes facts:

the kid in this episode is played by the same actor that played the creepy kid in season one’s “conduit.”

notable quotables:

m: “see, this is a helium balloon here and one thing i did learn in kindergarten is that when you let them go they float up, up, and away, but, see, this is moving away from him. horizontally.” s: “did you learn about wind in kindergarten?” i laughed way too hard at this.
