Trivia

Upon Agent Scully's discovering that Fellig hasn't aged at least since 1964, Agent Ritter says the guy is "a regular Dick Clark." Dick Clark is known for looking eternally young, even into advanced age. See more »

Goofs

The knife pulled by the hood to stab Fellig makes the clear sound of a switchblade. The knife found at the scene, shown in close-up in the evidence bag, is a fold-out. It would not have made the sound of a switchblade, even if the hood had 'flipped' it out. See more »

Enjoyable X-Files' "Monster of the Week"
19 October 2006 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

An FBI agent from the New York City field office has an X-File: Alfred Fellig (Geoffrey Lewis), a photographer who gets to the scene - BEFORE the crime! With Mulder in hot water with Deputy Director Kirsh, Scully is sent alone to NYC to investigate the mystery. Meanwhile Mulder discovers that Mr. Fellig has been taking photographs of death for a LONG time!

This is one of the best dark episodes of season 6. It's very well done and enjoyable - I've liked Geoffrey Lewis since "The Wind and the Lion", and he turns in a fine performance.

Much of season 6 is self-parodic or derivative. This episode is a classic, and the equal of the best stuff from the Vancouver period.
