Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate the death of Maria Dorantes, a migrant farm worker who was found in a field near the shanty town in which she lived. There were reports of a very bright flash of light followed by a yellow rain just as she was killed. Scully's examination of the body reveals that she died as a result of a massive fungal infection. The locals however are certain that the culprit is El Chupacabra, a mythical beast from Mexican folklore. They're also sure the beast is to be found in Eladio Buente, Maria's brother-in-law who was with her when she died. While Scully looks for a scientific explanation, Mulder believes the fungus may be alien in origin. Regardless, they must find Eladio before the fungus spreads. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The chupacabra is loosely translated to mean "goat sucker". Its legend is that it sucks the blood from farm animals. Recent research suggests that the legend of the chupacabra may derive from coyotes with severe parasitic infections. See more »

John Shiban's X-termination
11 February 2007 | by (Midwest) – See all my reviews

For his third attempt at writing, Shiban once again proves he hasn't a clue as to what he's doing (Teso dos Bichos should have gotten him fired immediately and ranks as one of very worst, if not THE WORST). Of course, for those who have seen the entire series, this is no great surprise. Ironically, or rather as a result of his future (and inexplicable) promotion to co-producer/producer, he almost single-handedly helped to ruin the show. Just wait till you get to garbage like Tavelers, S. R. 819, and the odious Jump The Shark. Thanks John, I hope you're happy. All, I know is, somewhere Glen Morgan and James Wong are laughing their tails off.
