Monster of the Week: 

  • Haxil Beast: The Haxil beast is an inner earth demon that can imbue humans with its lifeforce, which allows them to impregnate women with the demon's children. After doing the deed, the victim woman wakes up the next morning eight months pregnant with multiple demon children. The Haxil controls these women using a telepathic link to its children. It can't be killed by fire or decapitation and is very, very large. In the episode, it is frozen with liquid nitrogen and shattered. The act of destroying the monster terminates the pregnancies.


For over a century, the vampire, Angelus, blazed a swath of murder and mayhem across Europe, until a gypsy curse restored his soul. His guilt and remorse eventually led him to Los Angeles where he battles evil and helps the helpless in his neverending quest for redemption.
