Storyline

Mulder and Scully head off to the Pacific Northwest when there are reports that 30 loggers seem to have simply disappeared. Mulder is aware of a similar case for the 1930s and along with a Forest Ranger and a representative of the logging company, the agents head off into the woods. They know that environmental activists are active in the area and when they come across one of them, he says that a swarm of bugs that only comes out at night is responsible for the deaths. A body they find wrapped in a bug cocoon seems to bear out his claim. With no way to communicate with the outside world and with the gas for the generator running low, they have to find a way to survive. Written by garykmcd

Freddies And Monkey Wrenchers
14 April 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Like the episode Ice, Darkness Falls takes our favorite agents and puts them in an isolated area away from civilization. This time it is in the pacific northwest. Fortunately, this time Mulder and Scully and the people they are with don't have to fight with each other. They're all united against being killed by the green bugs. This episode has some good suspenseful, creepy moments. These moments occur when darkness falls, just as the episode title suggests. There is some great antagonism between the lumber company man and the monkey wrencher. The suspense keeps you riveted up until the very end. The end of the climax and the resolution, however, leave some big questions unanswered. It makes me feel like the writers thought, "Oh, we ran out of time. Let's hurry and wrap this episode up." So even though the ending leaves you wanting more, the rest of the episode is very good and definitely worth watching.
