Drive-In Dust Offs: Trick Or Treat (1986)

9 July 2016 1:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I’ll confess. I have a real mushy soft spot for Heavy Metal music. Back in the ‘80s, in my teen years, my buddy Nick and I would crank the latest from Kiss, Scorpions, Judas Priest, Cinderella, etc. And there’s something specifically about Metal tailored to teenagers – that heightened sense of drama we feel at that age, the hormonal urges, and the need to push back against ‘society’. (Right – but please give us our allowances to consume products, okay?)

But Metal also equated with power, which was aligned with evil, and before long, many parents came up with the notion that Metal was Satan’s music. (Is the Pmrc still a thing? Brr.) Well, marketing is marketing, and few Metal bands fought the label (hell, some even embraced it). So it seemed the timing was right for that satanic safe haven, the Horror Film, to meet up with the »

The X-Files: The Event Series Review

6 July 2016 11:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After nine years of monsters, aliens and shadow government conspiracies, The X-Files closed its doors during the spring of 2002. Taken off air as a result of declining ratings and a general drop in quality, its loss left a large hole in the hearts of many who’d followed along since the early 90s.

Thankfully for us Xphiles, what was once thought to be dead didn’t stay buried long. In 2008, creator Chris Carter brought his now iconic series back into the limelight with the stand-alone movie, I Want to Believe. However, while it brought fans the married Mulder and Scully tandem that they’d been pining for for years, an uninteresting plot, some embarrassing writing and poor casting decisions led to a box office flop.

I Want to Believe‘s high profile failure was thought to be the final nail in the show’s coffin. Fans were unhappy, Fox was »

The X-Files S10 E04: Home Again review

29 February 2016 1:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Review of The X-Files, Season 10 Episode 4, by Dan Bullock – February 2016

Home Again sees the return of Glen Morgan to writing and directing duties and becomes, unquestionably, a thoughtful plot that powerfully reminds us of Scully and Mulder’s relationship, their history, and more importantly it made me believe again in their past. The revival has tried to pack in as much as viably possible and here we get to relive their connection, which in turn gives a better, more intense, display of Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny’s acting talent.

The opening scenes offer us a glimpse of the ‘cleansing’ of homeless people from the streets by the local law enforcement. The dark, dirty streets are shrouded in the unknown and although these acts, in themselves, are somewhat extreme, it doesn’t excessively shock as I’m sure we’re all aware this happens in real life but we often pretend not to notice. »

Chris Carter created 'The X-Files,' and was by far the worst part of the revival

22 February 2016 7:13 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's The X-Files finale — and thoughts on the revival as a whole — coming up just as soon as I've sequenced my own genome... Chris Carter created The X-Files. He created Mulder and Scully. He cast Duchovny and Anderson. He dreamed up the mythology, and the Monster of the Week structure that alternated with it. He hired Glen Morgan, James Wong, Frank Spotnitz, Vince Gilligan, Darin Morgan, Howard Gordon, and everyone else who walked through that writers room. Chris Carter is responsible for so much that made The X-Files an all-time classic. Chris Carter should also never write or direct another episode of the show, assuming the actors agree to return for another abbreviated season. Of the revival's six episodes, one was great ("Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster"), one was very good ("Home Again"), one was mediocre at best ("Founder's Mutation"), and three were awful.

Are More "The X-Files" Episodes Coming?

19 February 2016 9:34 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Five episodes of Fox's "The X-Files" reboot have aired so far with the finale on the way on Monday. On the whole it hasn't been a critical success - Darin Morgan's hilarious Were-Monster third episode being the only true standout, though Glen Morgan's fourth episode "Home Again" has some big defenders.

Ratings wise though it has had a healthy response, and has led to the obvious question - will there be more episodes after this event series wraps? At present there are no plans in place for another season, though the network has specifically indicated Monday's episode is a "season finale" and not a "series finale".

