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

Boring and stupid
12 January 2014 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

It's almost as stupid as my review. Why? There's a ridiculous plot, flat characters, pathetic figurative expression at the end. I know it's should be some kind of spoof of the genre, but it's really weak and funny in a bad way. The comparison of Mexicans to aliens in that way don't catch at all. Explanation that they're "not visible" is even more idiotic than chupacabra legend itself. This episode doesn't deserve 10 lines of review so I just write random words to apprehend essence of this episode. Such soap opera kind of story and silly acting. Yes, I'm irritated by it. I usually don't write any reviews and I don't care if someone will block this lame feature to me.
