The investigation of a neighborhood monster isn't too weird for the crew of Cops to follow around Mulder and Scully.

Crazy Credits

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 »

The FBI has nothing to hide.
26 July 2007 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

Very creative idea for a cross-over. There are so many things I like about this episode that I won't even try to name them all. All I can say is there is some violence on this episode that I doubt they would actually play on Cops. Kudos to the gay black couple and the old Mexican lady. "You catch" as she points to the sketch of Freddy Krueger. I think I kind of like the idea that those who are so prone to panic over little nothings are the ones that get killed in this episode. Good riddance to most of them I say. Like the lady at the morgue when Scully is doing the autopsy. Man was I glad when she finally shut up. Anyway, 9/10 for me.
