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

This episode is one of the few X-Files episodes to contain mass media songs in it. During the primal beating of the deputy sheriff and his wife, the radio inside the Peacock family vehicle prominently plays the song "Wonderful! Wonderful!" by Johnny Mathis. See more »

If I Had to Pick One!
15 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I had to pick one episode to show a group for a special occasion like Halloween or some other informal group movie party from this series, I would choose this one "Home." To balance out the extra creepy and horrific violence and monster-us characters, there is a big helping of Fox Mulder goofing off and spouting nerdy hipster one-liners.

Many film techniques of horror movies is used with great effect with a minimum of makeup, special effects, CGI, etc.

The actress who plays the mother of the clan succeeds in pulling off one of the scariest scenes in the entire series. Surprisingly, she is actually quite attractive in real life.

Spoiler: Queasy types may want to fast forward past the scene where the song "Wonderful, wonderful" is played for the first time.

Not for the weak of heart, but a masterpiece in writing and presentation.
