Hot on the heels of The X-Files WonderCon presentation, which has sent many fans into a frenzy - comes yet another fake image to help throw X-Filies off the scent of the forthcoming film's plot.
As I've stated before, Chris Carter already got me with the fake werewolf image. I was silly, I was excited, but once bitten, twice shy. Now I am very suspicious of anything X-Files related.
So what does this new image entail? More werewolves. Well, in particular an image that purports to show a test of David Duchovny in mid-transformation into a lycanthrope and a call sheet to help convince us that this is the case.
Don't worry, it is a fake - but it seems that Chris Carter is the person behind this barrage of disinformation.
I have to wonder, when will it stop?
Actually, I don't think it will.
I feel that Carter is hoping that schmucks like me stop posting these stories, because they won't know what is real and what is fake.
Well Chris, I might not believe you, but I am following this film like Mulder follows a UFO, so no matter how "out there" or bizarre these stories become, I will try and discover the truth.
Just to highlight the effort that these guys went to in order to convince us that the picture was real, here is the original picture, a promo still from Duchovny's show Californication:
And here's a side by side comparison for you:
I have to admit they did a really nice job. Heck, they even thickened up Duchovny's hairline. However, to make it more convincing, you would have thought that they could have chosen a less available image... but I think that Carter gets his kicks from letting us know that they are fake. Sadist!
That's it for now, but I don't think that we have heard the last of Carter and his shenanigans.
Like I always say, the truth is out there, and I intend to find it.
It however may take until The X-Files 2 is released on July 25 2009.
