Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a newborn child found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of a small town. Mulder loves the locale and thinks it's small-town America at its best. It even has a sheriff by the name of Andy Taylor. Sheriff Taylor is highly reluctant to investigate the family nearest where the baby was found however. He tells the agents that the three brothers who live there are all simple, the product of generations of inbreeding in the Peacock family. When the Sheriff is killed, all evidence points to the Peacocks and the FBI agents are shocked at what they find in the house. Written by garykmcd

Awesome Episode!
12 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I live in Southeastern Tennessee and sometimes you encounter people who talk exactly like Ms. Peacock. Every time it happens, I get a chill and it reminds me of this episode. I still think that episode is the most shocking x-files ever made. Playing Johnny Mathis' "Wonderful, Wonderful" during the trip to the sheriff's house was a stroke of genius. Very creepy. I had heard that the idea of the mother being under the bed came from Charlie Chaplin's autobiography. Supposedly, he had met some people who wanted him to meet their family and the mother was under the bed similarly to Ms. Peacock. I have often wondered if other people were as disturbed by this episode as I was.
