In this episode, Mulder & Scully try to track down a mysterious entity that manifests itself as the worst fears of the victims it kills. One of the victims is apparently attacked by a manifestation of Freddy Krueger. In the "Nightmare on Elm Street" films, Freddy Krueger's power was dependent upon the fear of victims he haunted and subsequently killed in their dreams. See more

This episode has two opening credits sequences. The first is the standard opening of the Fox reality series "Cops" (1989), with which this is a crossover (except with images of Mulder and Scully from the episode among the standard police scenes). The regular series credits appear following the teaser. See more
