Literally. Our Town has Mulder & Scully investigating a rural town in Arkansas that may have a cannibalistic cult. It's very creepy, especially toward the end. I really like Rob Bowman's direction of this episode. Some of visuals really stuck out to me. The first is when Mulder and Scully are viewing the video at the beginning of the episode and you can clearly see their reflections as they watch the video. I like that for some reason. I also like the visual of Paula Gray sinking into the feed. It's a symbolic foreshadowing of what Mulder and Scully discover later. Finally, anytime you see a river full of blood, you know you're in for a gruesome treat. A funny moment is when Scully enters the room containing the bones with a bucket of Chaco Chicken. Mulder then explains his cannibalistic idea and Scully decidedly places the bucket of chicken down. This episode has it all: creepiness, suspense, grossness, action, & humor. Throw in a good story to boot, and you have the makings of a great episode.
