Oil Worms - Black biotoxin of extraterrestrial origin that
congeals into tiny worms and penetrates human orifices on episodes
of the fantasy drama THE X-FILES/FOX/1993-2002. The Black oil (aka
"Purity") appeared in the episodes "Piper Maru," "Tunguska," "Terma,"
"Patient X" and "The Red and the Black." On episode "Tunguska"
Special FBI agent Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) is strapped to a
table, held firmly in place by a blanket of chicken wire, infected
with the oily black worms and then injected (in his left arm) with
an amber liquid.
The inhuman experiments were an attempt to create
a vaccine against the alien virus. The black oil's filmy membrane
could be seen swimming across the surface of it host's eyes. Once
infected, the host's will was under the control of the black oil
organism and after an incubation period an alien being would feed
on its host then burst from its body.
Traces of the black oil were
discovered inside a four-billion-year-old rock found in Tunguska,
Siberia, the site of a cataclysmic fireball from space that hit
the region in 1908. The black oil also appeared in the feature
film spin-off The X-Files: The Movie (1998).
A variation of Black
Oil called "Black Cancer" will cause a paralytic stupor when
injected into human test subjects. The Black Cancer is the
lifeless remains of Black Oil. The Black Cancer cellular structure
is identical to the Black Oil and was used to develop a virus to
neutralize the living Black Oil.
