We’re still waiting to hear if Calculon has accepted an offer to play one of the villains, but thanks to Screen Daily, we do know Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley are on board.

X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Squeeze" (September 24, 1993)

“Squeeze” is The X-Files (1993 – 2002) first “monster-of-the-week” installment. As such, it represents a template for future entries such as “2Shy,” “Teliko,” “Hungry,” and “Alone.” Most of these monster-of-the-week-styled outings deal with a murderous genetic mutation of one type or another, but one who -- out of some biological deficiency -- kills human beings in order to survive. This mutant pinpoints in the human physiology, then, the key to controlling its own existence and satisfying that aforementioned defici ... [Continua a leggere]

Exclusive : What are the chances of an X-Files 3?

For as long as I can remember, I have had one passion. It involves two FBI agents, and their tireless search for ‘the truth’. For years we watched them investigate hundreds of bizarre cases – from liver eating mutants through to alien abductions and super soldiers. For those familiar with ”The X-Files” mythology – Series creator Chris Carter’s finale ‘The Truth’ provided a pathway and a date for the final alien invasion that would come with the end of the series movie, which would ultimately finalize the franchise. At a charity event that ... [Continua a leggere]

X-Files 20th Anniversary Blogging: "Pilot" (September 10, 1993)

But even better, the X-Files “Pilot” is skillful in the manner by which it deploys (and co-opts) horror imagery or symbolism. I a ... [Continua a leggere]
