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

You Can't Keep a Peacock Down!
22 April 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

The notorious "Home" is, and forgive me for being clichéd, probably the most disturbing and scariest X-File. I like how, despite its morbid content, it has a sense of humor about it and manages to be thrilling and not TOO hard to watch.

The Peacocks make for some of the most twisted and scariest villains of the entire series. If there's a flaw it's that the makeup on the sons could have been more creative, but the makeup on the mother is spot-on and very creepy. The use of music in this episode is absolutely remarkable.

Almost certainly the most disturbing X-File, "Home" is a well-executed episode with an excellent, complex, and detailed script to aid it. A high point in the series.

10/10
