Truly scary X-Files eps...

Seeing as how the movie has rekindled my interest in old XF episodes, I was watching seasons one and two, I was amazed by how scary some episodes were, especially since we have had a wave of gory films lately, but none of those schlock-fests have been as mentally stimulating as those old XF horror stories.

I am thinking of ICE, IRRESTISTIBLE, DIE HAND DIE VERLETZT, and then later on, episodes like HOME.

What are some of your favorite scary episodes of XF?

I'm sure everyone will go on about Home, but I would also say Die Hand Die Verletzt from Season 2
Scary teachers!

Sure, I'd agree that Home is still pretty scary. Here are a few more that still give me the chills when watching at night in the dark...

Pilot
Squeeze
Ice
Tooms
Irresistible
2Shy
Oubliette
Unruhe
Tithonus

Law & Order fans will probably agree.

I never followed the series much, but the one with the Chupacabra and the one with the giant underground fungus were fairly creepy.

Some good ones already mentioned, but I always found Calusari to be pretty unnerving as well.

^ Did you mean Darkness Falls? That one sticks in my mind too as a genuinely scary episode.

‘Home’ wasn’t so much scary to me as much as it was highly DISTURBING, with a capital ‘D’.