Speaking with Variety, Fox entertainment president David Madden was asked about the show's fate to which he responded:

"We said before it aired that we would love to do more, and we are over the moon with the performance. So far, the response has been really encouraging. »

The X-Files Season 10 Episode 4 Review – ‘Home Again’

17 February 2016 2:45 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Martin Carr reviews the fourth episode of The X-Files season 10…

Past life trauma and theological notions of self are the focus for Mulder and Scully this week. Using theories on inspiration, creativity and the indelible idea of original thought as a jumping off point. In an episode written and directed by veteran X-Files producer and scribe Glen Morgan.

Pulling in threads from Mulder and Scully’s past relationship, Morgan draws on the old whilst intriguing a new audience. Never once dropping the ball and giving people what they want to see. Which starts as a ground level civic housing issue and balloons into supernatural shenanigans before you can say Michael Myers. Not that repeatedly resurrected universal Bogeyman has any place here.

What we get instead is a tale which moves along at quite a rate. Contains more than a little gore and equal amounts of quizzical looks between out dynamic duo. »

Famous Monster Kid: X-Files Triple-threat Glen Morgan

10 February 2016 2:26 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

The six-episode return of The X-Files is four shows deep now, with the “event series” adopting more of a “Monster of the Week” format than the solidly connective storyline that many fans had anticipated. Still, this week’s episode, “Home Again,” written and directed by longtime X-Files writer/producer Glen Morgan, made a concerted effort to balance a brand-new monster with Scully and Mulder’s (Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny) emotional “abandoned child” storyline.

Morgan, a longtime fan of Famous Monsters going back to his childhood, took time to break down “Home Again,” discuss some of his favorite X-Files episodes, and recall his Monster Kid roots in our latest FM Podcast. Listen Here!

“This series, maybe more than others, has a very varied fan base,” Morgan tells FM of the challenges to cater to demand. “You have the mythology fans, you have the monster-of-the-week fans, you have the weird science fans, »

‘The X-Files’ Recap: “Home Again” – Taking Out the Trash

8 February 2016 7:07 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The second episode of 'The X-Files' Revival to be directed and written by Glen Morgan shows a similar, thrilling inventiveness as "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-monster" but also shows a similar inelegance in brazenly putting politics over tone and narrative that made "My Struggle" so disappointing.

The X-Files Recap: You Are Responsible!

8 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

"You are responsible!" blares a sign posted on a side street in West Philadelphia. Seconds later, a fire hose blasts the message away. How's that for emphasis? It's a perfect note on which to begin "Home Again," the fourth episode of the X-Files miniseries, which is unapologetically blunt with its themes and emotions. Written and directed by co-executive producer Glen Morgan — who, along with James Wong, penned many of the original series' strongest installments — this is a story soaked in blood, sweat, and tears.Let's start with blood. Joseph Cutler (Alessandro Juliani) is a mid-level bureaucrat in the City of Brotherly Love, tasked with rounding up homeless people to make way for gentrification. He's the kind of unsympathetic pencil pusher who might as well have "Just doin' my job" tattooed on his forehead. But surely even he doesn't deserve the punishment meted out in the episode's tense and atmospheric »

Review: Scully and Mulder go 'Home Again' in a terrific 'X-Files'

8 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's The X-Files coming up just as soon as I do stairs in three-inch heels... "I don't care about the big questions right now, Mulder." -Scully The title "Home Again," and the presence of Glen Morgan as writer and director, fueled speculation that this episode would be a sequel to the grossest X-Files of them all: the Morgan and James Wong-scripted "Home," about the family of inbred killers. The "Home Again" Monster of the Week is pretty disgusting in its own right, and the episode even features a brutal murder ironically scored to a mid-20th century pop tune (in this case, Petula Clark's "Downtown"). But the hour instead turns out to be a sequel to a few other Morgan/Wong episodes, most notably season 2's "One Breath," with Mulder at the bedside of a comatose Scully. On a purely Motw level, "Home Again" was »

