The X-Files (season 5, episode 10)

The X-Files

TV Show|1993
The exploits of FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully who investigate X-Files: marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena. Mulder believes in the existence of aliens and the paranormal while Scully, a skeptic, is assigned to make scientific analyses of Mulder's discoveries that debunk Mulder's work and thus return him to mainstream cases.

The X-Files (Season 5)

TV Show Season|1997

"Chinga" (English: "Chinga") is the tenth episode of the fifth season of the TV series "The X-Files". The episode belongs to the "monster of the week" type and is not related to the main "mythology" of the series.

The cursed doll in general terms resembles a toy from the short story "Monkey" by Stephen King.

Scully, while on vacation in a quiet resort town in Maine, observes a terrible picture: people in a supermarket spontaneously injure themselves, and a butcher stabs himself in the eye with a knife. All the threads of the investigation converge on a little girl with a strange doll from the 1940s.

Phenomena in artwork: Clairvoyance

A woman, whom the locals consider a hereditary witch, sees in the reflections on the glass (shop windows, windows, etc.) images of people who will soon die as a result of the actions of the cursed doll. Perhaps a woman can predict other deaths, but this is not shown in the series.

Phenomena in artwork: Animated objects

The doll that the girl's father finds in the sea turns out to be cursed and is able to influence people, forcing them to harm themselves. First of all, it causes harm to people who have caused the girl's discontent, as well as to those who threaten the doll, its owner or want to separate them.

Usually the doll's eyes are closed, but before attacking a person, they open, and a frightening phrase sounds from the built-in speaker (as a rule, "I want to play", but there are other options). A person attacked by a doll sees her as if she is able to move independently, but often at this time the doll is in the hands of a girl.

The doll is able to influence not only people, but also material objects: open and close doors, blow out matches, etc.

It is possible to rid the girl of the influence of the possessed toy and stop her attacks on her mother only by placing the doll in a working microwave oven. At the end of the episode, a burnt doll is shown, which has not lost its abilities.
