Plan 9 From Hollywood
25 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

When a '60s radical turns up dead in the crypt of a prominent Catholic it looks like a great basis for a movie to Deputy Director Skinner's old college pal, writer/producer Wayne Federman (as himself.) It's inexplicable weirdness on screen and off as Mulder and Scully try to handle Hollywood and a case that involves a Da-Vinci-coded soup bowl and the dancing dead.

I guess it had to happen - the show about show business. And it is just as awful as you might expect, combining both a self-parodical X-File AND a parody of a Hollywood treatment of the X-Files! Where does this leave viewers? Near the bottom of the unbrakeable slide in quality that is season 7. Once we were on a search for answers, then we were on a search for questions. Now we're just looking for laughs.

In the finale scene, keep your eye peeled for the Chris Carter zombie - the one with tongue THROUGH cheek and skewered in place with a blue pencil. Oh wait, that's not visible on-screen...