The X-Files: What You Need to Know About the Emotional "Home Again"

8 February 2016 5:30 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The X-Files will unleash something for your nightmares in "Home Again." The fourth episode of the six-episode event series hails from executive producer, writer and director Glen Morgan and finds Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania investigating the murder of a federal official. Things get more complicated from there, obviously, it's The X-Files. Sadly there's no It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia crossover. Here's what we can tell you about the spooky and emotional hour. There's a big crisis. Well, there's more than one crisis, but there's a something that will hit home hard for The X-Files fans. The Band-Aid Nose Man is »

The X-Files episode 4 review: Home Again

The X-Files revival is finally starting to feel more confident. Now, if it can just stop shoe-horning in references to its past...

This review contains spoilers.

Like Founder’s Mutation, this is an episode with the arc plot concerning Scully’s baby William at its core, masquerading as a stand-alone story, and it blends the themes, tone and ideas of its two plots beautifully.

Twenty years ago, The X-Files did an episode called Home. It was written by James Wong, who wrote and directed Founder’s Mutation, and Glen Morgan, who wrote and directed this episode. Home was the first episode to be given a viewer discretion warning for graphic content and it wasn’t repeated by the network for years. It’s something of a Marmite episode; many loved it for its shocking content, classic horror vibe, and exploration of the nature of the nuclear family »

Darin Morgan Brings The X-Files’ New Season to the Level of Its Best Work

2 February 2016 7:58 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster” was well on its way to becoming a pantheon X-Files episode, but the graveyard scene between Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and the shape-shifting lizard creature (Flight of the Conchords regular Rhys Darby) put it over the top. “Did you lose somebody recently?” Mulder asks in last night’s episode, finding his quarry, perhaps inevitably named Guy Mann, loitering near a couple of tombstones. “Yeah,” Mann says. “Myself.”It’s the sort of rueful philosophical exchange, poised on the edge of self-parody without crossing over, that could only have been written by Darin Morgan (who directed the episode as well), the brother of X-Files writer-producer Glen Morgan (no slouch himself) and the most playful and idiosyncratic of the show’s storytellers, which is saying a lot. Morgan’s first contact with the series was as a performer: He played the Flukeman in season two’s “The Host, »

Watch: First look featurette for new The X-Files!

21 January 2016 1:35 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It is, quite literally, getting closer by the week and although those lucky lot in the Us will be getting to see the return of Mulder and Scully first, the UK will be following very quickly with Channel 5 bringing The X-Files back to the British masses.

Chris Carter, David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson, Mitch Pileggi all return for a six-episode outing in which anything can happen in a mix up of stand-alone episodes and those that further the original show’s seminal mythology. In the opening ep, our Mulder and Scully take on a case of a possible alien abductee. The all-new episodes will feature appearances by guest stars including Joel McHale (Community), Robbie Amell (The Flash), Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), Annabeth Gish (The Bridge), Annet Mahendru (The Americans), Rhys Darby (Flight of the Conchords), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) and William B. Davis, who reprises his role as “Cigarette Smoking Man. »

Rewatching the X-Files: my 50-episode binge

21 January 2016 1:20 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Before the new season begins this weekend, Chuck Bowen watched 50 episodes of The X-Files’s huge back catalogue, and rediscovered a world of paranoia, human tapeworms and two lead characters perfectly in sync

The immensity of The X-Files, which ran on Fox for nine seasons from 1993 to 2002, is never more apparent than when scrolling through the vast season-by-season directories on Netflix. There are 202 episodes of creator Chris Carter’s original series, harking back to a time when a TV season was comprised of over 20 episodes, rather than the comparatively compressed 12-14 episode arcs we see today. (A development that could be taken as a symbol of evolving TV culture: for many, a series might have once been work, rather than the highest artistic calling.)

At the time of the show’s initial run, I was a casual teenaged fan. I recall some of the episodes written by Vince Gilligan, who »
