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

Trivia

Sources consulted by the writers included Brother's Keeper (1992), a documentary film depicting the story of the Wards, four barely literate brothers who lived on a farm passed down through their family for generations. The brothers drew international attention following the alleged murder of William Ward by his brother Delbert. With an estimated IQ of 68, Delbert escaped prosecution by claiming that the police had tricked him during interrogation. See more »

You Can't Go Home Again
27 July 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

After the exciting season opening Herrenvolk, the MOTW episodes open with a bang with Home. Home is dark, gritty, violent, disturbing episode that was banned from network TV reruns for awhile because of its content. It's a very good episode that shows some excellent directing by Kim Manners. The set design of the Peacock's house couldn't have been better. You felt that someone was going to jump out and grab Mulder and Scully whenever they entered that creepy house. Although there is no paranormal aspect to this episode, the story and character still grip your attention. The dark story is even interlaced with some light moments between Mulder and Scully to help alleviate the mood a little. Besides the excessive violence which turned me off a little, the only other complaint of this episode is right after Deputy Pastor gets killed by the Peacocks. Scully observes it through binoculars and then, Mulder starts soliloquizing about how the Peacocks have reverted back to animal instincts. His lines are quite out of place for that scene. Spoken later, it would have been all right. If you want a good scare, watch Home alone, at night, around Halloween time. It will deliver.
