9BEST: SEASON 4, EPISODE 2 “HOME”
Get ready for some nightmare fuel. This season four episode, written by Glen Morgan and James Wong and directed by Kim Manners, sparked so much controversy and induced so much fear that Fox blocked it from being re-aired. It’s by far the scariest X-Files episode of all time and easily
beats tons of horror movies at their own game.
“Home,” with its twisted plot and characters, is rightfully considered an X-Files classic and one of the show's best episodes. Revolving around a trio of murderous and deformed inbred brothers who keep their paraplegic mother/sexual partner stashed under the bed on a secluded farm in the middle of nowhere, Pennsylvania, this episode is one of the most disgusting hours of television you'll find.
